Over the years we have worked on a large number of transactions which have been referred
from firms of solicitors. These include business sales, fundraisings, corporate restructuring
advice and the commercial negotiation of joint venture arrangements.
Our work in such circumstances will normally involve research to identify suitable
counterparties; making approaches on behalf of clients to possible buyers, financiers
or joint venture partners; and assisting each client to arrive at a commercial agreement
with his preferred counterparty.
If possible, when agreement in principle appears to have been reached, we will prepare
a Terms Sheet for the client so that the parties can lay down the principles of the
deal in layman’s terms before the matter is put into the hands of solicitors. We
usually recommend that, if prepared by us, such a document should be referred to
you, the client’s legal adviser, for approval before presentation to the counterparty.
Once agreement as to commercial terms has been reached, the necessary legal work
to document and complete the deal can be passed back to your firm. We would aim to
ensure that the contents of the terms sheet are sufficiently comprehensive so that
the first drafts of the legal agreements will bear a high degree of congruence with
the parties’ wishes.
If you have a current or potential project on which we may be able to assist, then
