LAW AND BUSINESS DIRECTION

Steer and Co is a specialist legal hub providing legal advice and business direction to the media and technology industry. We provide a close working relationship with your business leaders and integrate seamlessly within your management team. This approach often means we work in house within your team for one off projects or on a regular basis.

With a deep understanding of both the media and technology industries we provide up to date legal advice in a commercial manner. To us it is all about helping you to close the right deals and identify business risks.

Our consistent approach and supportive flexible style means you have a skilled and designated legal team which really understand your business objectives.

On the costs front, because we don’t employ teams of lawyers, we have no incentive to overload your deals. Instead we have a network of lawyers and specialists who we source if and when your business requires them. Whether it is employment, corporate, litigation or detailed tax advice for example, we know when and how to engage such experts to compliment your existing team. Whatever the requirement, you only pay for what you need.
