Bryan is a highly experienced corporate and commercial lawyer, handling the full range of corporate transactions including M&A, private equity, corporate restructures and joint ventures. He is also an employee share schemes specialist.

  • The decision to ask you to carry out all the corporate legal work regarding the sale and purchase of my company through a management buy out was without doubt one of the best in my career as a business owner! At every stage your good counsel, swift response and understanding of our needs gave me confidence that you were not simply an adviser, but a new and much valued member of our team. Every stage of the process was handled consummately by you so that could concentrate both on a very busy work period, and on managing the transition for clients and for our team. I will be recommending you and Keystone Law to anyone who needs any form of legal advice, because my experience has been that we have had the very highest quality of service at what I consider extremely good value for money.

  • I have used Bryan for corporate legal work (including shareholders’ agreements, LLP agreements and various types of share schemes) across a number of the companies for whom I act as FD. These businesses are generally entrepreneurial owner managed SMEs and without exception I have found Bryan to be extremely responsive and thorough but also pragmatic and understanding in finding the right solutions for each transaction. Bryan is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him.

  • I have recently started working with Bryan and I have found him to be very professional, a sentiment echoed by my fellow directors, easy to work with a very patient in explaining intricacies of anything I have asked him for advice on. Furthermore, there is not a whiff of arrogance from Bryan, something that I found with some lawyers I have dealt with in the past. I would thoroughly recommend Bryan for anybody needing corporate law work.

  • Bryan Rickman recently advised our business on a complex time sensitive project. From the beginning Bryan was responsive, efficient and helpful. His ability to liaise with other professional advisers and "own problems" made, the entire process infinitely less painful and fraught than it might otherwise have been. I cannot recommend Bryan highly enough.

  • Bryan patiently led us through the complex process of setting up an EMI scheme and made sure that no stone was left unturned. Highly recommended.
