The Cleaver Fulton Rankin corporate & commercial team is one of the most widely recognised in the market and is a leader in its field. The team is best known for its technical excellence combined with its approachable and ‘easy to deal with’ nature. We advise on a full range of complex corporate and commercial matters including M&A, private equity investment, joint ventures and shareholder agreements, corporate governance, restructuring and a wide variety of commercial agreements including R & D collaboration, agency, distribution, supplier contracts and reseller agreements. 

The team has nearly doubled in size over the last two years and is led by Director Hilary Griffith who has almost 20 years’ experience in all aspects of corporate and commercial law and has been described as a “genuine business leader in Belfast”. The team supported by experts across a full range of specialisms provides advice to local and international clients, private equity providers, public bodies and international law firms.

The team is fully integrated into the local business community: For example, Director Hilary Griffith sits as a member on the council for Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce; and Associate Solicitor, Kathryn Laverty is a committee member of the Company Commercial Lawyers Group of NI.
