What do commercial law solicitors do?

A commercial lawyer deals with all things associated with the running of the business. They draw up agreements and contracts, support with licensing, and help resolve payment disputes. Commercial law solicitors also act on your behalf in negotiations and discussions, helping you to achieve the best outcome.

What’s the difference between commercial and corporate law?

Many believe commercial and corporate law to be interchangeable. While they’re not the same, they’re not completely separate either: corporate law is a part of commercial law. The latter covers transactions with third parties, whereas corporate law is specifically associated with the business’ life cycle. You’d turn to a commercial lawyer if a customer was refusing to pay you, for instance, and to a corporate lawyer for something like shareholder agreements.

What can I do to make sure I win my case?

Winning a dispute is never a guarantee, so putting together a clear, detailed account of what happened, along with any concrete proof, is critical. Your solicitor can advise on what evidence is needed to support your case, as well as counter any claims of the opposing party.

Do I actually need a commercial law solicitor?

There’s nothing stopping you from representing yourself in legal cases. However, a commercial lawyer can be invaluable – both in reaching an agreement quickly and cost-effectively, and keeping you compliant with ever-changing legislation. Our solicitors are experts in their areas too, working tirelessly to support you in achieving the greatest possible outcome. By working with the same team for anything related to commercial law, you’ll benefit from better, faster support when it matters.

What does it cost?

We believe any business should be able to access legal help at a cost-effective price, which is why we offer a free initial consultation to scope out your requirements. We have fixed fees on all our legal services, along with an hourly rate for those needing a more flexible approach. Our full pricing is available here.
