Building a successful business is anything but easy, so thorough preparation is essential. Whether you are starting a new venture from scratch, buying an existing operation or looking to expand, our Commercial specialists can advise on the implications of operating as a sole trader, partnership or limited company. Our Commercial Property specialists can help if you are considering re-locating or expanding your premises as your business grows, giving expert advice on leases, site development, planning and environmental issues. And if it’s staffing changes you’re embarking on, our Employment and HR specialists can guide you through the legal minefield of hiring new starters, preparing you for employer issues and advising on and drafting employment contracts, staff handbooks and policy documentation.
We want every one of our clients to succeed and fulfil their commercial potential. Client care lies at the heart of this commitment and you can be assured direct access to our specialist commercial teams whenever you need it; by phone, email, or face-to-face. We can arrange meetings at your office, or ours, to suit you. We believe that the best way to provide you with the first class service you require is to understand your business. By working closely with you in this way, we gain a unique insight into your particular needs, tailoring comprehensive support every step of the way.
Whether it’s patenting your innovative new product or protecting your bottom line by improving credit control and debt recovery rates, our dedicated specialists can look after your business interests to ensure your continued success.
