We help businesses set up and grow in the UK including assistance with obtaining VAT registration and bank accounts, advice on immigration for employees coming into the UK, terms and condition of trade, intellectual property, tax and leases of office or warehouse space.
World class international relationships
Through our relationships with the World Services Group and International Bar Association we can locate the right lawyer with the right expertise to provide pragmatic and cost-effective advice in whatever language is suitable.
Not only do we help businesses set up and grow in the UK, we are also experienced in handling cross-border M&A and joint ventures, acting for corporates, institutions and funders of all kinds in their inward investment strategies and transactions.
This is complemented by our dispute resolution team who are experts in multi-jurisdictional litigation and international arbitration.
Doing business around the world has become increasingly more difficult
Whilst there is a global economy inter-connected by technology there are also trade barriers.
Companies have grown in a global environment and benefited from entering new markets where their products or services have been attractive to local businesses and consumers alike. However further growth has slowed due to trade tensions, Brexit and erosion of business and consumer confidence.
There will always be issues affecting global trade and our teams are on hand to help companies and individuals navigate the way through them.
Expansions beyond the UK
We also assist UK businesses with their expansion strategies outside of the UK. We work closely with the Department for International Trade (DIT) to identify the best areas or marketplaces to sell their products, offer advice on exporting, franchising, licensing or setting up a company in an overseas jurisdiction.
