What we do

We provide independent corporate finance advice to private companies and their owners.  If capital is required to either develop the business or release some of the value to the owner, we have our own financial resources to fund this ourselves.

Our services include advising on raising funds for business development, equity release or acquisitions; the disposal of part or all the business; shareholding re-organisations and corporate restructuring; refinancing and profit improvement. 


We have invested in, and helped develop and expand, numerous businesses in the health, beauty and well-being sectors, so can provide hands on practical and strategic help, not just financial assistance.

Each member of our team has not only acted on numerous transactions in private practice as a solicitor or corporate financier,  but has also experienced transactions as the client.
