Our specialist Corporate Team has particular expertise providing legal advice to investors and management teams looking to take their business to the next stage in the business life cycle. As well as a wealth of experience advising existing shareholders looking to sell to a management team and the particular characteristics of such transactions.

In addition to advice on negotiating a profitable and tax-efficient corporate deal, we act as an intermediary between the business and the private equity fund, in both management buyouts (MBOs) or management buy-ins (MBIs).

We can help you achieve the funding goals for your business and are specialists in private equity and venture capital investment work.

Thanks to our depth of understanding and experience, Geldards can quickly get to grips with the precise circumstances surrounding your transaction and we tailor our service to plan, co-ordinate and structure the deal to bring you the rewards you deserve.

We draw on the expertise of lawyers in other teams to offer full-service legal advice in a range of complementary disciplines to help better plan for the future of your business.

Our specialist team advises on corporate tax, employment, pensions and property as well as the main transaction documents such as investment/shareholder agreements, articles and sale and purchase agreements.
