Company & Commercial
Our Commercial team can assist with all aspects of running your business, from advice on setting up terms of trading and employment law to taking on commercial premises, partnership agreements and succession rights.
We can also assist with buying and selling a business whether as a sole trader/ partnership or as a company. Our experts can assist with company mergers and acquisitions and corporate joint ventures.
There are many forms of business ranging from being a Sole Trader to a Franchisee, a PLC to a Partnership. With each form comes a set of obligations imposed by the law – breaching those can be a criminal offence! If you need to set up in business our advice at the outset will make the difference.
Well managed companies and firms will be conscious of the need to keep up to date with terms of business, employment law, health and safety at work, environmental issues and matters such as lease renewals and property acquisitions. Again, Swayne Johnson Solicitors can make the difference in ensuring your obligations are met.
We work in close liaison with your other professional advisers to ensure that the advice given has the practical effect envisaged and ties in with your accounting, taxation and other plans.

If you are thinking of either taking over an existing establishment or setting up a new business which needs a licence, then come and see us first. With all the other arrangements to be made, it is tempting to leave some of them to the last minute, but if you leave the Licensing issues until too late, you might miss your planned opening date and lose out on badly needed cash flow. Remember – you will only need a short appointment to see one of our team and we will then be able to advise you about what is involved. We can then take care of all the paper work so that you have the Licence in good time.
We are members of the “Business in the Community” and the “Lawyers for Your Business” schemes and one of our directors is secretary to the Wales section of the British Institute of Innkeepers.
