Corporate and Commercial

Our core Rubric team supports your corporate and commercial legal needs alongside the services you need to run your business.

Whether you’re starting out or planning your exit, we guide you through the process and give you comprehensive advice to help solve your unique legal challenges.


Completing on average £100 million worth of transactions per year, the Rubric team are experts in working with businesses and owners to capitalise on each success. We’re by your side from the excitement of start-up through the joy of growing your business to your arrival at the natural moment of exiting, profitably.

Our ambition is to build long-term transactional trust, with relationships that run deeper than the production of legal documents and advice on company formation, shareholders agreements, funding rounds, restructuring and acquisitions.

Buying and selling of businesses is often an intense process, so we step up with constructive, straightforward business law advice with timely, strategic and cost-effective solutions, always sticking to the promises in our Communication Charter.

You can relax knowing our legal knowledge of your sector underpins our ability to give you comprehensive, relevant legal advice and solve your unique legal challenges.
