Solicitors For Your Business

Legal services can be a key factor in the success of any business. With offices in Reading, Henley-on-Thames and London, our specialist solicitors will work closely with you to understand your business, its needs and aims and the challenges and opportunities that may lie ahead, to help ensure that you keep ahead of the curve and your interests are protected.

Solicitors for Your Business in Reading & Henley-on-Thames

We have significant expertise and experience in advising clients including UK subsidiaries, SMEs and owner-managed businesses, charities, universities and schools, landowners and developers and venue and event operators, with annual turnovers ranging from under £5 million to more than £100m.

Typically, we work alongside business owners, chief executives, directors and the relevant experts in their teams, whether that is in finance, legal, HR, operations or the commercial field. We also regularly provide training and guidance to boards of directors, trustees and governors.

We aim to represent you over the longer term and are committed to providing comprehensive, commercially focused and cost-effective legal advice and a highly personal and responsive service. Our successful approach is evident in the excellent feedback that our clients kindly continue to share, so you can be confident that you and your business are in the very best hands when it comes to legal advice.

Many of our clients have trusted us to provide commercial legal advice and support throughout the lifetime of their businesses; in some cases across decades. We are equally well versed in stepping in at a crucial moment for you and your business, whether you are seizing an opportunity, concerned about risk or tacking an urgent dispute.

As members of the international Law Firm Network, we can advise clients with overseas operations, as well as those looking to do business and invest in the UK.

The full range of expertise across our firm means that we can also advise business owners and leaders on private client matters, where relevant, including in relation to Wills and estate planning and residential property.

Our extensive expertise and experience in acting for businesses is recognised in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, and our solicitors are members of, and accredited by, a range of leading professional bodies. Our team regularly attend and speak at leading events and many have featured as experts in the media, including on Sky News and BBC television and radio.
