Our Expertise

Family businesses

We have a long history of acting for some of the most well-established owner-managed businesses, both in the UK and overseas. We understand what drives family businesses, and provide strategic advice to help owners and executive management teams achieve their ambitions. We are experts in advising on succession planning and wealth preservation opportunities.

Investment funds and managers

We advise on the regulatory issues and structuring of all kinds of investment funds, including hedge funds, limited partnerships and LLPs, investment syndicates, OEICs and unit trusts, both for onshore and offshore clients. Our aim is to simplify complexities and to implement the appropriate structure seamlessly with overseas advisers where necessary.

High-net-worth individuals

We advise high-net-worth individuals, whether they need practical advice on a commercial dispute, an employment contract, or on setting up and running a successful company.

Entrepreneurs and investors

We recognise that entrepreneurs require proactive, highly commercial advice. Our lawyers work with entrepreneurs to set up new businesses, advise them on legal issues going forward and in dealing with any problems that arise.

Mid-market companies

Our team advise mid-market clients whether they are seeking capital to expand their business or are looking to become publicly traded. We have the experience to guide our clients through IPOs as well as pre-market and secondary fundraisings.

Sectors

Our clients include established household names, fast growing and developing companies, smaller quoted companies, high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs and their private and family businesses. They are drawn from a wide range of industries, but with an emphasis on property companies, investment funds, commodities trading (from regulatory issues to structuring), IT and e-commerce, media and the hotels and leisure sector.
