Helping you and your business to grow, with commercial peace of mind
Running a business is tough. As a leader, you are constantly juggling competing pressures across people, processes, finance and regulation, whilst trying to manage and execute successful growth. When it comes to selecting a legal advisor, you need to be able to trust that your lawyer will keep the pace with you, understand your objectives and work collaboratively with you to meet them.
Our Company Corporate team has vast experience in advising businesses on any aspect of managing their growth; from setting out as a start-up, to development, expansion and disposal of assets. We work with businesses of all sizes: from entrepreneurial management teams to corporate PLCs.
We pride ourselves upon the delivery of ‘peace of mind’, which is what we call our approach to solving problems. And we do this with confidence, because 90% of our corporate and commercial team have worked ‘in-house’ in businesses, understanding the impact of their advice in a commercial context.
