Equipping you for the future

We are delighted to be supporting the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards – with an office in the heart of Silicon Fen, we’re ideally situated to meet the needs of this thriving scientific, biotech and robotics community and SMEs are the lifeblood of that community.

Our standing as the second busiest M&A legal advisers in the region, according to Experian, is testament to our corporate expertise.

With lawyers specialising in corporate deal making, commercial contracts and IP law, we advise and support both start-up entrepreneurs and leaders of growing businesses, as well as large firms.

Our clients want someone who is in their corner, whom they can trust to give them solid, reliable advice which takes them forward. We find solutions to overcome apparent obstacles and give you a simple action plan to get you where you want to be.

Our team combines understanding of the needs of early-stage tech companies and the needs of the investors they seek, giving us a crucial advantage in providing the seed round support which brings the two parties together.

Acting for pre-revenue firms looking for investment from angel investors, government funds and university commercialisation teams, we work both regionally and nationally. We also ensure that companies’ legal and investment documents are produced in a way that helps the company but also demonstrates to investors that their requirements will be met.

Our recent merger with Houlden Sweeney brings over 25 years’ experience of the local and regional property market into the range of services we can support you with, all of which are tailored to meet your particular needs.

Working with our Cambridge clients, we know that they like our firmwide approach which includes partner involvement on all matters and honesty at every level, especially concerning fees, which we agree up front.

Because we know that your business and personal lives are often intertwined, we offer a wide range of services for both individuals and businesses.

For individuals, we offer help and advice on family law, divorce law, residential conveyancing, wills, trusts and estate planning. Our Cambridge team also specialises in alternative dispute resolution and family mediation.

For organisations in the area, in addition to our corporate and commercial expertise, we offer employment, restructuring and insolvency and dispute resolution services.

As part of a Top 100 law firm, with nine offices across the UK, we can also call upon a range of sector-specific services for organisations, business leaders and individuals.

Our sector experts provide specialist advice nationally and are leaders in their field – in education, agriculture and rural affairs, finance and financial services, advanced manufacturing, construction and engineering, health and social care, defence, security and the forces.
