Corporate & Commercial

The Corporate team at Davidson McDonnell provides specialist corporate and commercial advice to local and international clients.

Our local clients are typically owner managed businesses (run by families or entrepreneurs) and high growth potential companies with global scalability. Our international clients are often seeking to enter the Northern Ireland or UK markets by acquisition or direct investment.

Building enduring client relationships is very important to us. We work collaboratively and creatively with our clients to understand their commercial needs, allowing us to provide time- and cost-effective legal solutions. Our practice is client-focused and our aim, in all cases, is to deliver an exceptional client experience.

Our lawyers have over 25 years combined experience of UK and international corporate transactions, and have been recognized in leading industry directories such as Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 for their expertise and service levels.

Our main areas of focus in Northern Ireland and the UK are:

• Private equity and venture capital funding
• Mergers, acquisitions and disposals
• Shareholder agreements, joint ventures and other partnership arrangements
• Corporate reorganizations and restructurings
• Commercial agreements
• Succession planning structures for family businesses
