Robert Boyle Partner

Robert is active in all fields of corporate law, advising on a broad range of corporate transactions, particularly in the public sector where he has significant experience of equity capital markets work (both primary and secondary, acting for issuers, financial advisers, underwriters and shareholders alike) and public takeover transactions, as well as in private M&A.

In addition to transactional work, Robert also advises a number of listed issuers in respect of their on-going corporate advisory work, which requires a detailed understanding of the UK regulatory regime. Over the last few years, Robert has also been increasingly involved in advising clients on governance, controls and risk management issues and in respect of investigations.
