Corporate Transactions

Your solicitor plays a vital role in negotiating the terms when you undertake any corporate transaction, so hiring a corporate lawyer with the skill and tenacity to get you the best deal is imperative.

Gaby Hardwicke’s corporate transactional lawyers have a wealth of experience in leading negotiations. We’re renowned for our ability to get the job done quickly, efficiently and on our client’s terms. In fact, we have yet to be involved in a deal, of any size, where we have not made or saved our client many times our fee.

We deliver a ‘partner-led’ corporate law service but will staff and structure it according to your needs, objectives and the size to ensure you receive best possible value.

Corporate transactions are complex and involved and we won’t pretend they’re not. It’s our job to simplify the complexities, guide you through the process and minimise the fuss, while ensuring you get the most from your purchase or sale.
