If an M&A deal is on the cards for your business, there’s a lot at stake for you.

What do we do?

We understand the complexities of merger and acquisition (M&A) deals inside out. After all, with the most active corporate legal team in the UK, we’ve seen every kind of deal in the market. (Experian MarketIQ M&A Review, 2020)

We can tap straight into our extensive experience to get the best possible outcome for you with practical support, well-thought-out commercial strategy and robust legal advice every step of the way. Whether it’s advising on a business sale or purchase, joint venture, takeover, business structuring, private equity deal, flotation or re-organisation our solutions-focused team can help.

And having the right M&A team on hand can make all the difference. If you’re an individual entrepreneur, your deal is likely to be a life-changing opportunity to fulfil your life’s work – so we treat your business as our own. Equally, if you’re a company wanting to acquire or sell a non-core subsidiary, you’ve got the security of knowing you have the right team to guide you through it – all with the personal support of one of our experienced partners.

Clients describe the team as ‘very user-friendly, easy to work with and very responsive’, adding that the lawyers are ‘entrepreneurial and commercial’.
Chambers UK, 2019

Whatever the size of your deal, we work flexibly as part of your project team, adding value at every stage of the deal by understanding the objectives of your transaction inside out, anticipating its critical path issues, and offering pragmatic advice throughout the process.

Who do we help?

We advise private and public companies, owner-managed businesses and entrepreneurs on a wide range of corporate matters.
