An entrepreneurial law firm ourselves, we have established a strong reputation as expert and trusted advisers to owner managed businesses, helping them to grow and move through incorporation, expansion, fundraising and ultimately to sale.
We provide practical support for a variety of business sizes and structures and have a close appreciation of the changing cultural and operational dynamics of businesses as they graduate from family or private to public ownership, as well as generational shifts.
We support our owner-managed business clients in identifying and solving their day-to-day legal, commercial and tax problems and help to address the major strategic challenges they face, from inception through mergers, acquisitions and financing to exit, through trade sales, management buyouts or flotations. A key part of our advice to the owners of businesses covers planning for the sale of the business, or transferring ownership to the next generation. Our owner-managed business team works closely with colleagues throughout our firm, to provide effective overall legal solutions that help our clients to achieve their business objectives.
The partner-led, highly personalised service that is the hallmark of our firm’s approach ensures that our clients benefit from continuity, clear communication and the responsiveness of an effective business partner.
A number of our partners focus on specific industry sectors, and the owner-managed business team can draw on the knowledge of our firm-wide sector teams enabling us to provide practical and commercially informed advice that gives our clients a competitive edge.
