Under the leadership of the 'consistently reliable and accessible', Teri Hunter, Moorcrofts LLP fields a corporate practice that is considered 'a trusted partner to clients' and is 'excellent on all fronts, particularly with regard to response times'. The firm's focus on corporate technology mandates makes it a natural choice for clients ranging from start-ups to PLCs. In an illustration of the firm's technology-sector expertise, Adrian Phillips  (who 'drives projects forward and protects clients' interests') and Peter Woolley  led a team advising Extrinsica Global on the demerger of the client's intelligent automation software business, which involved two preliminary capital reductions and a subsequent capital reduction demerger. In another highlight, Hunter ('excellent at explaining technicalities') acted alongside Will Pearce  and Mohsin Shabbir  ('responds in a timely fashion to calls for assistance') for Big Sky Partnership, a photographic and production studio, on two strategic acquisitions to expand its studio and production capabilities, and acted for the shareholders of TeamUltra on its £6m sale to Computacenter.
