Our Business Law service aims to provide comprehensive advice and commercially appropriate solutions for your business. We endeavour to be straightforward and cost effective.

We act for clients across all business sectors, providing advice and representation in business sales and purchases, the setting up, managing and re-structuring of companies, partnerships, LLPs and joint ventures. Our plain-language approach to advice is intended to help you and your business navigate the requirements of corporate and commercial law.

Business transfers

Businesses change hands for all manner of reasons. We are keen to understand your objectives and needs from the outset.

We are able to offer the following:

  • advice on business transfer agreements, either share transfers or asset transfers, whether for the outright sale or purchase of an entire business or the transfer of part, for instance on retirement or merger
  • retirement from, or admission to, a company or partnership
  • preparing your business for sale.

Business formations

It is important to have the right business structure, preferably from the outset, or to restructure it as your business develops and changes.

We are able to offer the following:

  • formation of a company, whether limited by shares (for a general trading company) or limited by guarantee
  • bespoke company articles to create different classes of shares or with differing rights, according to your particular needs
  • partnership agreements for general businesses or for professional businesses (including doctors, accountants, solicitors and dentists)
  • formation of limited liability partnerships and agreements.

Business ventures

We recognise that businesses and individuals often collaborate together bringing diverse skills, finance or other abilities. Whether you are an owner-manager, a family business or a private investor, it is important to cover the rights and duties of the parties involved.

We can provide you with assistance on:

  • shareholder agreements
  • joint venture agreements for bespoke projects
  • investment agreements for private funding.

Business terms

It is important not to neglect the terms of business under which you trade. Failure to do so can often give rise to disputes and misunderstandings.

We can offer you assistance in the preparation of standard terms and conditions for your business whether:

  • you trade as a business to customer
  • you trade as business to business
  • you supply services
  • you supply goods
  • you provide goods and services.
