Corporate advice and expertise from Spearing Waite

The corporate team at Spearing Waite offers strength through its diversity and breadth of expertise, much of which was gained in City, national and international law firms. We offer a genuinely partner-led service, which means you will always have direct contact with a partner who is fully involved with your transaction.

Our approach is underpinned by a shared sense of purpose, spirit and culture; we understand that our clients want a successful outcome, regular and proactive communications, together with excellent deal management.

Flexibility is also key, and we work in a way to suit each client; the nature of our firm means we are able to offer a more entrepreneurial, agile approach that may be lost in the large law firms.

At the outset of every instruction we sit down and talk to the client to understand their aspirations – it helps us to understand what makes the business tick and to clarify the client’s objectives. Read more below about the specialist areas covered by the Spearing Waite corporate team.
