The Bond Clarke approach

Before we engage with you, a detailed analysis of your requirement is undertaken, alongside an equally thorough review of the nature of your business and your unique risks, constraints and goals. Unusually, part of this process specifically addresses the most efficient charging model of each particular engagement. Bond Clarke makes no charge for this pre-engagement service which is of great benefit to lawyer and client alike. With a clear definition of scope and a jointly-agreed billing model, Bond Clarke engagements are characterised by their efficiency, low risk and low stress.

Our specialist lawyers advise upon a wide variety of corporate and commercial matters. Each are dedicated to providing a personal, partner-led service which delivers:

  • an agile and consultative approach
  • expert, context-sensitive services
  • practical, creative solutions for legal and commercial issues
  • added value to your business and your transactions
  • a leading role when negotiating and implementing deals

Bond Clarke represents clients who range from startups to international corporates and who include financial institutions, banks, brokers and investors such as private equity houses. We bring extensive experience in a wide range of business sectors, including leisure, manufacturing and service industries.

For many years, Bond Clarke has also offered particular expertise in all aspects of computing and information technology. We act for clients who are supplying IT and for clients who are buying IT. Our lawyers therefore understand each side of any IT engagement and will ensure a swift and equitable outcome.

The focus of Bond Clarke is solely upon our key areas of expertise. However, we also maintain a network of partner companies who provide quality services complementary to ours. This includes our sister company BC Transform, who help clients undertake any aspect of business change, plus recommended bankers, accountants, brokers, corporate finance advisers, insolvency practitioners and other specialist advisers.
