Corporate & banking

Corporate & Banking

Our Corporate practice comprises all the areas you would expect of a national firm - banking & finance, corporate, restructuring and insolvency, and tax. We have more than 70 partners and legal advisers in seven locations.

All of our teams are led by partners widely regarded as leaders in their fields and who are regularly recommended by clients and intermediaries. Many of our lawyers have joined us from other national and City firms, attracted by the range and quality of work we do and the friendly and collegiate atmosphere across our locations.

Our client list includes some of the largest businesses in the UK, some of the UK's major banks and financial institutions, insolvency practitioners and company directors as well as small local companies. All of them benefit from our practical and commercial approach to the law and the best possible client service.

Our national banking and finance team advises on a range of financing transactions across a wide variety of sectors, often with a multi-jurisdictional element.

Our corporate team has advised public and private companies, management teams, investors and debt providers both by way of transactional support and on all aspects of corporate life.

It specialises in corporate and partnership structures, equity capital markets, group and capital restructuring, corporate governance and compliance, joint ventures, MBOs/MBIs, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture and development capital.

The restructuring and insolvency group provides advice to insolvency practitioners, banks and other asset based lenders, as well as to company directors and businesses with financial difficulties. It deals with both contentious and non-contentious insolvency issues.

When you join us, you can expect support from our dedicated team of professional support lawyers. We care about your professional development and offer a full spectrum of technical and other training at each step of your career.
