Our Expertise

Corporate | Mergers & Acquisitions


We act on a wide range of corporate and commercial matters including M&A, private equity and venture capital investments and capital raisings. Our team has advised companies, private equity funds, venture capital funds, high net worth family offices and emerging companies in all stages of their investment and growth in both private and public M&A. We are proud to have acted on high profile cross-border transactions across a broad range of sectors.

We advise our clients on corporate and commercial matters through the life cycle of their business.


We believe clients should be able to expect technical excellence from their lawyers.

What we believe sets us apart is:

We listen

After all, it is your business.

We are not fence sitters and are prepared to offer our commercial view

We help you commercially assess the risks and make a call by bringing to the table our experience - that’s one of the reasons why we are trusted advisors to our clients.

We don’t just identify legal issues

We recommend how to deal with them and help you implement them.

We know the M&A market

But also understand that the market can change - we don't simply accept that something is standard, usual or market.

We give you our conclusions upfront

So you do not need to wade through pages of case law and commentary.
