What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Why Appoint Redkite Solicitors?

With offices spread across Cardiff, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, we are located in the right locations to work closely with your business. You can visit us for an informal chat and seek expert legal guidance on any matters that may have occurred.  Our specialist commercial legal team is approachable and they strive to ensure that business, as well as legal–jargon is prevented as much as possible.

It is always worth keeping in mind that once you instruct Redkite Solicitors’ specialist advisors they will not be working on their own. Our team is a supportive unit that builds on business expertise in multiple industrial fields as well as specialties in areas of business law. As such, you will also be able to get access to the best legal minds on the matter at hand, whether you are in a legal dispute or merely organising the business in such a way that it is on a solid legal foundation, for potential development.

Some businesses do not necessarily have an urgent need for legal services, however, it is often easier to be aware of your legal position, especially if you are branching out in terms of what your company is doing on an operational level. Under these circumstances, we will conduct an in-depth assessment of your business and functional needs from a legal point of view and ensure that you meet all of your regulatory responsibilities. Doing so will ensure that your business is fully registered and up to date. Potentially saving you from any future court proceedings.

If you would like a legal health-check or require professional advice for a specific legal service, contact a member of our team today.

Intellectual Property

Safeguard what belongs to your business

How do you protect the critical commodity? Intellectual property covers trademarks, privacy, design, copyright and patents. When you properly defend your intellectual property, you will be in a stronger position to deal with any infringements.

Securing Ownership

Ensuring that your company is completely protected by intellectual property is the main stage of the protection procedure. Businesses often neglect to assure that the intellectual property rights generated by third parties on their behalf, such as staff or consultants are correctly allocated.  Our experts will compile all the agreements that the company needs; ensuring that you own what you pay for. Our expertise encompasses all aspects of intellectual property legislation including:

  • Licensing and software
  • Online content
  • Research and development rights
  • Collaboration
  • Contractors

 

Joint Ventures

You will combine your money and skills as a joint venture team to accomplish a specific goal. You may want to set up a joint venture to expand your business, produce new products or drive new markets, particularly overseas.

MBOs and MBIs

If you are a management team interested in buying into a business or a shareholder looking to sell, our skills and knowledge will guide you along the path to a profitable deal that applies to both parties concerned.

Our experience covers:

MBOs

When a previous owner wishes to sell, the new management is often in the strongest position to buy them out and push the company forward.

MBIs

A management buy-in may be the answer to the dilemma if a company is under-performing, due to poor management. This is when new owners buy a company that includes new management.

Equity and Finance

Our experts can work for you, whether you are a lender, borrower or buyer so that you can take comfort in the fact that anything you do falls within the framework of legal compliance.

From guidance on private equity and debt financing to help raise funds for growth and success, we provide you with the support you need to achieve your goals.

Our expertise covers:

Cash Flow Management

When it comes to cash flow, steps such as discounting invoices, hiring purchases and lease arrangements may benefit.

Commercial Lending

Business borrowing also calls for complicated and lengthy infrastructure and security records. We make it simple for our clients to work with them, leading them from submission to submission via the funding process.

Investment Advice

In our experience, the goal is to find the best balance between the ability of a business to work without excessive intervention and the desire for the lender or investor to have adequate leverage of its funding or spending.
