Advising companies at every stage of their business
Our Corporate and Commercial team provides legal advice to both public and private companies to assist them at every stage of the corporate journey. We can help you buy in, buy out, purchase or sell assets, incorporate or reconstruct. We can assist with Stock Exchange and AIM listings or share issues.
We can also assist in facilitating business relationships such as joint ventures, partnership arrangements and share options. When it comes to protecting the fruits of your labour, we have specialists in commercial and consumer protection - intellectual property, licensing and exploitation agreements.
From the earliest days in your business, our highly experienced team of lawyers can help guide and advise you on the many legal requirements and regulations you will need to consider. This is when, either within the UK or abroad, you may be considering setting up an entirely new business, acquiring an existing concern, establishing a joint venture or investing in a franchise.
We work in partnership with our clients, assisting their growth, consolidation and expansion, usually over many years, until the time when they wish to exit the business often through a business sale or management buy-out.
Our network of professional contacts, financiers, investment specialists and property professionals enables us to offer you comprehensive advice on every aspect of your business evolution. We can clarify and help you evaluate the potential risks and rewards inherent in the various options open to you - working as part of your team to provide sound, individual support for future strategic growth.
Whether you are contemplating transforming your business structure, moving your business into or out of the UK, restructuring the organisation to fit a changed business environment, or considering listing on one of UK’s many stock markets, we can help. Additionally we are experts in management buy-outs and sales.
