We’ll ensure that the legal side of your business always runs smoothly and effectively. We support clients of all sizes across a broad spectrum of industries, providing straightforward advice and guidance on multiple areas of corporate law.  

Business Startups

There can be a lot of decisions to make when you’re setting up a business. A key choice is which type of legal entity to adopt. Should you form a limited company, a partnership or operate as a sole trader? Depending on the size and type of your venture, you might also need to decide on the most appropriate management structure.

We can help you with these choices, and any other legal matters that may arise during the startup phase. 

Banking & Securities

We have extensive experience in banking and finance law. We can help you with funding of corporate acquisitions, refinancing if your business switches banks, negotiating facility and security documents, and advice on personal guarantees.

Company Secretarial Services

Following changes introduced under the Companies Act 2006, a lot of private limited companies are now using solicitors to carry out duties previously undertaken by a company secretary. 

From looking after your company books to filing annual returns, we can free up some of your valuable time by performing a wide range of the tasks that require some degree of legal knowledge.
