People in business often say that lawyers get in the way. That is not what we do.
Our focus is to advise you on what you can do, not what you can’t do, and then to help you achieve it. Everything we do is informed by what will achieve the best outcome for you.
20 years on. Always looking forward.
When we announced the establishment of our firm 20 years ago, we had none of the things you would normally associate with a law firm. We had no premises. We had no name. We had no telephones, computers, or stationery. We had not spoken a word with any clients or other people about working with us.
However, we quickly got organised and focused on what really matters. Since then, we have achieved success. By that, we mean we have helped the businesses and people for whom, and with whom, we work to achieve their goals.
We attribute that success to the values that inspired our decision to set up a new law firm, and which continue to inform everything we do today, and everything we will do tomorrow.
We care about what our clients want to achieve and how they want to get there. To do that, we think deeply about matters, identify the right outcome or solution, set an agreed course, then implement it. We are a ‘can do’ firm – we go the extra mile. We really care about the businesses and people for whom we act. We are committed to working with you to achieve the value and the outcome that you seek.
Not just another law firm.
Technical know-how and legal expertise should be a given. The lawyers who will succeed in the future are the lawyers who really understand what their clients want and how to get there.

Mergers, Acquisitions & Commercial transactions
We recognise the need to provide clear and accurate commercial and taxation advice in relation to all aspects of mergers and acquisitions. We work with our clients at the outset to map out all of the issues that may need to be addressed throughout the whole transaction, rather than merely addressing problems as they arise. We look towards the future operation of your business.
Construction, engineering &
We work extensively in the construction and engineering industries. We understand the needs of a technical field. We cover the full range of services that businesses in the industry may require including drafting and reviewing contracts, assisting in tenders and negotiation, commercialising ideas and advising on management of claims.
commercial dispute Resolution, insurance & Insolvency
We understand that, in business, it is better to avoid a dispute than to win a dispute. Quick results are vital. Some types of business dealings have a high chance of leading to dispute. Some types of claims are more likely to be contentious. Clear advice and strategy up front can make a dispute less likely. We can help you to avoid, manage or resolve a problem.

We can advise on the implementation and tax consequences of significant or high-profile acquisitions and restructures, as well as on personal or corporate tax assessments.
