For law firms, accountants, doctors and other professionals, getting the right structure within the partnership or LLP is crucial for the effective management and operation of your business. Whether setting up, investing into an established firm or moving to a new role, we offer experience and expertise to support you. We are expert at restructuring professional firms to enable succession planning and develop improved management processes and decision making.

Company, Commercial and M&A

We are involved in a dozen mergers and acquisitions each year, mainly for law firm clients. We act for both buyers and sellers and appreciate what is needed to on each side. 

Every business needs contracts drafting and advice on the terms which are appropriate. We are regularly consulted by other law firms seeking to understand what they should and should not be agreeing to.

Special Projects and Consultancy

From time to time every management team needs some support and perhaps someone at arm’s length to guide them and their firms to a successful conclusion. We have various examples of special projects and consultancy work.
