Financial Services and Private Equity
Highest calibre advice on commercial and private equity matters
As experts in assisting clients in the corporate and commercial sector, both locally and in the international market, we can provide you with sector specific pragmatic advice.
Clients benefit from our comprehensive experience having acted for every type of financial instruction and equity houses across all corporate and commercial disciplines. With many of our lawyers having worked in industry and financial services as in-house counsel, our team also brings a commercial practicality to the advice we give.
Our experience extends beyond transactional work and we also look after our clients through implementation and then in every stage of the business’s lifecycle.
