    "Great value for money. As hard hitting as the silver circle but without the terrifying hourly rates."

    In detail

    Our expertise covers the lifecycle of the business structure from set-up and management to implementing sometimes complex profit sharing and incentive arrangements, dispute resolution and exit strategies. We combine our in-depth knowledge of the partnerships structure with our commercial outlook to provide our clients with clear and innovative solutions.

    We advise on the drafting and amending of partnership agreements, including the admission and termination of members and corporate governance issues. We also have extensive expertise in guiding our clients through mergers, acquisitions and disposals.

    Our clients look to us for advice on partnership and employment law, tax, data protection, regulatory matters, and investment expertise.
