One client describes the team as having a “wide range of specialist lawyers, with significant support resources, allowing them to tailor their advice to suit a range of business requirements.”
The practice has significant expertise in the automotive, technology, healthcare, marine, built environment, recruitment and professional services sectors. Michael Moore and Crispin Dick jointly lead the practice, while Claire McCauley specialises in non-transactional work including solvent restructurings and group reorganisations. Sources have the following to say about the team they “quickly learned about the client, the transaction and the key objectives – they listen“; they have a “strong breadth of talent and experience ensures your transaction is covered from all angles”; they are “warm, genuine and colourful characters make them fun to be around“; whilst another says “the team I was dealing with showed a caring professional approach that was always commercial. They worked openly with our financial advisers and were happy to have their views altered or moderated by good arguments. The team communicated very clearly about their specialities and responsibilities and seemed to stay well briefed so that when we made contact we got answers quickly without any buck passing“.
