made to measure advice for your business

SME Solicitors & Family Business Law

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are companies whose turnover or headcount falls below certain limits.
In the UK, SMEs are defined as companies who have a turnover of no more than £22.8 million, a balance sheet of no more than £11.4 million and fewer than 250 employees.

We have a long history of acting on behalf of family businesses or SMEs on a variety of matters throughout every stage of your business.

Alongside your financial advisors, banks, accountants, pension trustees and surveyors we work as a team to provide a practical commercial approach to suit your needs. Whether it is liaising with your accountant on a business start up, purchasing a property through a pension fund or considering commercial contracts and terms and conditions; we can take care of it all.

We believe in giving you the best service possible. With extensive experience in providing you with in-depth knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure the success of your business, we pay attention to each and every small detail.

Business isn't good, but I am stuck in my commercial lease with no way out

Not necessarily! If your lease contains a break clause, you may be able to leave provided that the correct procedures are followed. Always seek legal advice in plenty of time before the break date.

What is a break clause?
