The needs of our clients differ and it is always our aim to offer advice based on a thorough knowledge of our clients’ businesses, understanding their commercial priorities and timescales and responding to their needs with prompt, practical and clear advice.
Often, we develop such a good understanding of our clients’ commercial operations that they virtually regard us as their in-house lawyers. With larger clients we work with their in-house legal team, assisting in negotiations and ensuring that contracts are up to date and appropriate.
In addition to acting for a wide range of SMEs, we also act regularly for multinationals on substantial contracts. We also advise on many international cross border and multi-border arrangements transactions particularly across Europe and in the United States.
Competition law is often overlooked in commercial transactions, intellectual property, dealing with distributors or sources of supply and the merging and disposals of businesses.

With the emergence of new sanctions, it is even more important for directors of companies to ensure compliance to avoid personal liability and possible imprisonment.

IT & E-Commerce
The internet, cyberspace, the virtual market, whatever you want to call it – it is the cheapest way of selling, promoting and marketing goods and services to a potential global market. However, it can be the most complex legally.
Laws are lagging behind the advance of technology and, with a global market, it is difficult to know which law applies. It is important to find lawyers who understand the application of traditional laws and the new e-commerce piecemeal laws. We have experience in all aspects of e-commerce.
Most of what we do in life is now governed by regulations. Health & Safety, environmental controls, noise pollution and a host of other pieces of legislation restrict the way in which we conduct ourselves both in the workplace and at home.
Nigel has helped many clients steer a path through the maze of regulations and has represented them when their actions (or inactions) have led to court hearings. Sometimes it is too late to avoid a court case but it is often the case that advice given at the outset of any venture can avoid the costs and sanctions which are brought about by a regulatory breach.
