Corporate and commercial

With extensive experience of acting on UK acquisitions and by teaming with local partners, we are able to act as a onestop shop for many of our clients’ international deals.

Our team is able to assist with: mergers and acquisitions; group restructuring; disposal of non-core business streams; distressed purchases; due diligence; incorporation of companies and LLPs; shareholders’ agreements; joint ventures and strategic alliances; management buy-outs and buy-ins; and private equity, corporate and project finance.

In addition, through our close connections with the leading industry bodies and a network of contacts within corporate finance advisers, we are able to assist with the creation of acquisition opportunities.

Data is a key asset of our clients’ businesses and through our experience of advising on IT, digital and electronic communication we are able to provide commercial advice on GDPR and data protection in general. This expertise, together with our understanding of our clients’ needs, enables us to give advice when and where it matters most.

We appreciate how important brand identity and IP is to the success of a client’s business and are experts in advising on this critical area.

We are able to help in the commercialisation of new ventures, identify and manage potential risks to their IP and introduce measures to safeguard: confidentiality and non-disclosure; copyright and moral rights; co-existence agreements; defamation; digital rights, e.g. domain names; IP litigation (both as claimant and defendant); licensing of IP rights; managing IP portfolios; patents; registered and unregistered design rights; and registered and unregistered trademarks.
