As business specialists, we guide clients through a wide range of transactions with a commercially focused and pragmatic view, ensuring that our clients have a detailed understanding of the agreement that they are entering into.
We recognise that whether clients are setting up a new company or selling a business after many years of establishing a strong reputation in their area, entering into business transactions can be unnerving.
When dealing with business deals it is incredibly important that documents are drafted in a way that reflects the parties’ intentions, and we spend time at the outset and throughout getting the detail right.
We often deal with clients involved in a protracted partnership dispute or shareholder disagreement that could have been avoided if a partnership or shareholder agreement had been put in place.
We are more than happy to meet with clients to do a company ‘health check’ to review existing documents and to identify issues that should be addressed.
We can also assist your business to put in place standard terms and conditions for supplies of goods and services to ensure that you are protected.
