Commerce

Practical, commercial and down to earth. Expert advice for business.

‘All services’, or full service, is at the heart of everything we do, underpinning the fact that we offer our clients top to bottom, beginning to end help and advice. We act for high net worth individuals, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), large corporates, conglomerates and multinational businesses, successfully resolving complex business matters across a range of legal disciplines. These include litigation, general fraud work (including procurement fraud, tax fraud and general white collar crime), mis-selling, insurance and debt recovery. Running a business is difficult at the best of times, but having to deal with a contractual or legal problem can take up so much time and energy that vital day to day activity ends up being neglected. We have the expertise required to deal with any problems our commercial clients face and the flexibility to bring these varied specialisms together into one solution-driven package, leaving you free to concentrate on running your business.

Of particular importance within the commerce sector is the increasing regulation (and complexity of regulation) in all areas, leading to constant changes in our clients’ requirements. The service we offer is flexible and responsive to these changes, intent on remaining one step ahead in an ever shifting legal and business framework. We never lose sight of our clients’ commercial aims, or of the fact that we are simply assisting our clients to achieve those aims. Put simply, we help our clients to do business.

All Services

No matter who or what we’re dealing with, our commercial team seeks to minimise the risk and maximise the results by way of seamless advice across all services. Working closely with one of our departments provides you with access to every other department relevant to your business, and what we offer will be an integrated bespoke package made up of expertise drawn from our partners in Banking, Governance and Corporate, Litigation, Real Estate and Projects. The added value we provide comes from our years of experience working with a huge range of clients, and the insight this has given us into their objectives.

One Step Ahead

Despite our size and the depth of our knowledge we still offer enviable flexibility. Our central London base makes it easy to provide a personal service across all disciplines and we can put together the best team at short notice, factors which mean we also work for highly competitive rates.

We also work closely with regulators from all different sectors, such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA), to name just three, and this means that we have our finger firmly on the pulse of regulation, understanding the framework in which it is created and then delivered, and can tap into any changes that might be on the way faster than our competitors. Our wide ranging grasp of regulation as a general concept makes it easy for us to zero in on the particular aspects that are presently causing concern.
