We act for alternative investment funds, their managers and fast-growing companies.
We think that for the next fifty years the world will be a volatile place in which to do business and that the businesses that prosper will be those which demonstrate to their market that they are specialists, with the right policies and the right attitudes.
We are corporate lawyers, tax lawyers and regulatory lawyers; and all of us are all of these things. This is a rare combination, as broad as it is deep, and it makes us who we are, a hard working ‘can do’ law firm with a commercial understanding of the business of our clients and the ambition for them to succeed, so that we may too.
We are specialists. So are you.
