Emma Shipp

Advisor

“When someone buys your company, they’re buying your contracts with your suppliers and customers. Get into the habit of keeping your contracts in order – and checking every clause. It takes a bit of discipline, but when the time comes to sell, it’s worth it.”

Emma knows what it takes to grow, sell and exit a business (or manage a merger). She’s done this for her clients and it’s the story of her career in law. When Emma joined a small law firm, it had a turnover of £500,000. Several M&As later, she was a board member of Shakespeare Martineau with a turnover of £76 million, and running the London office.

Emma also specialises in
Setting up companies
Funding
Shareholder agreements
Joint ventures
Terms of business (including for online companies)

Who Emma’s worked with
Emma was one of the lawyers behind the sale of a well-known shoe brand – black leather boots, yellow stitching (price tag, £300 million).
