Protect what belongs to your business
Intellectual property includes trademarks, privacy, design, patents and copyright. If you protect intellectual property correctly, you will be in a better position to deal with any violations.
The initial stage of the protection procedure is to ensure that the business is fully owned by intellectual property. Companies also fail to ensure that the intellectual property rights created on their behalf by third parties, such as employees or consultants, are properly allocated. Our experts will compile the agreements the company needs to make sure you own what you pay for. Our experience encompasses all facets of intellectual property laws including:
- Licensing and software
- Online content
- Research and development rights
As a joint venture team, you can combine your resources and expertise to accomplish a common goal. In order to develop your business, produce new products or push new markets, particularly overseas, you may want to set up a special venture.
Entering a joint venture is a huge decision, so you will need strong legal advice from a team with proven business experience.
We offer advice on all areas of joint ventures, including:
- General joint venture advice
- Advantages and disadvantages
- Joint venture set up
- Joint venture agreements
Mergers, Acquisitions and Disposals
Since we have comprehensive business transaction experience, we are frequently called upon to advise and assist clients in the complexities of what might be referred to as a “once in a lifetime” contract.
To purchase or sell a company or organisation means putting together the various aspects of a transaction in order to achieve a satisfactory conclusion.
We will manage the entire process including:
- Due diligence
- Sale and purchase agreements
- Property advice
- Employment law advice
- Pensions guidance
- Intellectual property issues
- Liaison with fund providers, accountants and tax advisers
MBOs and MBIs
When you are a management team interested in buying into a business or shareholder looking to sell, our knowledge and experience will assist you in directing you to a successful deal that appeals to all concerned parties.
Our experience covers:
If a business owner wishes to sell, the new management often finds itself in the best position to buy them out and move the company forward.
If a company is nonperforming due to bad management, then a management buy-in may be the solution to the problem. That is when new owners buy a company that requires new management.
Equity and Finance
Our experts will work with you, whether you are an investor, borrower or buyer, and you can feel safe in the knowledge that anything you do falls within the appropriate legal enforcement system.
From recommendations on private equity and debt financing to help raise funds for growth and development, we provide the quality advice you need to achieve your goals.
Cash Flow Management
Measures such as discounting invoices, hiring purchases and leasing agreements may benefit from cash flow management.
Business funding also includes extensive and complicated facilities and security records. We make it easy for our clients; we work closely with them and lead them through the funding process, from application to delivery.
In our experience, the aim is to find the best balance between a business’ ability to work without excessive intervention and the need for the lender or investor to have reasonable control over its funding or spending.
