Corporate Finance & Mergers and Acquisitions

The corporate division at Greenaway Scott are experienced business lawyers and undertake all client corporate finance transactional work and projects.  Our expertise lies primarily within the life science, healthcare, IT and technology sectors.

The team advise a full range of businesses, from start-up business to PLCs.  The team have combined commercial intuition and excellent market knowledge enabling us to deliver pro-active, efficient advice on all aspects of UK and cross-border advisory work. We advise our clients on the full range of corporate transactional projects including mergers and acquisitions, management buy-ins and buy-outs, private equity investments, deal negotiations, auction sales, restructuring, de-mergers, project management, public to private takeovers,  AIM and LSE advisory and administration, schemes of arrangement and shareholder agreements.

The individuals in the corporate team provide clients with business as well as legal advice by advising on corporate strategy, structures and models to ensure clients maximise their capital value, business opportunities and scope.

We also offer our services at board level, providing advice in the role of non-executive directors. Members of the team are non-executive board members for a number of clients and attend and actively contribute at their monthly board meetings. 

In addition to non-executive director services, the corporate team also chair and oversee “facilitated management days” for clients, providing in-house sector specific legal and business training at board and management level.

We understand that SME businesses often struggle to obtain initial capital to cover start-up and legal costs. The team work with businesses to develop specific corporate strategies and will exchange our fees for an equity stake in the client business to mitigate the client’s cash flow burden.

As a direct result of the way we operate, the corporate team at Greenaway Scott are engaged and brought in to a business at a much earlier stage than what is usually common practice in corporate transactions. This strategy allows the team to become far more interactive with client businesses and understand its business processes and expectations. 

The team are primarily focussed on delivering sharp and effective business and legal advice, adding value and achieving the expectations with each client in each and every aspect.
