Business Owners & Entrepreneurs

We understand entrepreneurs and the markets in which they operate. Our lawyers use their expertise and network of leading advisers to provide bespoke solutions to clients seeking to protect and develop their wealth. We assist clients to grow, protect and distribute wealth and to safeguard assets for future generations.

Our advice often requires looking at all eventualities for businesses and the individuals and families behind them. We are experienced experts with the specialist knowledge to protect your business and your family.

Whether you require tax, legal, financial or investment advice, we are well placed to advise you and your business in a tailored fashion that considers your commercial and personal priorities and objectives.

We can work with you to review the ownership structure of your personal and business assets. Our lawyers often assist with reorganisations and restructurings to ensure our clients, their businesses and their families are well positioned for the future. This can include tax efficency, “mission locks” and “golden shares”.

Many of our clients have multiple business interests across various jurisdictions. By understanding your businesses, we help you to make the right business decisions to achieve your commercial, social and personal objectives.

Our firm has grown alongside many of our entrepreneurial client founders and executives, and our lawyers are often viewed by our clients as an extension of their business and long term trusted advisers to executives and their families.

We regularly advise on business sales and exits. Our focus is always on ensuring that you secure the best possible deal, tax efficiently and with the correct structuring in place to ensure that you can move forward with the flexibility you require.


We advise on:
  • corporate and commercial transactions
  • pre-seed investments
  • further funding rounds
  • acquisitions and disposals
  • exit strategies
  • transactional support
  • employment law advice
  • business structures
  • employee incentive arrangements
