Or, read on to find out more about what a commercial solicitor does.
Commercial solicitors draft business contracts, acting as negotiator between parties. This ensures watertight contracts are drawn up that meet each party’s interests. A well-written contract defines the parameters of a business relationship, setting out things such as the terms and conditions of trading. This limits disputes further down the line.
Some commercial solicitors (including Breen Solicitors) offer a company secretarial service. This allows you to run your business while someone else deals with the demands of Companies House. This can include things such as maintaining the company’s statutory registers and taking minutes of directors’ meetings.
Lots of business lease, buy or sell a commercial property during their lifespan. Commercial property solicitors manage all the legal aspects included in the sale, purchase or lease of a commercial property. This includes collecting relevant property information from surveyors and confirming that the seller does indeed have the rights to sell the property.
Commercial dispute litigation
Sometimes businesses encounter disputes. This could be within the company itself – for example, a disagreement could arise between partners. Or the dispute may be with an external party, such as another business or a client. Whatever the circumstances, commercial solicitors who specialise in commercial disputes can help resolve the matter.
Compliance and regulatory
Businesses have various laws to comply with. Commercial solicitors can advise on compliance, ensuring the relevant legal and tax regulations are met. This allows a business to operate as efficiently as possible, while still acting within the confines of the law.
In addition, commercial solicitors can help businesses, developers, public bodies and anyone else in the corporate world with –
- Legal agreements, such as Partnership Agreements
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Debt recovery
- Business continuity planning
