“Moorcrofts LLP provides transactional work for multinational organisations on M&A, share capital reorganisations, demergers and tax-driven issues. Members of the practice often advise US or other overseas clients in respect of their UK subsidiaries or groups, as well as for technology start-ups. Practice co-head Teri Hunter is ‘very responsive’, undertaking complex casework involving cross-border and international M&A, corporate restructuring, and buy-outs. ‘Proactive’ practice co-head Andrew Katz focuses on IT, corporate law, and IP issues related to corporate matters.”
Client testimonials to endorse and laud the Tier 1 ranking were also referenced:
“Moorcrofts is a firm that quickly established its credibility and was able to very effectively work with our management team and our other advisers, extracting concessions from much larger firms, for example, a Big 4 accountancy practice. All members of staff at Moorcrofts, from the office administrators to the senior partners are friendly, approachable, and professional with both a clear focus on the task in hand and a good sense of humour. They each give the impression that you are their most valued client!”
Others continued by saying:
“Specialist advice was offered where required from other members of the in-house team, for example, property, legal DD, and employment law. Teri Hunter quickly grasped our objectives and the project timescale and was able to effectively engage with other professional advisers on both sides of the transaction, which was further complicated by the fact that the purchasers were in the USA, and the Moorcrofts team embraced the challenge of working to a tight timescale and difference in the timeline.”
“Teri Hunter is a very sharp and clear communicator. She rapidly identified an alternative approach to the deal and ran rings around the other parties’ lawyer in a telephone conversation.”
The directory, which annually provides a full, in-depth and comprehensive analysis of law firms across the UK, listing only the best performing in the industry, also features Moorcrofts prominently in the South-East category for Information Technology, Intellectual Property and Employment.
