Company Commercial Solicitors
The breadth and variety of clients within the Company Commercial department is vast. One day we could be advising a large national limited company and the next day we could be advising a sole trader start-up business. It is this variety which makes working in this Department so interesting for our committed and engaged team.
Regardless of the size of our client the key principle remains the same – to understand the client’s needs and be a trusted adviser to their business. Our role is more than that of just reciting the law – we aim to be true commercial partners to our clients.
The work undertaken in this Department is wide and varied. It can stretch from matters concerning the ‘exit’ phase of a business such as asset or share sales, to the ‘set up’ phase of a new business such as Shareholders’ or Partnership Agreements. In between, we are happy to help too! We have team members who are experienced in advising on Commercial Contracts encountered during the day to day operation of a business.
We would love to speak to any businesses who have any legal issues in the company commercial sector and we would welcome the opportunity to become your trusted commercial advisor.
