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 organisation and its needs and aims, helping you to keep ahead of the game while protecting your interests.

Our Expertise

Recognising that an organisation’s solid foundations and informed decision making are key to its long term success, we are highly experienced in working closely with owners and senior management teams.

Typically we work with 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 briefings to boards of directors, trustees or governors as a whole.

We advise clients ranging from UK subsidiaries of multinational companies, through to large SMEs and family or owner-managed businesses, charities, schools and other education providers, landowners and developers and high profile venue and event operators. Our comprehensive range of legal services allows our clients to manage all of their private and commercial needs more effectively using a single law firm.

Our approach is not just partner led but relationship led. We aim to work with many businesses over the longer term and are committed to providing clear, practical, commercially focused and effective legal advice, a responsive and highly personal service and, crucially, value for money.

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 series of leading professional bodies. Our solicitors are regularly invited to speak at a range of events and many have featured as experts in the media, including on Sky News, BBC television and radio.

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