Whether you are launching a new business, need help with governance, employment matters, contracts and dealings with third parties, or are selling your business, our commercial team can help.

We bring many years’ experience and commercial nous to all our dealings with our business clients. We believe that we can provide the best service to you by fully understanding your business and its objectives. That comprehensive approach has enabled us to cultivate longstanding relationships with many of our business clients. We take great satisfaction in contributing to our clients’ success and welcome the opportunity to engage in initial discussions with prospective clients, allowing us to better understand your requirements and needs in order to build our relationship with you.

We have significant experience in assisting business owners from the inception of their company, partnership or LLP and throughout their ownership of that business, be that in respect of commercial contracts, employment documentation, property matters, licensing matters and disputes that can arise in all of those fields. We deal with both contentious and non-contentious aspects of employment matters acting for employers and employees in relation to disciplinary and performance issues as well as redundancy situations and settlement agreements. Our expertise also includes dealing with sales of businesses and their assets when their owners may look to reap the rewards of their efforts from building up their business.

We believe that these are all areas of law which requires absolute attention to detail, clarity of drafting and ability and experience in considering the consequences of such drafting and its effect over a potentially expansive suite of documents. We have the experience, skills and behind-the-scenes tools and systems to achieve those requirements.
