M&A, corporate finance, joint ventures and investments
Let us use our understanding of your business, the market context and the ever-changing regulatory backdrop to ensure the success of your transaction.
Our experienced, award-winning team handles transactions of all sizes, from small, strategic mandates to multi-billion-pound transactions.
We advise on public and private mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings, funds at Lloyd's, business transfers, renewal rights deals, joint ventures, investments, and investment management.
Our team can also help you form Lloyd's syndicates and Special Purpose Syndicates (SPS), manage Part VII transfers (RPC Consulting can provide independent experts), cross-border and SE mergers and reinsurance transactions.
Much of our work is international, using our own London, Hong Kong and Singapore offices, and calling upon our international best friend network of law firms to provide further local expertise where necessary. This helps us ensure we find the best lawyer for the job – whether RPC or a partner firm – keeping cost down and providing high quality advice and service.
