Services

Corporate

Trust is an essential part of any business deal, and it is something we have placed at the heart of our business relationships for many years. Still focussed on our Black Country heartland, we have experience in handling a wide range of matters across the West Midlands, nationally and internationally. The team continues to assist businesses of all shapes and sizes from start-ups to corporates embarking upon multi-million pound cross-border transactions.

Our expertise is a given, but we want to be more than a third party adviser. We want you to see us as an extension of your business, working in partnership to add value. With that in mind we aim to get to know you, talk your language and to be available 24/7 should the need arise.

We hope our credentials speak for themselves and if awards count for anything we have a pretty good track record over recent years: Corporate Law Firm of the Year at the Midlands Dealmakers Awards in 2013 and shortlisted in the following three years. Coming as a result of nominations made by the Midlands professional and business communities, it is a record of which we are particularly proud.

For further information please call 0345 111 5050 or email us.
