Safeguard what belongs to your business
How do you defend a vital commodity of yours? Intellectual property covers trademarks, privacy, designs, copyright, and patents. When you adequately protect your intellectual property, you will be in a stronger position to contend with any infringements.
Ensuring that your company does completely own intellectual property is the initial stage in the protection procedure. Businesses frequently neglect to assure that the intellectual property rights generated by third parties on their behalf, such as staff or consultants, are correctly allocated. Our specialists will compile the agreements which the company needs to ensure 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
You’ll combine your money and skills as a joint venture team to reach a specific goal. To grow your business, produce new goods or push into new markets, especially overseas, you may want to establish a joint venture.

It’s a significant choice to enter a joint venture and you’ll need solid legal guidance from a team with a true commercial awareness.

Since we have extensive experience with business transactions, we are routinely relied upon to advise and assist clients through the nuances of what might be a “once in a lifetime” deal.
Purchasing or selling a business or organisation means bringing the many facets of a transaction together to a satisfactory conclusion.
Our emphasis is on providing accurate and strategic advice to make the deal happen, always operating under tight deadlines.

- Property advice
- Employment law advice

MBOs and MBIs
Whether you’re a management team interested in buying into a company, or a shareholder planning to sell, our expertise and experience will direct you through the legal path towards a professional, successful transaction that appeals to all parties concerned.
Our experience covers:
If a business owner wants to sell, the current management is often the ones in the strongest position to buy them out and move the company onward.
If a company is underachieving owing to bad management, the solution to the problem may be a management buy-in. This is when new shareholders purchase a business that includes new management.
Equity and Finance
Our specialists will work with you, whether you are a lender, borrower or investor, so that you can take comfort in the knowledge that everything you do comes within the framework of legal compliance.
From guidance on private equity and debt financing to help raise funds for growth and progress, we will provide you with the relevant support and advice you need to reach your objectives.
Cash Flow Management
When cash-flow is a concern, measures such as discounting invoices, hire purchasing and leasing agreements could benefit your business.
Borrowing for business also calls for complex and lengthy infrastructure and security records. We make it easy for our clients to operate with them, directing from submission to draw down through the funding process.
In our experience, the aim is to strike the right balance between the ability of a company to work without excessive interference and the need for the lender or investor to have sufficient control over its financing or expenditure.
