Corporate solicitors provide legal advice to companies on transactions affecting their business activities, including internal administrative operations, corporate restructuring, the buying and selling of businesses and assets, and financing of these business activities.

Their role is to manage and oversee corporate transactions, ensuring compliance with legal regulations and the smooth execution of deals. The M&A process typically includes initial deal structuring advice, drafting, and negotiating legal documents, conducting due diligence, and advising clients on strategic decisions throughout the transaction.

Corporate M&A lawyers handle various transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, private equity transactions, management buyouts and corporate restructurings. In addition to M&A transactions, corporate lawyers can also deal with corporate governance, work, drafting shareholder agreements, advising company directors, and other general corporate advisory work.

Teamwork and project management skills are further requisite skills, as M&A projects also often involve working with and managing colleagues from different teams - such as property, commercial and employment law teams.
