In today’s complex business world, clients require advisers who will challenge the possibilities of legal service delivery and approach matters through an innovative mindset and smarter ways of working. By combining our brand promise The Power of Being Understood with deep business relationships and by recognising client nuances in an ever-intensifying legal landscape, we are committed to providing an optimal and comprehensive offering.

At RSM we understand that clients require high quality legal services with increased efficiencies and collaboration across multidisciplinary teams. Whilst offering specialist expertise and professional advice all under one roof, we also recognise the value of providing a single point of contact to manage and co-ordinate our multifaceted service offering.

RSM’s legal service comprises talented, top tier lawyers from many legal practice areas who, in addition to being technically skilled, exhibit exceptional judgement and creative problem-solving skills – importantly they are also entrepreneurial in outlook and approach. This commercial acumen and skill set for advising the middle market, is what distinguishes our team from traditional law firms and other marketplace competitors.

For us, a tailored approach for the middle market means assisting entrepreneurs along every step of the way in their business journey. From the early phase (i.e incorporation of the company and its financing), to the growth phase (i.e joint venture agreements, mergers and acquisitions) and even in matters relating to litigation, credit recovery and restructuring.
