Our Solicitors are Commercial Law specialists

We offer commercial advice and guidance on all aspects of running your business. From your customers to your suppliers and everything in between, we can put together all of the contracts you need to manage the day-to-day operations of your business and more as you expand, distribute shares, take on investors, acquire other companies, or sell your own.

As you grow and expand, we can help you protect your brand, your data, and your intellectual property. When the time comes, we can even draw up distribution agreements or setup all of the documents you need to franchise or expand into other markets.

Don’t make the mistake of waiting too long until you put your business affairs in order.

A well-written and expertly drafted agreement can not only give each party a confidence and peace of mind from knowing what to expect from each other, but it can also help to reduce the costs of any impending disputes should they become an issue down the road.

With the help of our team of commercial law experts, we’ve got all of your business, corporate and commercial law needs covered:

COMMERCIAL LEASE AGREEMENTS

If you rent a retail space, manufacturing plant, or commercial unit, or even if you own a property and want to setup a lease agreement with your tenant, we can help you put together the right documents, contracts, and agreements for a fair and equitable commercial lease agreement.

Since each commercial lease agreement can have many different terms, conditions, and rules for the landlord and the tenant, our commercial lease solicitors are here to help you make the right decisions without getting stuck into a long-term, unfavourable contract.

After dealing with hundreds of different commercial property lease agreements, our law firm has the knowledge and experience your business needs to put together an agreement that works for both parties, at a price and terms that are agreeable to everyone.

COMMERCIAL CONTRACTS

As you grow and expand your business, you’ll enter into contracts and agreements with customers, suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, and many other businesses that require the experience and knowledge our business and trade lawyers can provide.

We can help you start your business on the right foot with the business licenses you need, handle business valuations for your business or ones you’re thinking about buying, understand the differences between a contract law solicitor and a trade lawyer, and when your small business needs one or the other.

Let our team of experts help you manage your risk and protect your assets at the same time.

Whether you’re a small business owner, SME, or a large multinational firm, our pragmatic approach works in partnership with your business to protect your commercial interests when drafting business contracts with your suppliers, customers, and collaborators.

PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS

Since each partnership agreement features different funding and collaboration agreements, tax planning concerns, regulatory issues, business structures, and many other decisions, we don’t treat them alike no matter how many times we’ve drawn them up.

Relying on our many years of experience, our partnership agreement lawyers can help you setup your partnership, define partner duties and responsibilities, offer practical advice using mediation, arbitration, and negotiation to resolve disputes, and advise how to manage one partner leaving the partnership.

Even if it’s been a few years since you updated your partnership agreement, we can review your current contract to check if it’s up to date with the latest legislation and regulations. More importantly, we’ll review your current agreement to make sure your interests are protected.

SHAREHOLDER AGREEMENTS

Whether you’re establishing an agreement with only a few shareholders or a corporation with many of them, each shareholder agreement is completely unique.

Depending on what’s important to you and the other shareholders in your company, our commercial lawyers can work with you to develop a contract that’s practical and fair for everyone involved.

We can help you document both the day-to-day rights and responsibilities for your shareholders, and help you figure out how you want to deal with the many different issues that happen along the way.

Even if you’ve never owned a business before or haven’t had the need for a shareholder agreement lawyer in the past, our team of experts can help you setup the right clauses and conditions and explain the benefits you’ll get from having a shareholder agreement in place before you decide if it’s right for you and your business.

From startups to industry leaders, we help businesses of all sizes and structure determine which areas of corporate, business, and commercial law apply to their needs and how to navigate around them to put the right contracts in place to protect their business.
