Legal 500 – 2022 Edition

Paris Smith LLP’s combined corporate, commercial and finance practice has been building on its sell-side transactional reputation with Hampshire SMEs by handling an increasing number of acquisitions, IPOs and management buyouts, often with an international aspect. The firm has also adivsed on a number of solvent restructurings over the course of the pandemic. Southampton-based Michael Moore manages the firm’s corporate and private equity teams, and in recent months has been a key figure for distressed M&A transactions. Crispin Dick heads up the commercial team from the Winchester office, while Jonathon Roy jointly runs the firm’s private equity practice alongside Moore. Richard Atcherley attracts substantial work in the SME space, increasingly from international companies. Arezou Rezai is recommended for her work on a broad range of key corporate transactions.

Sources say:

  • “Good knowledge and ability to explain key issues succinctly”
  • “Calm, approachable manner and able to deal with matters in a timely fashion”
