I work on merger and acquisition transactions as well as equity investment by business angels, venture capital funds and trade investors. Other corporate transactions include re-organisations, investment agreements and specialist articles of association.
I work with clients on share incentivisation schemes such as EMI options.
For many years I have also worked on banking transactions for borrowers and lenders, including lending to property and general trading businesses for project specific or general growth purposes as well as funding for management buy-outs, refinancing and subordination arrangements.
I have to say Amanda is hands down the best corporate lawyer I have ever worked with. She is responsive, commercial, helps guide us in our business development with solid advice and knows exactly what we want from purchasing a business. We hardly need to give any instruction other than “crack on” and she and her team deliver – every time. We are a PE backed, acquisitive, business so we are demanding and demonstrative. She never flinches, takes in her stride and is the epitome of professionalism.

These were key acquisitions for us and enhance the portfolio of services we can now offer to a wide range of sectors. Amanda and the team at Paris Smith became an integral part of our deal team and provided great commercial, practical and legal advice within tight timeframes. We would recommend the team whole heartedly.
