The Peterborough office of Buckles Solicitors LLP has a prominent position in the local market and, through its London office and its ties to Milan and Paris-based firm CastaldiPartners, it is developing a far wider reach for national and international matters. One client describes the practice as 'first-class - it has excellent knowledge and a clear and concise way of explaining the issues'. Nigel Moore leads the practice and specialises in transactional work for clients in the UK, Europe and the US. He advised two clients on the £1m sale of the entire issued share capital of Marriott’s Motor (Sales) Ltd, which had been a family run business for four generations. He also handled the sale of shares in Warner Edwards Distillery Ltd. on behalf of one of its main owners. Senior associate Nadine Duncan, who advises on commercial, IT, outsourcing and technology matters, and associate Robin Johnston are also recommended. Senior solicitor Katy Poole is highly-regarded for high-value and complex transactions.

Greenwoods GRM has a new lead corporate and commercial lawyer in Peterborough in Alastair Gunn since David Woods moved to lead the cross-office practice from Cambridge. The firm has a diverse client base that includes many of the region's SMEs as well as larger companies and PLCs from East Anglia and beyond. It has particular expertise in sectors such as food, media, technology and manufacturing. Associate Victoria Robinson and solicitor Ollie Flowers continued to build their reputation for incorporations, corporate governance issues, commercial agreements and the sale of assets and shares. Highlights for the practice included acting for shareholders of outsourced reliability maintenance services provider PEME in the sale of the business to private equity-backed Edwin James Holdings, and assisting Stratagem with its acquisition of Page Hargrave.

The corporate and commercial practice at Hunt & Coombs LLP is driven by the extensive experience of commercial and property team head Anna Spriggs, who regularly advises clients in the retail, not-for-profit, education and finance sectors. The IS Group Limited and The Peterborough Diocesan Board of Finance are among her clients. She recently assisted furniture retailer Anglia Home Furnishings Ltd with new store developments. Consultant Paul Tate  has retired from the practice but senior associate Edward Taylor is well-regarded for advice on commercial agreements, shareholder agreements, joint ventures, corporate transactions, company law issues and commercial contracts.
