Helping established owner-managed and family businesses take the next step

Owner-managed and family businesses can range from one person start-ups to highly evolved and dynamic multinational companies. What they have in common is that ultimate control rests with one or a few key owners, who often want their business to reflect their values and vision.

Your business may already be well-established, yet making the right decisions to consolidate that progress or take it to the next level often requires a wider perspective from a fresh set of experts – this is where we come in.

We recognise the challenges that are presented to committed business owners and will help you overcome them by understanding your values and vision, helping you make great things happen. Our multi-disciplinary team’s insights span many sectors, with a particular specialism in the tech, life sciences, manufacturing and engineering sectors.

This means we can help you identify and capitalise on opportunities early on, co-ordinate parallel legal workstreams involved in progressing your business plans and provide dynamic, practical support. We offer comprehensive and cross-border assistance, including:

  • Business acquisition or sale
  • Business restructuring and recovery
  • Succession and estate planning, including wills and wealth preservation
  • Ownership governance for family businesses
  • Trust creation and administration
  • Shareholder relations and commercial disputes
  • Debt funding and refinancing
