Corporate & Private Equity

Our highly experienced team of corporate and private equity lawyers work with businesses of all sizes, across all sectors, on all types of transactional and general corporate advisory work.

M&A, private equity, venture capital and corporate advisory are at the heart of what we do.

Our approach is to work collaboratively with our clients to really understand your business and complete their transactions in an efficient way and on time. Our team focuses on delivering technical excellence in a commercial and pragmatic way, and will always give opinions, not just options.

With our international network of lawyers, we regularly manage and advise on cross-border and multi-jurisdictional projects. We also work seamlessly with our sector specialists ensuring all bases are covered.

In addition to transactional work, we regularly provide corporate advisory services. So, if a shareholders’ agreement, governance advice or company secretarial support is needed, or a group restructure or joint venture is planned, we can help.

  • Terrafend is a fast growing, venture capital backed sustainability company. Consequently, many of our transactions are diverse in nature and have tight execution timetables. In Sarah, we found the ideal legal counsel to guide and support our business growth. She has a strong understanding of corporate finance, great attention to detail and an innovative and pragmatic thought process – imperative for early stage businesses who have to ‘get things done’, without compromise and to the highest possible professional standards.

  • I can’t recommend Capital Law enough if you are selling equity in your business. The team led by Gareth Williams-Davies were thoroughly professional and were able to offer a commercially balanced view on all aspects of the transaction. The breadth of skills within Capital Law allowed Gareth to bring in specialist colleagues when required and I could not have been represented better. Gareth’s calm and experienced tone was a great advantage during some of the trickier negotiations and he was a significant factor in completing the transaction.
