Why Appoint Redkite Solicitors?
With offices spread across Haverfordwest, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, we are based in the best places to work closely with your business. This means you can visit a branch near you for an informal chat and seek expert legal advice on a matter that may have occurred. Our professional commercial legal team are personable and approachable and strive to ensure that business, as well as legal jargon, is avoided as much as possible.
It is also worth bearing in mind that once you instruct our specialist advisors they will not be working alone. Our supportive network is built on business experience in many industrial sectors as well as specialists in areas of business law. As such, you will always be able to get access to the best legal minds on the subject at hand; whether you are in a legal dispute or if you are to restructure your business in such a way, that it is sitting on a solid legal foundation for future growth.
Some businesses do not necessarily require an urgent need for legal services, but it is often safer to be sure of your legal position, particularly if you are branching out in terms of what your business is doing, on a functional level. Under these circumstances, we will undertake an in-depth assessment of your business and the practical needs, from a legal perspective, to make sure that you meet all of your regulatory obligations. Doing so would ensure that your business is fully compliant and therefore potentially save you from any legal challenges, further down the line, if it were subsequently discovered that this was incorrect.

Safeguard what belongs to your business
How do you protect the critical commodity? Intellectual property covers trademarks, privacy, design, copyright and patents. If you properly defend the intellectual property, you will be in a stronger position to deal with any infringements.
Ensuring that your company is fully owned by intellectual property is the initial 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 specialists will compile the agreements that your 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

If a business owner wants to sell, the current management is often in the strongest position to buy them out and move the company forward.
