We have a large team of barristers with expertise in all stages of a company’s lifecycle – from creation to dissolution – including corporate disputes, M&A, finance, corporate governance, regulation and restructuring.
We have experience at all levels, from QCs to newly qualified juniors. This means we can offer a comprehensive service, whether you need a multi-counsel team for a large scale, cross-jurisdictional case, or an expert’s advice on a discrete point of law.
We are experienced in litigation and advisory matters involving companies of all sizes, ranging from major multinationals to smaller startups. Many of our cases are international in scope.
Our expertise includes all aspects of company law, including shareholder disputes, unfair prejudice petitions, derivative claims, claims relating to directors’ duties, asset recovery, shares, company resolutions, maintenance of capital and reductions, dividends, corporate transactions, joint ventures, finance, corporate reconstructions, loan capital and banking securities, schemes of arrangement and reductions of capital, and insurance schemes and capital markets, and other matters arising under the Companies Act 2006.
We also cover all aspects of corporate insolvency law, including administrations, liquidations, receiverships and company voluntary arrangements. We have substantial experience in claims arising in these areas including claims for the adjustment of prior transactions, misfeasance proceedings, wrongful and fraudulent trading, tracing and recovery of corporate assets, the appointment of provisional liquidators, private examinations, winding-up petitions, applications for rescission, validation orders, remuneration applications and disqualification proceedings. Several of our members have been appointed to the Attorney General’s panels and the Secretary of State’s panel for directors’ disqualification matters.
