Strategic transactions


Our senior lawyers are experienced negotiators of commercial contracts.  By understanding the commercial context to a deal, we bring our legal analysis to bear to secure our clients’ business objectives.

Clients seek us out to support them on major transactions because we understand their sector and the regulatory context. That expertise means we can reduce costs and speed up negotiations by avoiding the need for specialist advice to be layered on top of commercial legal work.

Our understanding of the regulatory context can give our clients a vital edge in commercial negotiations, particularly where a deal will face scrutiny by one or more agencies. When the deal is done, we are experienced at explaining complex transactions to regulators, and anticipating their concerns. We also forecast how regulation is likely to change during the life of the contract, and design contracts that ensure our clients can fairly and appropriately manage regulatory risk.
