Overview

We act for a diverse range of international and local organisations and represent more LSE-listed clients than any other offshore law firm (Corporate Advisers Rankings Guide).

Our lawyers are skilled at creating new structures for commercial growth, advising on public and private mergers and acquisitions and completing exchange-based listings, as well as advising boards and shareholders.

The scale of our corporate practice enables us to structure the team according to our role, whether we are providing focused advice directly to our clients or acting in partnership with onshore advisers on complex international transactions. We match the level of resource to your requirements, expectations and deadlines, giving you the commercial agility to achieve your objectives.
