Chambers & Partners, 2010
There’s no doubt that the world of entrepreneurial business is fast-paced and demanding, and one of our key strengths is a firm-wide understanding of legal, commercial and personal challenges faced by you and your business every single day.
Running a successful business is often tough, but with our practical, experienced and cost-effective approach, we aim to find a solution to legal issues – along with a clear route that will allow you to deliver that result.
Our success is based on experience, knowledge and versatility. For every one of your requirements, we draw together a bespoke group of Farrers legal experts to collaborate and work on the best possible solution. These experts often lecture and publish on business and commercial issues, and are ranked as leading individuals in the Chambers and Legal 500 directories.
We have considerable experience advising on a wide range of issues including:
Corporate: all aspects of the development and growth of a business including fund-raising and acquisitions, as well as exits, restructuring and floats.
Personal Wealth: private issues including tax planning, creation and management of trusts (on and offshore), wills and succession, family-limited partnerships and family constitutions.
Brand Management: constructive and creative ideas to assist you in developing your brand strategies – in particular, product licensing and other brand exploitation agreements, including sponsorship, franchising and commercial joint ventures.
Employment: all employment-related matters, including contracts, incentives and options as well as disciplinary issues, change management, disputes and TUPE issues.
