Corporate

Hill Dickinson’s corporate lawyers offer a high-quality combination of technical expertise, commercial acumen and excellent client service.

With a strong City practice and an experienced national network, we specialise in advising a range of clients, from large listed companies to smaller start-up businesses on the full range of transactions – both domestic and cross-border. Our advice is distinctly commercial, with our lawyers receiving ongoing training in core business skills through the Hill Dickinson Business School and secondments in industry.

The team, largely comprising lawyers from the City and national firms, has grown rapidly over the last 12 months. We work in small teams, providing close access to our partners on transactions. We believe we offer an innovative approach to managing client relationships and fee arrangements, which sets us apart from many of our larger competitors. We are also spearheading a radically different approach to due diligence in Intelligentsia, in order to be able to offer our clients a timely, relevant and cost effective service, which adds real value to the acquisition process.

Our clients value the quality of our people, our market knowledge and our commitment to achieving success for them. We always aim to exceed their expectations.
