After people, property is the next major expense for many businesses and if not approached professionally can present a significant risk. With increasingly labyrinthine commercial property transactions, there is a growing need for legal specialists with the experience, foresight, and pragmatism to deliver working solutions in an ever-changing environment.
Buying or selling a business is always a tough decision. It also has the potential to be a complicated one, with multiple legal issues to be considered before a successful transaction can be completed. Which is why you need a comprehensive plan of action from the word go.
Whether you’re a start up ready for a more formal structure, or an established company that needs to restructure, we can provide experienced, expert advice tailored to your business type; advice that best protects your interests, assets, and personal liabilities.
The fact of the matter is, all companies require contracts. Whether complex agreements for specific circumstances, or basic terms and conditions for daily use, we have the experience and expertise to provide easily understood advice at every stage of the contract formation process. Clarifying the risks involved in any relationship, and guaranteeing you guard against them.
Corporate finance is the lifeblood of any business. Helping you mitigate risk and maximise profit, we can provide quick, clear, comprehensive advice on how best to proceed through a range of complex deals, ensuring you make the right business decisions.
As one of your single most valuable assets, your intellectual property rights need to be carefully guarded. Whether it’s help with brand or copyright, trademarks or design, our highly experienced team can identify where there is an automatic intellectual property (IP) right, when one needs to be registered, and how to best protect and exploit your IP.
Protecting your cash flow is vital if you want to keep your business afloat. To avoid debtor issues, our highly experienced team can help you establish an efficient means of payment collection in-house. If you already face issues, we can provide a tailored debt recovery service on a fixed fee, or percentage of recovery basis. Why, we can even help you recover non-UK debts.
Property disputes are rarely black and white. Whether the dispute is between landlord and tenant, seller and buyer, a dispute over trespassers and boundaries, lease-end dilapidations or business rates, you can trust our expert team of property litigation lawyers to resolve the disagreement with professionalism, sensitivity and care, no matter how complex.
