Expertise

What services do we offer?

When you are engaging in a Commercial deal, you want the security of knowing that the deal will be progressed. Simply put, where we can do so, we will get the deal done for you. However, not all deals are as good as they are initially perceived to be and if we think that overall it is not a good deal for you, we will tell you. That enables you to make a commercial decision as to what you want to do. Where it is a viable deal, we don’t waste time (because time is money), we concentrate on the key components of the deal and we get it over the line. Although we enjoy being lawyers, we obtain more enjoyment in assisting our clients achieve what they set out to achieve.

Whilst it will never be ‘our’ deal, we will treat it as if it was our money or our deal. You will know the risk from the onset because we will talk to you on a straightforward basis.

We are experts at corporate transactions with typical deal range being between £500k to £5million. It is as a team what we do (about 200 a year) and we do it very well.

Insolvency

Whatever may be said of insolvency, it is an unfortunate outcome that businesses and individuals alike can often suffer. The simple test for insolvency [whether as a company or an individual] is whether or not you are able to meet your debts as and when they fall due. If the simple answer is “no”, then one of the required grounds has been met and insolvency proceedings may follow.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

There are very few matters that are not capable of resolution without the Court’s involvement. Given the subsequent cost and risk of utilising the Court process in England and Wales [because we have an adversarial system and so, the successful party is entitled to recover their reasonable legal fees from their Opponent] and the increased Court fee2, there is a big preference for Parties to engage in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

Sports Law

Sports law is an amalgamation of laws that apply to athletes and the sports that they play. More often than not, Sports law is conceived to be the “glamourous” area of law and it is still growing and developing because it isn’t a bespoke, single ‘task’. As a Sports lawyer, the role covers a variety of matters – everything from contract, tort, Intellectual Property Rights, Representation (for agency and employment matters) personal injury, employment , tax issues and defamation.

Intellectual Property

As a business, you shouldn’t underestimate the significance of IPR – in many cases your IPR can become a valuable business asset. Certain IPR has the ability to be exploited to help raise further finance (from the Bank or other external investors) as opposed to potentially having to provide a Personal Guarantee; it can be licensed out (enabling you to receive a royalty) to a manufacturer or used under a franchise license.
