Commercial Leases: Legal support for commercial leases is crucial for both landlords and tenants to ensure clarity, fairness, and protection of their respective interests. Commercial leases are complex legal documents that govern the landlord-tenant relationship, and our expert commercial property legal experts play a vital role in drafting, negotiating, and reviewing these agreements.

We can assist in addressing key provisions such as rent, lease duration, break clauses, repairing obligations, and assignment rights. Additionally, our team will guide clients through lease renewal processes and help resolve disputes that may arise during the tenancy.

With our in-depth knowledge of property law and commercial regulations, we ensure that commercial leases are tailored to meet the specific needs of each party, minimise potential risks, and create a stable and mutually beneficial landlord-tenant relationship.

Shareholder Agreements: When it comes to shareholder agreements, it is essential to establish clear rights, responsibilities, and protections for shareholders in a company. Shareholder agreements are vital documents that govern the relationship between shareholders and outline their respective roles in decision-making, profit-sharing, and exit strategies.

That’s why our team of commercial legal experts play a critical role in drafting and negotiating these agreements to address various scenarios, such as management disputes, share transfers, or changes in the company’s structure. We ensure compliance with company law and tailor the agreement to meet the specific needs and goals of the shareholders involved.

With our guidance, shareholders can safeguard their investments, prevent potential conflicts, and foster a stable and harmonious business environment that supports the company’s growth and success.

Partnership Disputes: Partnership disputes can involve disagreements over decision-making, profit-sharing, distribution of responsibilities, or even the dissolution of the partnership. We have specialist team which specialises in partnership law, and we play a crucial role in resolving these disputes through negotiation, mediation, or litigation.

We thoroughly analyse the partnership agreement and relevant laws to determine the best course of action for our clients. Our aim is to protect the interests of each partner and find equitable solutions to reach an amicable resolution.

With our guidance, partners can minimise the impact of disputes on the business, preserve relationships, and ensure the smooth continuation of operations or the orderly dissolution of the partnership, if necessary.

Director disputes: Director disputes may involve conflicts over decision-making, breach of fiduciary duties, disagreements regarding corporate strategy, or allegations of misconduct. Just like partnership disputes, our specialist team plays a crucial role in advising both individual directors and the company itself on the best course of action.

We help analyse the company’s articles of association, relevant legislation, and corporate governance guidelines to assess the directors’ rights and obligations. We can also assist in mediation, negotiation, or, if necessary, litigation to resolve the disputes effectively and protect the interests of all stakeholders involved.

Our expertise ensures that director disputes are handled with utmost professionalism, preserving the company’s reputation and ensuring the best possible outcome for all parties concerned.

Business Lasting Power of Attorney: (BLPA): It is important for any business owner to consider what would happen to their business and the day to day running of it if they were unable or unavailable to make decisions. If an individual is a sole trader or only director of a company and that person lacks capacity their business may be at risk. 

A BLPA allows the donor to appoint an attorney to make decisions concerning his business interests when he is unavailable or lacks capacity. A BLPA may only be used to make decisions affecting the operation of the business, as this is what the attorneys are authorised to do.

Our specialist commercial team can assist businesses in preparing an LPA to ensure all parties are protected and submit the document to the relevant authorities.

Regulatory Action: Legal support for regulatory action is crucial for individuals and businesses facing investigations or enforcement proceedings initiated by regulatory authorities. Regulatory actions can be initiated by various bodies, such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), or the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), among others.

Our team of regulatory legal experts play a significant role in advising clients on their rights and obligations, guiding them through the investigative process, and formulating robust defence strategies. Members of our team can represent clients during interviews and hearings, aiming to minimise potential penalties or sanctions.

With our in-depth knowledge of the relevant regulations and experience in dealing with regulatory bodies, we ensure that clients’ interests are protected, and they receive fair treatment during the proceedings. 

Refinancing: When refinancing a property or a business, it’s important to seek expert legal advice for guidance through the complex process. Our specialist team can assist in reviewing and negotiating loan agreements, ensuring that terms are favourable and align with the borrower’s financial goals.

Our legal professionals also conduct due diligence on the property or business being refinanced, identifying any potential legal issues or encumbrances that need to be addressed.

Furthermore, we ensure all necessary documentation is properly prepared and submitted, facilitating a timely and efficient refinancing process. With their expertise in property and finance law, legal support for refinancing in the UK helps clients secure better terms, reduce costs, and navigate potential legal complexities with confidence.
