Corporate & Commercial

Navigating the modern global business environment to take advantage of opportunities as they arise, and avoid legal and regulatory pitfalls, is a challenge for any entrepreneur, business or corporation.

As commercially minded lawyers committed to providing a top quality, cost-effective service we understand those challenges and, more importantly, seek to turn them into opportunities. We are known for not sitting on the fence and for providing plain-spoken, direct advice. We take a broad view of our clients' interests. As well as tackling the legal risks, we work hard to help clients identify and manage key commercial and regulatory issues to get the deal done or the transaction over the line - on time, every time.

With a depth of multi-jurisdictional experience our offices in BVI, Cayman, Guernsey, Jersey, London and Singapore we ensure that advice is provided in the context of other key global offshore centres and with a knowledge of the bigger, global picture.

Our clients appreciate our pro-active attitude to providing sensible user-friendly advice, our accuracy and honesty in our approach to pricing matters, and our senior level involvement in all matters to ensure smooth progress and client satisfaction. In an increasingly complex, competitive and more tightly regulated market, we'll make sure your business or commercial venture reaches its full potential.

"It's a very good team. There's depth there which can be important - if somebody happens to be away there's enough to carry it on. The change from one person to another is imperceptible."
