Corporate Finance

Our clients include investors, lenders, borrowers, financial institutions, hedge and investment funds and venture capitalists. We have significant experience in working with corporate finance houses and funds as well as other management advisors on funding activities and transactions.

We advise on debt and equity investments, including the use of bonds, loan notes and conversions, short term and working capital funding, as well as leveraged finance, asset finance, lease financing transactions, private equity transactions, management buy-ins and buy-outs, preparing companies for sale and routes to market.

We have good contacts with a large number of corporate finance houses and are, therefore, able to source both the advice best suited to our clients in any given situation and the funds necessary to enable our clients achieve their objectives.

Testimonial

Neil Porteus, Finance Director, The Deep commented on Druces LLP’s involvement as follows: “Druces were instrumental in assisting The Deep to secure the last £3m of capital funding to complete its stunning aquarium in Hull and so it is fair to say that we wouldn’t be here today – let alone be 10 years old – without the most invaluable advice of Druces LLP! In the intervening years, Druces LLP have continued to provide advice on a range of issues and we are entirely grateful for their wise counsel.”
