Area of Expertise
Solicitors for Business
Whatever the size of your business, you will require expert legal advice at some stage. Our expert business solicitors offer commercial legal services from our office in Spinningfields, Manchester.
The ever changing nature of business means that there are many challenges your business could face if you fail to ensure compliance with the legal framework. We offer professional legal advice to ensure that your business flourishes.
We will work with you as part of your team to understand what you do. Our solicitors offer straight forward commercial legal solutions to the challenges faced by your business. We aim to develop long term relationships so that you see us as a trusted advisor.
Most law firms overcomplicate things so that clients become dependent on their advice. We aim to simplify the legal process and provide affordable, high quality commercial law services so that you can stick to what you do best. Let us take care of your commercial contracts, compliance, regulatory, intellectual property, general business and commercial issues, debt collection and shareholder agreements.
Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution
We will not only adhere to your budget and goals, we will keep you in the loop every step of the way. Disputes can be stressful. Let us take on your stress and deliver commercial solutions. Our lawyers have experience of litigation, arbitration, mediation, adjudication and expert determination.
Your investment in Real Estate is likely to be your greatest financial asset. Blunders such as missed time limits, incorrect contracts, unidentified risks and incorrectly served notices can cost you severely. Whether it is commercial development; real estate finance; landlord and tenant; property litigation; joint ventures; planning; or the environment, we can assist you every step of the way.
Construction and Engineering
Whether you are looking to construct a development, buy a new build or things have gone wrong, we can assist. Few firms have our experience of advising on development agreements; drafting institutionally acceptable construction contracts, appointments and collateral warranties; bringing, defending and settling complex construction disputes and navigating the complicated construction specific adjudication process.
Debt Recovery Services
When your customers do not pay you, it can have an enormously damaging effect on your cash flow and ultimately the viability of your business. We appreciate the need to act swifty and efficiently to recover what is owed to you. We can advise you on the best course of action to recover your funds as efficiently and economically as possible. We understand that every client has different requirements and are able to provide a flexible and efficient service, tailored to meet your individual needs.
Immigration is a highly complex area of law, which is increasingly changing and therefore it is paramount that you have professional and reliable advice and guidance from the outset. We will provide you with clear and strategic immigration advice, which is bespoke for each situation and client. We do more than just process application and will get involved all the way through the process to minimise the stress that occurs in immigration matters.
Restructuring and Insolvency
Sometimes the unfortunate does occur. Bank funding dries up, customers stop calling or the economy changes. Come and see us to discuss administrations, CVAs, liquidation, receivership, pre-pack administrations or reviewable transactions. We will try and save your business or if inevitable, assist in wrapping up matters.
Whilst we are new firm, our commercial solicitors have wide ranging prior experience and have worked with Banks, Insurers, In-House Legal Teams, City Councils, Local Government Bodies, Further & Higher Education Institutes, a National Museum, NHS Trusts, Housing Associations, Developers, Major Car Park Operators, National Retailers, Care Home Operators, National and International Contractors, Insolvency Practitioners and Individuals.
Our business solicitors have advised on multi-million pound disputes in both the high court and in private arbitration proceedings. They have also drafted suites of contracts ranging in value from a few thousand pounds to a several hundred million pound, ten year partnership agreement.
