Running a Business

Whether you’ve just set up or acquired a business, or you’ve been a business owner for many years, running a business isn’t always a smooth process. In the life cycle of any business, you are likely to come across a whole host of challenges and opportunities; some will be familiar territory and others will require expert knowledge and fresh strategic input.

Our Corporate and Commercial lawyers understand that all businesses have different needs and we tailor our service to meet the requirements of each client, be that a small start-up, an established corporate player or a charity organisation. Our specialist team have the experience behind them to be able to advise businesses on their day-to-day legal needs, bringing in expertise from our Commercial Disputes, Employment and Commercial Property teams where needed.

A number of lawyers in our team have spent many years working as in-house lawyers and know first-hand the importance of receiving pragmatic, commercially focused and clear advice on commercial matters.

How we can help

Our Corporate and Commercial solicitors are here to help you make your business a success and to help you navigate you through any hurdles you face along the way. This may be for one-off pieces of work or advice, or may form part of an ongoing relationship where you pay a set amount per month for legal support for your business.

We appreciate that one size doesn’t fit all and are happy to explore flexible and cost efficient packages or fee options that best suit your requirements and budget.

Whether you’d like someone to review a commercial contract, to discuss a potential commercial dispute, or provide assistance with your employment contracts and policies, get in touch by calling 0117 325 2929 or fill out our online enquiry form.

  • "When I felt like giving up and it became very emotional for me, Georgina was extremely supportive and helped me through when my spirits were low. She picked me up and helped me to take the sale through to fruition. I would like to thank Georgina for all her excellent advice, support and hard work, strength of mind and tenacity. Her negotiating skills are second to none. These are qualities that no one could put a price on.”
