Edward Chapman

I am a Managing Associate in our Corporate team based in Bristol, joining the firm in October 2019. I am an experienced transactional lawyer with a particular focus on the technology sector, acting for a diverse client base from start-ups and owner managed businesses through to SMEs and large corporates operating internationally.

I enjoy building and maintaining relationships with clients, finding out what drives them and providing support throughout their business lifecycle.

My expertise includes:

  • mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • corporate restructuring and reorganisations
  • joint ventures
  • articles of association and shareholders’ agreements
  • share buybacks, reductions of capital and documenting day to day corporate matters

Highlight matters

  • representing the shareholders in a circa £90m healthcare sale to an US real estate investment trust
  • representing an international food and beverage company on an acquisition in the UK as part of its buy and build strategy
  • supporting a client in its successful tender to deliver the Transport for London Future Bus system programme
  • representing clients in acquiring assets out of administration
  • dealing with the investment and corporate structuring for a boutique fitness studio based in Bath
  • providing commercial contracts support to a client on site on numerous occasions, including advising on NDAs and terms and conditions through to discrete contractual queries

I also have a specialism in emerging and disruptive technologies. I am a blockchain / distributed ledger technology thought leader and international conference speaker on cryptoassets. This followed a secondment working with crypto specialists at Anderson Kill in New York in early 2019.

I have an international outlook, having worked in the UK, US and Cyprus.   

In my spare time I can often be found playing football, golf and squash or chasing after Nessa (a cavapoo). 

I am also a member of the Bristol Junior Chamber of Commerce.
