We are the ‘go to’ advisor on complex ABS and MDP applications
We have acted as sole advisor on some of the most high profile ABS applications to date. We have acted for quoted companies, online businesses, complex corporate groups and “Big 4” Accountants. Of particular note is our international experience, and our position as expert advisor to MDPs.
We have an unrivalled knowledge of the application process and ease the application process for even the most complex of applications.
We understand legal services businesses.
The legal services sector has changed, as have the regulatory constraints. We work with our clients on business strategy, and offer business consultancy services to help them thrive and maximise opportunities now available to law firms.
“Pretty unique in her blending of business desires with regulatory compliance and process knowledge.” (Chambers UK 2016)
We work closely with our regulators
