Corporate and commercial law

Achieving successful commercial objectives involves collaborating with lawyers who understand your business, your commercial environment and your expectations for the future. Your lawyer should act as your business partner, offering advice to help you make better business decisions.

This requires people who can explain complex situations in plain English, provide dependable and accurate information, anticipate and manage risks, and develop solutions to get you a profitable outcome.

Employment law affects businesses at all levels. You need expert advice from employment lawyers to ensure you’re complying with key legislation, such as the Employment Relations Act 2000, the Holidays Act 2003, the Health and Safety at Work Act and other minimum code legislation.

When workplace issues occur, our employment lawyers will work with you to find a swift solution for all parties concerned. You should also always consult an employment lawyer in times of change, such as restructuring, making redundancies and all other employment aspects of mergers and acquisitions.
