Lawyers for corporate transactions

Our corporate lawyers’ reputations are founded on the quality, complexity and size of the major corporate transactions we have advised on and our ability to steer clients through these and secondary matters in as smooth, timely and as easy manner as possible.

We focus on attracting the best talent to help ensure that client projects are well managed. Our high calibre corporate lawyers provide clients with quality legal advice and a compelling alternative to City firms and other regional consolidators, delivering outstanding value for money.

Clients say: “They’re really nice people to work with and really go the extra mile.”

Tim Sadka deals with a wide range of matters, including corporate structuring and M&A, and is highly experienced handling transactions for mid-market businesses and SMEs. Clients say he offers “excellent guidance and advice.”

Alan Zeal “leaves no stone unturned” and will “always do the utmost for his client.” He handles a wide array of M&A and MBO transactions. Sources also praise him for being “unflappable, calm and collected.”

Bruce Hayter is chair of the firm and has extensive experience acting for businesses of all sizes on corporate transactions as well as structurings and governance issues.

With five offices in the South East, Rix & Kay Solicitors LLP is considered ‘ideal for larger transactions, but equally able to deliver a cost-effective solution for smaller transactions’.

Alan Zeal ‘is a consummate professional, who brings a wealth of experience to the table’. The firm’s chairman Bruce Hayter is ‘very solution oriented and focuses on what really matters.

The team was further strengthened by the addition of Tim Sadka, who joined in September 2017 and, according to one client, ‘brings a depth of experience and technical capability to an already effective and versatile team’.
