Clients don't just want to know the legal position of the opportunities or issues they face - they also want big picture analysis, solutions and above all else trusted advisors to discuss options and help make the right decisions.
The Corporate group specialises in advising businesses and individuals on the full spectrum of legal issues driving corporate transactions - from initial investment through to further business growth and development as well as securing eventual exit strategies.
Operating from the Thames Valley and with a major presence across the South East of England and beyond, the group has considerable experience across multiple industry sectors and markets advising clients on UK company law and working on transactions with deal values of up to £100 million.
In the last twelve months the group has acted on deals with an aggregate value in excess of £150 million working with a wide range of clients - from entrepreneurial start-ups and growing local businesses to institutional lenders and listed multinationals in sectors ranging from media, marketing and digital services through to healthcare, life sciences, technology, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing.
This proven track record enables the group's lawyers to match the right commercial approach to any given situation when negotiating and to know the key issues that are likely to develop throughout a transaction. This in turn enables clients to be guided through the legal process and ensures that their objectives are ultimately achieved – on time and to budget.
