Corporate finance

Securing finance is essential to the growth of your business, and we are delighted to be part of the process. A particular strength of our global team is in advising directors, shareholders and potential investors on the rules in different jurisdictions.

Whether you are a tech start-up looking for seed funding, a growing company ready for an IPO, a new owner considering a management buyout or a multinational looking to cut down on your tax bill, we have the financial experience to find a solution.

Where we can be of particular assistance is in making you aware of the requirements of the different jurisdictions in which you operate. These include rules on board constitution and operation, compliance with Stock Exchange or UK Listing Authority rules, money-laundering, financial services regulation and communication with investors. Failure to take account of these issues when structuring and running your business can result in personal liability for officers and boards of directors.


We work with directors of public and private companies, and their shareholders or potential investors. We also advise investment banks, corporate financeadvisors, brokers and investment advisors on the interpretation of UK Listing Authority rules, the AIM rules, US securities laws and the rules of various US securities exchanges.

With a multinational team, many of whom are qualified in more than one jurisdiction, we are able to help international companies understand how international regimes compare with their domestic requirements. For example, we have guided a number of international companies quoted in London on the application of the relevant stock exchange rules, highlighting how they compare with the client’s local corporate governance obligations. We also have extensive experience advising company officers and directors on US corporate governance requirements.
