We specialise in corporate and commercial law, with a specific focus on complex corporate transactions and business reorganisations. We act for domestic and international clients, sovereign funds, investment and commercial banks, insurance and financial services firms, as well as clients covering a broad spectrum of industry sectors, including automotive, energy, oil & gas, telecoms, digital & media, marketing and advertising and food & drink. The value we add for all our clients in these diverse sectors is driven by our experience and expertise in the following areas:
Strategic transaction advisory
We focus on our clients’ strategic objectives and align our delivery to the achievement of those objectives in the context of the deal.
Many of our clients have substantial cross-border activity and benefit from our track record in a vast number of jurisdictions, which enables us to deliver significant added value.
We have significant experience of acting as “deal counsel” on complex, cross-border transactions, as well as managing relationships with financial institutions and advisers.

Private Equity/Venture Capital
We have vast experience of managing key deal issues in both private equity and venture capital contexts, including the optimisation of financing structures, consortium and co-investment arrangements, management equity, and enabling an efficient exit from the relevant investment through a sale of shares or assets or listing on regulated markets.
