Introducing BLP - Welcome

Trying to buy a company within 3 days and from under the noses of a rival is just one of those opportunities (or challenges) that arise in business. When they do arise, companies rely on BLP to help them find the best path forward and to achieve success.

We are BLP, an award-winning global law firm. Below, and throughout this website, we introduce some of the myriad challenges that we have helped well-known businesses around the world to overcome. It should provide a good sense of the legal and sector expertise, the exceptional personal commitment and the resolute focus on results that you too would experience if you worked with us.

We always prefer to introduce ourselves in person over a coffee and focus first on the opportunities and risks that you face, but hope the information on this site suffices in the meantime. Please do get in touch.
