About Devant

At Devant we occupy a unique niche between commercial lawyers and real business people.

As you’d expect, we’re really hot on the legal stuff and make it our business to keep up to date with changing legislation and case law. But the thing that makes Devant clients stick with us, and recommend us to their friends, is our commercial nous. We only employ commercial consultants who’ve had hands-on business experience.

This means we can ask probing questions to get to the bottom of the deals you put together, and advise on how best to manage your risk, streamline the process, and maximise your margin.

Since we were established in 2003, we have supported hundreds of companies, across dozens of sectors, creating thousands of successful deals (and a couple of unsuccessful ones!). We work with all sorts of organisations including public sector (such as the Department of Work and Pensions, MoD and NHS), large corporates (including CGI and Fujitsu), small and medium-sized companies and start-ups.

iso9001In August 2015, Devant was thrilled to receive its certification for ISO 9001 from BSI.

This reflects our commitment to quality, consistency and excellence in customer service.
