Corporate law and M&A

We’re everywhere you need us
Around the world or around the corner, Baker Tilly is ready to help.

First the advice, then the results

Managing global regulatory risks demands up-to-the-minute legal advice across the entire lifecycle of your business. You also need ongoing expertise and practical advice to inform your day-to-day operations.

Through close contact with our teams across financial, compliance and asset management needs, you’ll always be ready to make the smartest decisions for your future. This is true whether that advice involves private equity and international M&A transactions or project-related counsel in new territories.

The groundwork for a stable corporate environment and reduced uncertainty is already in place. Baker Tilly’s global network means all our lawyers are connected – sharing expertise across every jurisdiction. As important are the relationships we build: with you as the client, and with each other as a seamless, focused team.

One partner, many specialisms

Commercially and competitively focused, you need a partner with entrepreneurial drive. One focused on guiding you through your deal opportunities, as well as creating the corporate environments in which your business can thrive.

We customise our services and advice to meet your particular needs. We bring together the know-how of interdisciplinary teams – lawyers and legal specialists capable of working alongside auditors, tax and asset management experts, real estate specialists and management consultants. 

With in-depth understanding of your business and the deals you want to make, we can work effectively across all areas of compliance, maximising your portfolio’s potential, and building a legal framework for your business that works today, and tomorrow.
