Commercial Law Advice and Services

We deliver a comprehensive corporate law service to large and small businesses, joint ventures, partnerships and franchises. Our areas of expertise include the following:

Legal advice on starting a business

There is much to consider when forming a company, including the structure, registration process, rules that apply (such as licences and permits) and the reporting and management responsibilities.

At this stage of a company’s lifecycle it can be difficult to know what the options are, what is best for you and what you need to do. We will explain these often complex and confusing concepts clearly and simply. Whether you intend to form a limited company, LLP, partnership or any other type of business structure, our commercial law solicitors can guide you each step of the way to ensure your venture is compliant and has the most positive growth prospects.

Drafting and reviewing business agreements

At the centre of every company is a body of documents that govern how it is operated and the relationships between its members. It is vital that these agreements are drafted carefully to protect and promote the company’s interests.

We provide an extensive service formulating and reviewing commercial contracts, including:

  • Partnership agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Joint ventures agreements
  • Distribution and agency agreements
  • Franchise agreements
  • Business terms and conditions
  • Service (employment) agreements

Commercial property transactions and leases

Commercial property transactions, whether you are buying or selling, should always be guided by specialist legal advice to ensure you get maximum return on your investment and are protected from potential disputes. Our commercial property team has a wealth of experience dealing with all types of property transactions, including office blocks, shops, public houses, restaurants, mixed residential and commercial, investment properties and residential developments.

Entering and terminating commercial leases also requires the support of expert commercial property solicitors who can help negotiate terms that are as close to your requirements as possible or achieve the outcome you need if agreement cannot be reached.

Business and commercial disputes

Unfortunately, disputes involving companies are common. Disagreements can arise from all the relationships your business has, including between landlords and tenants, employees and employers, customers and suppliers and shareholders and directors. It is vital for a company’s success that all disputes are dealt with quickly and effectively. Our dispute resolution lawyers provide an expert and efficient service identifying and delivering outcomes for all types of company disputes.
