OUR SERVICES for businesses

We support ambitious, often owner managed businesses, investors and entrepreneurs in building, operating and scaling enterprises from early stage right through to exit, and enhancing and growing their capital.

We take the time to understand our clients’ businesses and strategies, ensuring that our advice is always commercially relevant and supports their overarching objectives. It is our aim to be considered part of the in-house team and work alongside our clients in partnership to realise their ambitions.

At what stage is your business?

There are seven stages to the growth cycle of a business. Each has its own challenges and opportunities, which our firm is uniquely placed to help you navigate.

Spotlight on...

As the needs of multi-generational and international families evolve, the family office becomes an increasingly important vehicle when it comes to protecting significant wealth whilst fulfilling business and philanthropic aims. Each family office is unique in terms of culture, structure and scope; they reflect the distinct values and interests of the families they are associated with. Due to this diversity, each family office will encounter its own legal, business and personal challenges. It is therefore crucial to work with a team of trusted advisers with the ability to provide you with pragmatic and truly bespoke advice. We advise in relation to the full scope of personal and commercial assets, supporting our clients in creating an enduring legacy for themselves and their families.

Our multi-disciplinary Private equity team has a deep knowledge of the marketplace, a sector focused approach and extensive experience on both sides of transactions. Having worked alongside investors and against many prominent investment funds, we understand that the different parties can often have competing drivers. The company wants to ensure that the obligations attached to the financial investment do not interfere with how the business is run whilst the investors are focused on achieving their projected returns within certain timeframes. Our team has the expertise to balance these drivers, coming up with creative, commercial solutions which fulfil the objectives of all involved.

Luxury Brands

The luxury goods market is growing rapidly with premium brands in areas such as perfumes, apparel, accessories and boutique alcohols seeing strong growth and consistently defying market down-turns. It is little surprise that at the highest end of the retail market new luxury brands are emerging to challenge established brands’ dominance and status quo. Utilising technology to redefine how they engage and interact with customers, and with the agility to evolve and adapt to market trends, these brands, both global and smaller independent enterprises, are more popular than ever.

Our multi-disciplinary team has considerable experience advising luxury brands based in the UK and internationally on all aspects of their business affairs. This may cover establishing and protecting intellectual property rights, restructuring the business, drawing up commercial agreements, tackling employment issues, dealing with property transactions or resolving any disputes which may arise.
