Strategic Counsel

In providing Strategic Counsel services, we work closely with investors, CEO’s and their management team as a discreet and committed support, with a focus on execution and achieving results.  Increasingly, companies are expected to deliver shareholder return and growth whilst managing stakeholder relationship and upholding business integrity, ethics, fair dealing and corporate governance as performance pillars.

We use our combined team business experience to deliver insight, solutions and support to a problem or opportunity.  Whilst for a client this might be their first experience of a particular matter, for the Danetree, we are likely to have some experience we can leverage to the clients advantage.

When undertaking assignments with clients, we focus on understanding the commercial drivers and appreciating the organisational, people, supplier and market complexities.

We tackle problems and realise opportunities for client profit.
