The divide between chancery and commercial law is an increasingly fluid one. Our long-established Business and Property department reflects this in dealing with a broad range of disputes in the diverse fields of business, property, trusts and probate.
Particular specialities include: banking; bankruptcy and insolvency; commercial arbitrations; commercial fraud (civil); commercial and residential landlord and tenant; company; consumer credit; contract; corporate insolvency; court of protection; directors’ disqualification; directors’ duties; equitable remedies; entertainment law; financial services; franchising; guarantees; housing; injunctions; insurance; intellectual property; patents, designs, copyright and trademarks; mortgages; probate, the administration of estates and family provision; product liability; professional negligence; restraint of trade; sale of goods; trusts, settlements and wills; and VAT.
Our key objectives are to provide the highest quality of advocacy, advice and drafting together with a personal and approachable manner. A recurrent theme in feedback from our clients is that we achieve this by a mixture of intellect, judgment and encouraging solicitors to regard us as only a telephone call or email away.
Our success is shown by the fact that we have developed a strong sense of loyalty both to and from our professional clients. This is also reflected in members of our department being regularly recommended in guides to the profession such as Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500. Our department also includes two Part Time First Tier Tribunal Judges, four Junior Counsel to the Crown (Attorney General’s Regional Panel) and numerous former university lecturers.
We offer in-house seminars, typically on a weekday at 5pm. All our speakers are accredited by the Bar Council and The Law Society.
