Business law

Wherever you are in your business lifecycle, you need to ensure that your business continues to comply with the latest legislation.

At Woodfords Solicitors, we invest time in getting to know your business and your ambitions in order to provide highly tailored legal advice – enabling you to concentrate on building your business or selling it on, so that you can retire.

Throughout Fulham, Chelsea, Putney and Hammersmith we work with a wide variety of owner-managed businesses and SMEs who benefit from our braod range of services for their business, their property and their family.

Commercial contracts

All businesses need a robust set of contracts tailored to the nuances of that particular business. Typical contracts that we would advise on include:

  • Terms & conditions of business
  • Agency and distributorship agreements
  • Joint ventures
  • Shareholder or partnership agreements
  • Web site terms
  • Bank guarantees
  • Confidentiality undertakings
  • Franchise agreements

Business transactions

Having built up your business, one day you will wish to realise the return on investment and sell it on – either through the sale of shares or assets. It is important to plan for this well in advance, to “groom” your business and get it into top shape in order to maximise its value.

As soon as you start to thinking about selling even a part of your business, it is important to speak to us at the earliest opportunity.

If you are planning to expand and are looking to purchase another business or enter a joint venture then we can advise you on this too – negotiating the contracts and carrying out due diligence research into the business you propose to acquire.
