We advise clients buying and selling businesses including large companies, small to medium size enterprises and professional partnerships.
The ability to successfully handle a corporate deal is far more than just knowing the law. Our corporate lawyers combine technical excellence with the practical skills and determination to drive a transaction forward and manage the process to completion. Our advice is based on a pragmatic approach which allows clients to effectively manage and judge their legal risk.
We identify and engage with key issues at an early stage and concentrate on what is most important to you, rather than becoming bogged down in unnecessary processes and paperwork.
Our team and experience
In recent years we have worked on a wide variety of transactions across different industry sectors, with completed deals ranging in value from £100,000 to over £200 million.
Our team of specialist lawyers are in the unique position of being equally comfortable advising experienced entrepreneurs and executives who expect a commercially aware approach, family businesses, and first-time buyers and sellers who are likely to need a greater level of support and guidance through the transaction process.
We are ranked in The Legal 500 for M&A deals up to £50 million, and listed as a noted firm in Chambers UK for lower mid-market corporate M&A. Our lawyers are described in The Legal 500 (2022) as "collaborative and yet authoritative." We were also noted in the same directory for our "great diversity of fee earners, with excellent female lawyers leading client-facing delivery teams."
Recent transactions of note include advising the:
- G Adventures group on their acquisition of Travelsphere and Just You
- founders of BiGDUG Limited on their sale to the Takkt AG group
- sellers of Chambers Travel Group on their disposal to ASX listed Corporate Travel Management
