Solicitors For Your Business

Commercial & Regulatory Solicitors

Specialist solicitors in our established Corporate and Commercial team, based in Reading and the Thames Valley, advise on key commercial and regulatory issues that can impact on your business and its operations.

Working closely with your business, we add value by helping to manage the risk in your commercial relationships with customers, suppliers and other parties, and to exploit the opportunities in such commercial arrangements.

Our proactive, practical and commercially-focused advice will not restrict your business'  operations or tie it down in ‘red tape’. We are experienced in working with clients across many sectors and ranging from UK subsidiaries through to SMEs, owner-managed businesses and professional partnerships . We can draw on that breadth and depth of experience to ensure that our advice is tailored to the requirements of your business and the issues that you face.

On the regulatory side, we work with organisations to help you navigate your way through increasingly complex and burdensome regulation that can impact on all commercial aspects of your business.

We routinely deal with regulators and enforcement agencies (including Trading Standards, the Charity Commission, the Environment Agency and the Advertising Standards Authority) and we represent those involved in regulatory investigations or prosecutions.

The depth and breadth of our knowledge and expertise is reflected in The Legal 500 and supported by the expertise in our other teams. We provide a comprehensive range of legal services to businesses and their owners or management teams, allowing you to manage both your private and commercial needs more efficiently and effectively using a single law firm.

As members of the international Law Firm Network , we can also advise overseas clients on doing business in the UK.
