This wealth of experience in business legal advice allows us to call on a broad range of practical expertise from within our specialist corporate teams in all types of corporate transactions, including mergers, acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, public market work – particularly on the AIM and NEX Growth Markets – debt  and equity financings and reorganisations.

Methods of funding businesses and transactions evolve and change, but whether funding involves bank debt, receivables or other asset financing, private equity or venture capital funding our experts will be able to advise with authority.
