    Our experience

    Our lawyers have the legal skills, the enthusiasm, and the pro-active mindset to handle the smallest to the largest and most complex deals. We consistently gain recognition from clients and the corporate finance industry for the quality of service we provide, the depth of our expertise and our practical, easy to deal with approach.

    We try to get under the skin of our clients’ business, to really understand what it is that they want to achieve, both now and in the longer term. By doing this we can approach our role as advisers from our clients’ perspective, concentrating our resources on achieving the results that are important to our clients.

    Our team has strong relationships with the leading accountants, corporate finance advisers, and banks regionally and is appointed to the legal panels of a number of institutional lenders. Our legal expertise assists clients of a range of types and sizes from owner-managed businesses to multi-national corporations. We see our owner managed business client base as vital as it represents the corporate strength in the South East regional economy (outside London).

    The team is ranked in the prestigious Chambers UK: A Client’s Guide to the UK Legal Profession directory, with James Bullock and Matthew Simmonds individually recommended as leaders in their field.

    Brachers is a member of the Kent Corporate Finance Alliance, an independent network of specialist corporate finance professional advisers.
