Taking a big picture approach.
Establishing a business, or being responsible for the running and growth of one, can be extremely rewarding and exciting, requiring commitment, passion and drive.
Successful entrepreneurs and business leaders thrive on the highs of their commercial and personal successes, and know to seek the support of trusted advisers when navigating more difficult times.
SMEs in particular may be more susceptible to the commercial challenges faced by all businesses, be they complications around funding, governance, supply chain or other aspects of the day-to-day running of the business. However, as a valuable and crucial part of the economy, they are also more adaptable and responsive to change. They have the ability to see opportunity and move quickly to capitalise upon it. To move your organisation forward, you should be working alongside a team with an in-depth awareness of your overarching commercial strategy and the expertise to provide you with innovative, proactive guidance.
Our Corporate team advises entrepreneurs, owner-managed and family owned businesses and investors based in the UK and internationally on all aspects of their business affairs. Getting to know you as the client is crucial to the work we do. We take a big picture approach, understanding your commercial interests far wider than the instruction itself so we can provide you with uniquely tailored advice. We embed ourselves seamlessly into your team, creating a strong and enduring business partnership.
With our clear understanding of your long term strategy and objectives, we can work with you closely throughout the life cycle of your business, planning and supporting growth from inception, through domestic or international expansion, mergers and acquisitions, right through to exit. We advise ambitious individuals and businesses and pride ourselves on constantly striving to find new and creative strategies to help our clients achieve the best possible results.
Owner-managers of businesses have the additional challenge of balancing the requirements of the business with their personal and family priorities, and it can be difficult not to let one impact the other. It is possible for relationship breakdowns and family conflicts to affect your business, if not managed properly. When you are faced with difficult personal situations, we draw on the expertise of our Private Wealth colleagues to help ensure both your business and personal life move forward in the right direction.

What is IR35?
IR35 was introduced by the Government to counter perceived tax avoidance where individuals were providing their services through an intermediary, such as a personal service company. From 6 April 2020 these rules expand to the private sector and, if IR35 applies, there can be significant tax consequences.
