Our UK Corporate team comprises over 40 lawyers, and acted on more than 90 completed transactions in 2017 with an aggregate value of more than £1 billion.

We work closely with specialist colleagues in other teams who provide support on taxation, finance, compliance and regulatory, employment, pensions, litigation, real estate, competition, procurement and IT, and intellectual property aspects of transactions.

What we are known for 

Sector focus

We work domestically and internationally with a wide variety of businesses in diverse sectors. Clients include financial services businesses, technology groups, property companies, healthcare providers and investors, energy and natural resources companies and retailers. We immerse ourselves in the sectors in which we operate.

Broad coverage

Wherever the deal is, we can help to make it happen. Our UK Corporate team works from four of our offices: London (Fetter Lane and Minster), Bristol, Leeds and Manchester. For international projects, we are able to call on the support of a network of independent firms in the US, the rest of Europe, Asia and other key jurisdictions with which we have established relationships as well as the support of our international offices.

We are top-ranked for transactions up to £50m, but also routinely act on larger deals. Our purpose is to help our clients achieve the right outcome and to reach their full potential on their deals, whatever the size.
