Corporate and Commercial Solicitors

When you instruct a lawyer to undertake an instruction for you, it is important that you have faith that your matter is being undertaken, efficiently and effectively, and not just when you chase. If you are going to spend your time chasing, there is little point in instructing lawyers to assist you. We understand this and so, when you instruct us to assist you, we do just that!

Primarily, this means we provide you with our advice. We must give you that advice, even if it isn't the advice that you want to hear. We don't like giving you advice that you would consider as 'bad news', but it is part of our obligation and duty to you (to provide this advice). For example, if you are pursuing a claim that looks capable of being challenged and thereby causes a change to the original risk assessment (meaning you could have a significant liability to meet if you are unsuccessful) we will tell you. You don't have to listen to our advice. You just have to acknowledge that you have received it. This is our job as your advisor. By having this advice, it enables you to make an informed decision as to how you want to proceed. Conversely, if it is a good deal or for example, a “clean title” and the matter can and should proceed, then we will progress it for you. Our commercial lawyers in Leicester do not mislead clients to gain profits.

As the most reliable legal firm that offers the services of corporate solicitors in Leicestershire, we concentrate on the important elements of our instruction and we get it over the line.

Believe it or not, although we take great pride and enjoyment in being lawyers, we enjoy it more assisting our clients to achieve what they set out to achieve.

Although we will always do what we can for you, the decisions (whatever they are) will always be yours. This is because our instruction will never be our claim, our property or our transaction. Our duty is to you, as our client. However we will represent you as if it was our dispute, our money, our transaction. Due to this approach, you will know where you are from the onset because we will talk to you in a way that ensures you understand, because this is nothing more than we would expect were the roles reversed.

We like to think of ourselves as knowledgeable in our fields of Commercial Property, Intellectual Property, Insolvency and Commercial Litigation. On an annual basis, the property transactions we undertake range from £350,000.00 to £25,000,000.00 and our contentious department deals with disputes ranging from £50,000.00 to £15,000,000.00.
