Areas of expertise

COMMERCIAL LEASES

For most businesses, the biggest financial risk they take is when they sign a commercial lease. For even modest premises, the commitment you make when you sign a lease can often be greater than the value of your family home.

EMPLOYMENT LAW

It seems that everyone has an opinion on each of these issues, and many others. Yet often, these opinions have no basis in law. It’s because of this that employers can find themselves the subject of an Employment Tribunal, or even criminal prosecution.

CONTRACTS

A gentleman’s word may be his bond, but if it turns out your customer is no gentleman, you need to be able to enforce your contract. With the English legal system being very heavily biased towards evidence, it’s very useful to have hard evidence of your agreement.

SHAREHOLDER & PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS

When you go into business with someone, you’re likely to spend more time with them, and have your finances & fortunes more closely linked to theirs than if you’d married them.

COMMERCIAL DEBT RECOVERY

It’s an unfortunate fact of business that some customers will stretch your credit to breaking point. There can be several reasons for this – their own cash flow is tight, so they’re ‘robbing Peter to pay Paul’; their systems are just not coping with which bills need paying

BUSINESS SALES & ACQUISITIONS

Starting a new business from scratch is always a risky enterprise – over half of all new starts fail within their first five years. Fewer than one in ten make it to their tenth birthday.

So it’s little wonder that many entrepreneurs opt for a softer start – buying an existing business.
