The art of good business
We work closely with you to understand your aims and objectives and the challenges you face building a relationship that consistently delivers the right results throughout every stage of the business cycle.
Start-ups and Entrepreneurs
Spark, ambition and a sense of independence. We embrace the spirit of entrepreneurs. From setting out key terms of employment and structuring your business, to protecting your intellectual property and negotiating a good deal on a property lease – our job is to help mitigate risks and put the building blocks in place to grow your idea.
Taking your business to the next step can be challenging. More staff means more HR considerations. More work means a more robust process for delivering. You might be considering joining forces through mergers and acquisitions or joint ventures.
Expanding your workforce might involve sponsoring migrant workers from around the globe. Our team can help you prepare for the unexpected to avoid commercial disputes arising – but if they are unavoidable, we can support you through the courts or via mediation.
Growth and maturity
The market and financial climate is always changing, presenting fresh challenges as well as hidden opportunities. If you’re seeking new routes to market, our inward investment team are on hand with expert advice. Our commercial property team can advise on licensing if you need flexibility to change premises easily as your business grows. We can also advise on restructuring exercises to avoid risks posed by former employees and competitors.
Exit and succession
When starting a business, it’s easy to forget that at some point you’re going to leave. The decisions you make early on can help when it comes to succession and exit planning strategies. We can also set out the various options available to reduce liabilities if you plan to terminate your lease.
