Maitland has particular experience in both the contentious and non-contentious sides of company law, and is regularly featured in the legal directories as one of the handful of leading barristers’ chambers in this area, with some of the more highly recommended individual practitioners.

Our work includes directors’ duties (as they arise both in claims for their breach and in disqualification actions), shareholder disputes, takeovers, mergers and acquisitions, corporate reconstructions, loan capital and banking securities, schemes of arrangement and reductions of capital, and insurance schemes.

We have been involved in many of the leading cases in this area, including Prudential Assurance v Newman Industries.

Maitland is ranked in Company Law in the Chambers UK Bar Guide and The Legal 500.
