Bringing certainty to your business through trusted legal counsel and commercial experience.

We don’t take our role as trusted advisors lightly. That’s why we invest 100% of our time and attention to understanding your business. We firmly believe that our advice is only useful if it’s given in the context of what is happening for our clients.

We know that no two clients are the same so the advice we deliver, and how we deliver it, will look different depending on who you are, what you need, and where you want to go. The only things that remain constant are what we believe are key to good legal advice: being useful and commercially reasonable.

One day, we may work on designing a project plan for a client’s internal restructure and the next, we might be providing advice on AML/CTF obligations. We’ll work with you to give you the confidence you need to take the next step in your growth journey.

You can rely on us not only as your lawyer, but as a true collaborator in your business.

Transaction Advice & Support

We know how to make your M&A transaction a success – whatever that looks like for you. Our project management approach to large-scale transactions ensures that our energy, and yours, is focused where it needs to be, when it needs to be. Our advice is direct and commercially focused, and given in a format that suits you best. We make sure that we know every detail, so nothing is missed and deadlines are met.

From the very beginning of our business, Burch&Co have been trusted advisors. They are always looking for the most efficient and effective solution while taking the time to understand why we want the outcome we are looking for.
