Expert legal advice for Business

Corporate and Business lawyers must do 3 things brilliantly for clients.

  • Secure growth opportunities to maximize profit
  • De-risk the business, keeping it out of trouble
  • Reduce cost

As business lawyers based in Richmond, London, our aim is to get the legals working for you and for your business. Business people as well as lawyers, we are comfortable with the numbers, we understand and speak the language
of business.

We deliver our advice in a way that suits your needs and your cash flow.
We can offer fixed price quotes on projects. We are geared for practical, commercial solutions (rather than litigation) and for your peace of mind.

What do you want from your corporate lawyer? Our CEO clients tell us that their business lawyers need to be "a trusted sounding board and advisor, commercially savvy, accessible and excellent at commercial negotiations".

CFOs and Finance Directors want to be sure they're not wasting money on expensive legal costs and insist that "every pound of legal advice counts towards their bottom line."
We agree.

The Legal Partners business law services are designed to deliver exactly this.

A clutch of surveys from Lloyds Bank earlier in 2015 shows business confidence increasing, with 43% of companies expecting increases in sales, orders and profits in 2015 and firms trading profits remaining resilient.

If growth is on your agenda, we ensure you get the very best deal in your major strategic projects, whether you are,

We communicate with you as you would like: e.g, by Skype, email, phone or face to face.
We make complex explanations simple using visuals & Powerpoint presentations.
We provide legal analysis on Excel spreadsheets, which is so much easier for Board Meetings, Business & Finance review and sign off, and well received as numbers are always involved.

Whether our role is to keep the business out of trouble, or negotiating for your success, you can expect to receive clear, practical, highly commercial advice from experienced City trained business lawyers, not juniors, who understand the needs of CEOs, CFOs and business owners.
