The Corporate team (which is part of the CMI division) consists of 11 partners, 7 Associates, 1 trainee, 1 practice development lawyer and a high quality secretarial and word processing support team.
The range of work we carry out includes all aspects of corporate finance from early investment to exit transactions, as well as other corporate work (both transactional and non-transactional) and tax advice.
Our clients are interesting and diverse and range from founders and owner-managed entrepreneurial businesses to companies listed in the UK and overseas.
It includes the persons and funds who invest in these businesses, and banks who work on exit transactions.
We act for many cutting edge tech businesses, in areas including fintech and medtech among others, and high-profile investors inside and outside the UK.
We also act for advertising agencies and leading marketing communications networks, and clients in other sectors including healthcare, media, financial services, professional partnerships, music and fashion, sports, retailers and restaurants.
Each associate is allocated a Career Development Partner from amongst the division’s partners, who will have general responsibility for development of the associate.
All members of our team are given the opportunity to help grow our business and participate fully in our business development initiatives which may range from a variety of sector-based events, to writing in industry journals and presenting at seminars.
We are keen that our associates (immediately following qualification) play an active role in this aspect of our business, in particular in respect of tech companies and venture capital investment, and they are encouraged to contribute with their own ideas and initiatives.
All associates have a business development plan : we see this as a commitment of the firm to support these activities (even if comparatively minor), rather than a specific performance measurement rubric.
