Just as not all businesses are the same, not all corporate lawyers are alike.
Whatever your business, we believe you want a corporate lawyer who:
gives straightforward advice
is able to take away some of your stress and strain
can project manage a transaction to successful completion, and do so within budget
has the technical and people skills to anticipate issues and avoid or overcome them
is able not just to follow your instructions but help you make clear decisions on what those instructions should be.
This applies whether you are:
selling your business
growing your business by merger or acquisition
restructuring your business
securing equity investment in your business
investing in another business.
It also applies equally to the day to day corporate issues that our clients encounter. Experience and client satisfaction are two of the most relevant considerations when it comes to considering which corporate lawyer to appoint to help you. We advise clients on a broad range of issues, including start-up and venture capital deals, joint ventures and helping traditional family businesses. We operate across a wide range of sectors, and clients tell us they value our practical and proactive approach to securing the best possible outcomes for them. That is why we believe we are the corporate lawyers for you.
To help provide you with some further background information, we have prepared a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
