About our commercial law solicitors

When it comes to the management, structure and protection of your business, you need to be assured that the legalities are handled by experienced and knowledgeable professionals.

Our team of commercial law solicitors holds a wealth of expertise across a broad range of business matters, from intellectual property licensing, partnership and contracts to company restructuring.

Whether you are setting up a new business venture or making changes to an established company, the team are able to advise on the necessary steps to achieve the best possible outcome.

Protecting what makes your business unique

From ideas and plans, to products, software and company branding, there are many elements within your business which could be under potential threat of copying if they are not properly registered or protected.
Our intellectual property solicitors can help ensure that these elements of your business are protected.

Cast-iron contracts

A well drafted, clear contract is the foundation of any business agreement. Where there is ambiguity, there is potential for dispute which can be costly. 
Our commercial law solicitors will work with you to ensure that requirements, intentions, responsibilities and duties are clearly defined throughout your contracts and terms and conditions, leaving no room for error or misinterpretation.

Regulatory matters

Keeping up to date with regulatory matters can be a challenge for a busy business.  Our commercial law solicitors keep abreast of a wide range of regulations relevant to most businesses, and can advise when there is a change in the law.

Looking after you and your people

A business cannot run itself. The workforce is the heart of any thriving company and it’s vital to ensure that each and every employee is properly on-boarded, protected and given clear guidance and support to fulfil their role.
Our commercial law solicitors bring together exceptional knowledge and experience of commercial contracts, corporate governance and restructuring, combined with the expertise of our employment law solicitors who provide pragmatic advice for employers and HR professionals.

The future of your business

Longevity of a business is dependent on many factors. One of which is making sure the business has a structure which is fit for purpose. Well drafted corporate agreements that set out the intentions of the business, both now and in the future are vital to the effective running of the business. Ensuring these are reviewed to take account of changes within the company is important to maintain their effectiveness.

Our commercial law solicitors can review your documentation, in line with your commercial requirements and objectives, to ensure that you, your business and your products are protected and able to continue to work effectively in the face of changes and challenges to your industry.
