At heart, though, what sets us apart isn’t just our expertise, it’s our relationships. Longstanding relationships with quoted clients and intermediaries mean we are called on daily by boards of PLCs to advise directors and corporate financers on their legal and regulatory obligations.

We also specialise in advising funds and institutional clients on regulatory matters as well as equity lines of credit and other complex structured equity instruments.

Meanwhile, our many contacts and relationships among nominated advisers, brokers, accountants and other professional advisers, leave us ideally placed to add value to our clients’ equity capital markets transactions, over and above the legal services we provide.
