Corporate Commerical

We provide legal advice across all manner of Corporate matters to help businesses of all sizes develop and grow, whether organically or through mergers and acquisitions. We are able to facilitate such transactions from beginning to end. At the same time we also advise and facilitate overseas Companies in opening offices or acquiring businesses or assets in the UK.

We are experienced in corporate transactions of all types, from constitutional issues to shareholder agreements, and advising management teams and financiers on financial and investment structures and agreements. We are also experienced in Private Equity deals in various sectors, and act for investors seeking out new opportunities in emerging markets and the Asia Pacific Region.

Initial Public Offerings (IPO) and pre-IPO funding arrangements are a key element of our corporate finance practice and we have considerable expertise in listing companies on the AIM and AQSE (formerly ISDX/PLUS) markets. This has included acting for several high-profile Chinese companies on their AIM flotations, as well as advising on secondary fundraisings and other capital market transactions.

Our Corporate lawyers offer commercial services ranging from dealing with standard terms and conditions of sale, to negotiating and advising on an extensive range of commercial contracts, franchise agreements and agency/distribution agreements.

We communicate directly with him (sometimes on weekends if urgent), he is fast and effective. He writes readable, logical, tight and fair agreements. His advice is rarely off point and never without value.
