Commercial Law FAQ

What is the best legal structure for my business?

When starting a business, choosing the right legal structure is one of the most important decisions you will make. This is not an area in which one-size-fits-all, as the right business structure will depend on how you plan to operate, the size of your company and the industry you work in.

In most cases, you will want to choose between operating as a sole trader, a partnership, a limited company or a limited liability partnership.

Each comes with their own tax implications, regulatory requirements, risks and opportunities so a thorough assessment of your plans, both short and long-term, will be essential in making a decision. Our experienced commercial law solicitors can provide strategic advice regarding business legal structures and help you to identify which is right for you.

What are the key risk areas in a merger or acquisition?

Inevitably, any corporate deal involves risk. The success of the deal relies on a shared vision, realistic planning, skillful negotiations, strong leadership and a heavy focus on value creation throughout the entire process.  There is also the integration to consider: will both businesses be able to work together harmoniously? Could the coming together of two workplaces be detrimental to productivity in the initial stages?

All of these deciding factors will play a key role in your decision to buy or merge with another company. If you have decided your business is ready to take on a corporate transaction, gaining advice from an experienced corporate and commercial law solicitor is key in forming a fool-proof strategy that will see your profits grow as a result.

We have the experience and specialist knowledge necessary to protect your interests. With passion and determination, our corporate and commercial solicitors will be there every step of the way to advise you through negotiations, planning and execution.

Why is it important to have terms and conditions of business in place if I am a supplier?

Standard terms and conditions of business are often given a low priority by businesses and may only be given detailed consideration when a dispute arises, by which time it may be too late. In the meantime, businesses may be issuing quotations or processing orders using terms which are out of date, unsuited to the business’ current needs or simply copied from terms used by the business’ competitors. As a supplier, you must ensure that your liability is limited in the most appropriate way so that risk to the business is effectively managed.

It is vitally important that you do not wait until you require payment from a customer or are threatened with litigation before you review your terms and conditions. If your business does not have any terms and conditions at all, we can evaluate your requirements and draft appropriate and legally sound terms and conditions for a fixed fee.
