Toby Stroh (LLB) is a Consultant in Druces’ Corporate & Commercial team. He specialises in general company and commercial work. His experience ranges from first round start-ups for small to mid-size businesses in sectors as diverse as hi-tech university spin-outs and property, leisure and financial service entities, to venture capital, private equity and capital markets work involving fund raising and investor exits, to major project work and mergers and acquisitions. He has also worked on almost everything in-between, including most of the commercial work that clients involved in such diverse areas typically require ranging from IP and IT to distribution, agency, franchise and joint venture agreements and advice on competition law.
For a number of years Toby has also specialised in representing high net worth individuals (typically in the financial services sector) in employment related matters both contentious (High Court and Employment Tribunal) and non-contentious. He has built up a considerable expertise in this highly confidential and complex area. He is a member of the Alliance of Business Lawyers, an exciting and dynamic organisation of law firms around the world with an international clientele.
Toby speaks rusty French and his outside interests include music, food, travel and scuba diving. He lives in Buckinghamshire, with his wife, Sally, three dogs, two horses and five Soay (initially there were six but sadly one died). Toby joined Druces LLP (Druces & Attlee as it then was) in 1986.
In Legal 500, 2019 Toby is recognised for leading the team at Druces LLP on corporate and commercial M&A, with healthcare as a ‘sector strength’. Highlighted is Toby’s work with Montreux Healthcare Fund on its acquisition of Active Assistance (UK) Group. The 2017 edition recommended Toby for his corporate work, acknowledging the praise ‘for his ‘quick mind and all-round knowledge of the business and finance world’”.
