Corporate

Our highly regarded and experienced team advises on M&A transactions as well as the full breadth of other corporate matters.

Overview

The Corporate team at FSP provides a wide variety of legal assistance to companies, partnerships, entrepreneurs, investors and individuals. Such assistance can vary from a simple quick sense check on a proposition to the need for more substantial legal advice and when providing such assistance the team always ensures this is done in a cost-effective and commercial way.

The team focuses on building long-standing relationships with clients because having such relationships enables us to understand a client’s business and priorities ensuring the team can provide bespoke advice and give the solution which is right for each individual business.

The team has been commended for offering advice “in a very pragmatic and down-to-earth way” and for being “very commercial” and “not interested in point scoring” and this approach is a core part of the FSP corporate team’s ethos.

Our team members have a wealth of experience on all matters which arise through the lifecycle of a business and provide high quality, constructive advice to clients whilst remaining alert to opportunities where they can add value, whether that be through making introductions, sharing developments that may be of interest to a client or otherwise.

Featured experience

The team is highly experienced in advising on corporate transactions from large, complex deals involving multiple legal jurisdictions to sales of SME’s to trade purchases or management buy-outs. The team advises businesses across many different sectors and our news & insights page/deal releases below gives an overview of the wide variety of deals the team has been involved in. On each transaction we create bespoke multi-disciplinary teams calling on experts from other departments in the firm including commercial property, tax, employment and intellectual property to ensure that the transaction progresses quickly and efficiently with support from the right specialists.

We understand that successfully developing or restructuring your business is just as important as exiting and the team uses its legal experience to provide practical commercial solutions each step of the way so that clients can exploit business opportunities and manage risk successfully at such times.
