Our Business Services

Our business lawyers in Birmingham cater to a range of issues. Each team has their own specialist solicitors to help you:

Our banking team acts on behalf of banks and borrowers to solve disputes affordably. They have 40+ years of combined experience advising major banks, commercial lenders and small and midsize businesses, so they have dealt with any issue. 

Business Recovery and Turnaround
If you need advice with corporate and individual insolvency or directors under attack after liquidation, our business recovery team can help. They have over 100 years of combined experience covering rescue and restructuring matters. 

Commercial Debt and Recovery
Debt recovery can be incredibly stressful, so our department offers calm and reliable advice to maintain your cash flow and manage your debtors. They can issue letters before action, trace absconding debtors, issue court claims, serve a statutory demand and provide several other services.

Their expertise is supplemented by our commercial dispute resolution and business recovery and turnaround team, providing even more experience. 

Corporate Law
Our corporate law team is one of the most established and renowned outside of London. They support up to fifty M&A transactions a year in the £1-£50 million deal size corporate mid-market and offer the latest corporate restructuring advice. For local, national and international businesses of any size, there’s no better choice for quick, clear and cost-effective solutions.

Employment Law
We offer employment law advice to ensure your workplace is compliant and prevent infringements. Our solicitors cover restrictive covenants, discrimination, and transfers of undertaking, as well as represent you in the Employment Tribunal and High Court litigation. 

Every year, we complete over 100 legal matters for clients overseas. We have built a network of operations spanning 40 countries in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Our full-time UK-based team interacts with these international partners to offer cross-jurisdiction support. 

Notary Services
There are a limited number of public notary offices in England and Wales, and we are proud to provide this service. We can sign official documents such as birth, death or marriage certificates, passports and qualification certificates.

Property Litigation
Property disputes affect owners, developers and property occupiers and often appear without warning. Amongst other services, we can help you renew or terminate a business lease, forfeit a lease or issue possession proceedings, recover unpaid rent and service charges, and serve or respond to a notice of dilapidations and disrepair.

Business Immigration
Working with the UK points-based immigration system and other immigration avenues can be difficult without legal support. Our business immigration team advises on the post-Brexit immigration routes and helps overseas businesses and visitors obtain vital visas.

Commercial Law
Our commercial law team acts for clients of all sizes and in various sectors, helping them protect their supply chain and sales channels. Alongside other services, we advise businesses on compliance with Data Protection, privacy and anti-bribery matters and discuss supply contracts and distributor agreements.   

Commercial Dispute Resolution
If you ever face a dispute or litigation, having expert legal support is crucial. Our commercial dispute resolution team has over 55 years of combined experience and ensures your business disputes are dealt with efficiently, so you receive the best outcome promptly.

Defamation risks damage to your business and reputation. We protect your reputation by pursuing or defending defamation proceedings and can advise in settlement negotiations.

Intellectual Property
Protecting your intellectual property ensures that your business stays ahead of your competitors. We can enforce your intellectual property rights, support licensing agreements and resolve copyright issues.

Planning Law and Regulatory Matters
For any professionals in development, we offer sound legal advice on contentious and non-contentious planning laws to ensure your building plan is legally protected. Our team has over 40 years of experience working in the public and private sectors, so they know every aspect of planning law and its impact.

Real Estate
