Corporate Services - Cracknell Law

Be sale ready

We are exit specialists and thrive on seeing our clients realise their efforts and investment, which is why everything we do is with one eye on the day you might receive that “too good to refuse” offer.

Providing focus

We work closely between our Corporate, Commercial and Employment teams so that you can focus your efforts on what you are best at doing – running your business.

Setting Strong Foundations

We love working with entrepreneurs, owner-managed and privately owned businesses. That’s because we aren’t just lawyers, we are business people and we enjoy doing both. Our experience dealing with successful businesses that are the subject of investment or sale means that we understand what makes the best possible foundations. We invest time getting to know you, understanding how your business works and learning about your aspirations.

We think this means we can do the best possible job for you as your business continues to grow. In addition, if you opt for our ‘Sale Ready’ retainer model, this means that you can get all the benefits of having an in-house lawyer much sooner than is usually possible. Our corporate services team typically get involved with:

  • Setting up and initial structuring
  • Shareholder arrangements
  • Employee incentivisation
  • Early stage fundraising


Scaling Up

We love to watch our clients grow into leaders in their sectors. That’s because we see ourselves as partners and prefer to structure our relationships with our clients so that we have time to get to know them as they expand and so that they should never have to think twice before getting in touch with us.

This is a busy but exciting time for your business and we can help ensure that everyone and everything is pushing in the right direction. Businesses that are expanding usually benefit from our assistance in the following areas:

  • Expansion and further investment
  • Corporate governance, company secretarial, compliance and advisory
  • Restructuring and reorganisations
  • Joint ventures and strategic partnerships

Exit on Your Terms

We love celebrating with our clients when they achieve a successful acquisition or exit. That’s because it’s the culmination of an exciting journey together and we feel privileged to have travelled it with you.

We are experts in corporate transactions. We undertake due diligence in such a way that you can use it operationally during the bedding-in phase to realise the value of an acquisition. We work with you in the run up to a potential exit to ensure that your business is ready for sale, therefore maximising the chances of success and of realising the best possible price. Our Corporate team undertake mergers & acquisitions projects including:

  • Management buy-outs and buy-ins
  • Buy-side M&A
  • Sell-side M&A
  • AIM listings

Cracknell Law came highly recommended to me and it easy to see why. As the owner of a specialist business I would always advocate using a company who knows their field inside and out and Cracknell Law certainly exceeded our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to other business owners. Thank you again.
