About us

A legal partner you can rely on

Since 2007, businesses in the UK and beyond have trusted us to be their legal partner.

Here’s why…

We’re always in your corner

We’re more than just your legal advisors. We really get to know your business: The challenges you face. The direction you’re heading in. The detail that helps us understand your bigger picture.

We’re on your team and we work alongside you to help you achieve your goals.

We know our stuff and we get things done

The legal demands that come with running a business can feel complex, but working with us isn’t.

We unravel the complicated stuff so you don’t have to, using our in-depth knowledge of commercial, corporate, commercial property, employment and intellectual property law to give you practical advice and the results you need.

We’re also plugged into a wide network of advisors who specialise in areas outside of business law, and can bring them on board when you need them. We’ll make sure you always have the right people on your side to get the job done. 

Corporate and commercial solicitors, without the corporate nonsense

Large corporate law firms can pass you from pillar to post and confuse you with legal jargon and complex fee structures. We speak plain English and our pricing is clear and transparent. No fuss, just a friendly, approachable team who’ll feel like an extension of yours.

A team I could trust to safeguard the future of my business

“I had complete confidence in the team from our first meeting; they understood exactly what I was looking for and were supremely professional, helpful, well-organised and supportive.”

Ruth Huxley, Founder, The Great Cornish Food Store
