Corporate and M&A
All our lawyers are experts in corporate and commercial law. We advise companies and their executive teams on company formations, commercial contracts and shareholder agreements.
Our corporate governance expertise extends across directors and officers liability, executive compensation, compliance with legislation, and regulatory filings.
We also have a depth of experience in corporate finance; working with accountants, lenders and investment bankers to structure the appropriate finance for our clients’ commercial activities.
Specific to mergers & acquisitions, we advise clients on both the buy side and sell side of transactions, organising letters of intent (LOI), transaction heads of terms, and non-disclosure or exclusivity agreements.
Our best practice approach to the deal process, involves organised work stream and due diligence completion checklists, addressing matters such as party and advisor responsibilities, status updates and deadlines. As you would expect, we employ the latest technology to support our lawyers.
“My interest in the commercial interactions between law and the economy, and a keen sense of justice lead me to pursue a legal career.
My motivation comes from my daily interactions with people, and the opportunity to engage and support them. I enjoy being able to help clients to achieve their objectives, whether in court, or in negotiations.
To me, building a personal and trusting relationship with my clients is paramount.”
