Farrer & Co is an independent law firm with a rich history
Private businesses represent a dynamic and vibrant part of the economy. They are owned and run by people who are passionate about the future of their companies and who dedicate their energy and enthusiasm into making them a success.
We enjoy working alongside private businesses as they grow, innovate and transform; from small start-up companies to larger businesses capable of competing on an international stage. We attract lawyers who enjoy working in partnership with their clients and who see the wider picture, so you can be sure the advice is right for your business and for you.
Our clients include companies owned by families, entrepreneurs, private equity institutions and angel investors. These are businesses where there is often a close relationship between shareholders and management. This environment is unique to private businesses and we provide advice tailored to this context.
We support private businesses at all stages of their development. Whether you are planning for expansion, managing a high value commercial dispute, adapting to technological change, considering an acquisition or grappling with corporate governance issues, we can deliver strategic solutions.
Our advice is provided by market-leading specialists, focusing on areas including M&A, joint ventures, investments, disputes, tax, property, finance, intellectual property, data protection and employment law.
In addition, our international experience and network of overseas advisors means we are able to deliver a seamless and truly global service to our clients.
