Led by partner Paul Hughes, our team of corporate solicitors is one of the most knowledgeable in the North East.

The team have expertise in all areas of corporate law, including company sales and acquisitions, corporate finance, flotations, share options, private equity investment, complex turnarounds, reorganisations and restructures, mergers, management buy-outs and buy-ins, as well as corporate rescues of distressed businesses.

We act on transactions of all sizes ranging from the acquisition and disposal of small to medium sized owner managed businesses, right through to the sale and purchase of high value private and quoted companies. Building bespoke, partner-led teams for each deal and drawing on the expertise of specialist solicitors in our real estate, employment law, commercial services, and dispute resolution teams, we are able to provide integrated business advice ensuring each transaction runs smoothly.

Our corporate team also advises on turnaround and insolvency and carries out a wide range of contentious and non-contentious corporate insolvency work, acting for insolvency practitioners, banks, other financial institutions, company directors and shareholders.
