Corporate & Commercial
As part of the comprehensive service we offer to businesses, our highly skilled and experienced corporate and commercial team can help you at every stage of your business’s lifecycle, from starting your company, looking at its internal structuring, reviewing its contractual arrangements with key stakeholders, to advising in relation to a sale of the business or purchase of a new one.
We take time to get to know you and your business, so we can offer you pragmatic, commercial advice tailored to your specific objectives.
We can help with:
- Business sales and acquisitions, including both share and asset sales and purchases. We can guide you through the whole process from due diligence through to negotiating and agreeing the sale and purchase agreement. Our team has extensive experience in working on transactions, which include a diverse range of business sectors, and often, a high degree of complexity.
- Contractual arrangements, including terms of business, supplier contracts, distribution agreements, franchise agreements and non-disclosure agreements.
- Internal structuring and company formation, including shareholders’ agreements, articles of association and share options.
We work closely alongside our colleagues in Employment, Commercial Property, Commercial Litigation, Property Finance and Commercial Debt Recovery to provide a holistic and joined up approach to commercial legal advice across the firm.
Chris Biggs and his colleagues continue to maintain their high standards. I am extremely pleased with all the work they have completed for me and would happily recommend them to anyone. They are professional, thorough and ultimately I trust their advice and judgement.
