We makes things clear and simple so that you can get back to doing what you do best – running your business.

Ways in which we can help:

We understand the financial pressures every business has and will confirm what costs are likely to be before we act. Our commitment to you is that you’ll have no surprises and no hidden costs.

Contact our Commercial team today on 0333 321 4580. We have offices in Manchester and Liverpool where our expert solicitors can offer advice.

We develop long term relationships with our clients and provide high quality advice and service in a range of commercial areas. Our modern structure enables us to provide fixed fee quotes for non-litigation matters, and completely transparent fees for litigation cases. Our clients enjoy our pragmatic, friendly and no-jargon approach to providing legal advice, safe in the knowledge that they can pick up the phone without fear of being charged excessive fees.

We provide a range of specialist services to a diverse range of clients, from small local businesses and individuals to large, national companies. Whether you have a business you wish to sell, a commercial property you wish to buy or a dispute you need to resolve, we have the expertise to be able to help you without you incurring excessive legal fees. Our team has experience of dealing with a host of different matters in a down to earth, friendly and pragmatic way, and we will always let you know if we don't think you need to spend your hard earned money on legal fees. Please contact us for details of the services we offer.

Directors’ Duties

It is imperative when acting as a company director that you are aware of your duties to shareholders and creditors of the business, especially during a period in which the company is experiencing financial difficulties.

We provide advice to company directors on their duties and, most importantly, how to avoid personal liability should their business be forced into an insolvency process.

Business and Asset Sales

You may have decided that the time is right for you to sell your business. We can advise on the best way to realise the value in your company whilst minimising your exposure to risk. We will assist you with the entire process, from developing a disposal strategy to drafting and negotiating the sale agreements to protect your interests.

Debt Recovery

Many businesses suffer simply because of their customers’ failure to pay invoices in a timely manner. We can help to ensure that your customers pay on time and in full, both in situations in which you wish to maintain a relationship with your customer and those in which the relationship has come to an end.

Negotiating with Lenders

We have vast experience in dealing with financial institutions of all sizes. We are, therefore, ideally placed to provide advice to your business should it be struggling to repay a loan to a bank or other lender, or simply in need of restructuring its banking facilities in order to ensure that the business is able to continue trading. We also provide advice in relation to all aspects of security granted to financial institutions, including personal guarantees.

Review of Banking Facilities

If your company has entered into facility agreements with banks or other lenders, we are able to review the terms of such agreements to advise upon your potential liabilities and to assist with any refinancing requirements by putting you in touch with one of our many contacts in the financial services sector.
