Experts in the world of private companies and the ambitious people who lead them
A strong Corporate Department as well as a Private one is rare among law firms. It means that we are uniquely placed to look after the needs of private companies and their ambitious leaders, where business and personal interests come together.
We are tuned into the differences between an institutional mind set and that of a private company or individual. Understanding the values, motivations and priorities of our clients makes a significant difference to the outcome of a deal.
These are the kinds of dynamic businesses, wealth owners and dealmakers we act for, helping them make the right choices for their ventures and their private capital and then offering the practical support to populate, grow and protect these assets.
We know that our clients want to solve problems and capitalise on opportunities quickly. So, we challenge conventional ways of working. Solving the complex problems faced by businesses requires intelligent and often inventive strategies.
It is also crucial that private investors have the right support to structure any investment, so that it meets legal, tax and international requirements. We make sure the right structures are put in place and the right people recruited and incentivised. We oversee the share options, governance and ongoing asset protection that will determine whether the investment will grow and succeed.
We also believe that our commercial help should extend beyond the law. We pride ourselves on the assertive and practical approach that we take to deals. We are responsive and decisive: our speed comes from our confidence that we have understood and fully appreciate the motivations of owners and dealmakers.
