We act for many business owners; from supporting start-ups, raising finance and business development, through to advising on sales and retirement planning.

Commercial Property

Commercial property transactions and commercial clients need top-level legal advice, but also instant response times and the highest levels of customer service.

Agricultural Property

Our rural team offers practical and commercial advice to farming businesses, landowners and rural businesses.

Employment Law

Our employment lawyer, Ian Pearson, spent years at law firms in the city and working in-house at BP, so we’re lucky to have his expertise.

We advise employers on best practice in all aspects of HR and employment law; firstly, how to avoid problems, and secondly, how to deal with them if they arise.

We also work with employees. Settlement agreements are an increasingly important tool in resolving disputes between employers and employees.  Employees have to receive advice from an independent lawyer before signing these agreements and it’s very important to get that advice from an expert.

Commercial Disputes

We regularly help commercial clients resolve disputes, with:

  • Landlords
  • Customers
  • Suppliers
  • Other professionals – surveyors, accountants, other solicitors.

Retirement Planning

Retirement can be a divisive issue – some of us can’t wait to retire and count the days from about the age of 55, others dread the prospect! 

Whatever your view, it’s undoubtedly the case that detailed planning will make retirement a happier experience and provide reassurance about your finances. This is particularly so for business owners. 

We will be happy to help and support you with all aspects of the legal framework of your retirement, from selling your business, or shareholding, to making sure you are freed (or properly indemnified) from any on-going liabilities (for example, loans, overdrafts, leases or personal guarantees).

Business Purchases or Sales

Whether you are at the start of an exciting new business venture or approaching the end of your career and thinking about retirement, we will be happy to assist in the planning and execution of your plans.

We specialise in advising clients with:

  • Significant property portfolios (residential and commercial)
  • Farms and agri businesses
  • A range of other small and medium-sized businesses, across various sectors

Outstanding from the minute you step through into the fresh, clean modern office.
Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming
