We work with a range of companies from renewables and high-growth companies to hospitality and leisure businesses, and we have long experience with supporting family businesses on the particular issues that face them.
Helping you start, grow or exit a company
Whenever we advise corporate clients, we always bear in mind your commercial aspirations as well as your legal requirements. We can offer you a full range of services, including:
- guiding business start-ups and spin-outs from creation to sale. This includes helping you prepare memorandum and articles of association, shareholders’ agreements, as well as to negotiate contracts, comply with regulation, and protect intellectual property
- refinancing or raising venture capital, whatever the stage and size of your business
- providing specialist advice on restructuring a company, including mergers and acquisitions, MBOs, joint ventures, strategic alliances, and reorganisation.
We also work with people looking to sell or acquire a business, liaising closely with other professionals such as accountants, and can assist with project-managing transactions.
Expertise in commercialisation and IP
Complementing our general advisory work for corporate clients is our particular expertise in the sector which includes commercialisation of research projects, technology/IT and intellectual property law.
