We advise you fully upon all relevant provisions and developments in employment law.


The effective negotiation of commercial premises will mean that you may concentrate upon progressing the business safe in the knowledge that your trading premises are legally secure. Our Commercial Property Department assists with leases, freehold acquisitions and and sales.


From debt recovery commercial disputes, we will advise you upon the strengths of your claim or the case against you. In addition, the costs of litigation should never be disproportionate to the amount at issue and we will help you make a reasoned decision and ensure you are fully appraised of both the merits and risks of your case.
