We help businesses enter, operate and grow in emerging markets and in assisting emerging market companies expand, access capital and transact in the world’s capital markets. We focus on M&A, transfers of businesses, strategic alliances, joint ventures, market entry and capital raising.

Aligned with the interests of the corporates we serve, our expertise is grounded in industry and sector knowledge and experience. We provide practical, commercially focused advice so our clients can achieve their ambitions and strategic objectives.

Clyde & Co has a considerable international reach through our global network of offices, extensive project management experience and long-established correspondent law firm relationships. We have a strong corporate presence in the main trading markets, with a team of over 100 corporate lawyers on the ground in the UK, Middle East, India, Asia Pacific and North and South America. We have a solid reputation and a proven track record on complex, cross-border transactions, particularly those involving new and emerging markets.

We advise a wide range of clients, including large multinationals, sovereign owned entities, family owned enterprises and entrepreneurs. Our mandates are predominantly to represent the interests of the company and its directors and our team is corporate rather than institution led, meaning that we will always look out for our client’s best interests regardless of who is involved in the discussions.

Our tax practice works with our corporate and finance practices advising on all aspects of commercial taxation across a wide range of industries to help our clients navigate their way through the complexities of tax legislation and related implications. We also give guidance on tax efficiency and provide in-house tax teams with the benefit of a second opinion on non-regular tax matters.

We advise a wide range of commercial organisations on establishing corporate structures, corporate governance and compliance issues. We also handle advisory work for our corporate clients, advising on cases of complex or unusual corporate shareholding or management structures.  We are particularly skilled at helping bridge the gap between various international corporate governance requirements.  Our corporate group draws upon transaction support from dedicated teams of specialists - regulatory and compliance, company secretarial, IP and technology, employment, commercial and competition teams. The firm’s extensive commercial dispute resolution capabilities give us an additional depth of perspective when assessing risks and advising on potential transactional problem areas.
