When it comes to choosing the best advisers for your business, you need a team of corporate solicitors like ours that’s responsive, experienced and connected. We immerse ourselves in your world and get to know your organisation inside out so that during a merger, acquisition or sale, we won’t sit on the fence – we’ll give you a clear view of the risks and opportunities, and provide the advice you need to make each decision.
How can I make sure this transaction will happen?
Pick your advisers carefully and trust them. Our team have a wealth of experience working with businesses of all sizes from a variety of sectors, so we’ve seen all kinds of transactions –we’ll use that experience to make sure everything goes to plan.
How long will it take?
It’s hard to say how long a transaction might take, but we are experts in organising the parties early, agreeing strong timelines, generating momentum and, most importantly, keeping the deal going.
How much will it cost?
Each brief is different, with a multitude of variables, but we’ll always be open and honest about the costs before we start to work with you.
Whether you’re progressing a merger or acquisition, selling your business or looking to raise funds, we’ve seen it all, both in the UK and internationally. As one of the largest corporate law teams in the West Midlands and South West, our partners specialise in a wide range of sectors, working with businesses of every kind locally, nationally and globally. We’re not just corporate lawyers – we’re trusted advisers to our clients, and we’ve built up a vital support network for them that covers all aspects of their business by connecting them to funders and strategic opportunities.
