We prefer to be on your team, providing level-headed advice to businesses who expect their lawyers to show commercial acumen allied with sound legal judgment. We operate across a range of business sectors, including manufacturing, retail, waste & environmental, sport, services, technology and logistics.

Our genuine strengths cover core business contracts; supply chain management; brand protection; payment services and outsourcing; franchising; joint ventures; the appointment of dealers, agents and distributors worldwide; technology; and inventions and rights in creative works. We have superb intellectual property specialists and a host of sector specialists.

Always putting the law in its proper commercial context, we deliver ROI for your strategic contracts and investment projects as well as ‘business as usual’ needs. Law is our business; but making the law work to your advantage is our core strength – and your opportunity.

The senior lawyers in our team are hands-on. Being entrepreneurial is a product of many years’ experience. You can expect our partners and directors to be involved whenever needed. Simplicity trumps complexity in our world.

On behalf of our clients, we drive hard bargains, focusing on the intended ROI; making the project happen with a positive outlook and a sense of perspective. Picture perfect legal solutions do not always fit the business landscape, so we’ll mould the best outcome for you around legal requirements and commercial realism.

We pride ourselves on our innovative approach, both in terms of our service delivery and the client-focused products we’ve developed – including our Bribery Act toolkit, PRO-Q proactive integrated document management system, and unlimited T&Cs updates.

Our advice spans all aspects of business contracts, intellectual property, commercial ventures/projects and business regulation – both nationally and internationally.
