A trusted legal advisor to your business

No one ever said that running a business was easy. To achieve long-term commercial success an organisation must not only demonstrate an ability to market itself and sell effectively, it must also have the framework in place to sustain itself over time.

At Sweeney Miller Law our commercial team work closely with a broad range of organisations to help them achieve their goals. From acquiring premises to forming agreements with other organisations, we understand what it takes to keep your company running smoothly. Having a trusted law firm by your side can help you make short work of the hurdles that trip up many other organisations.

Why do I need a business solicitor?

Depending on the nature and size of your business the frequency with which you encounter legal issues can vary greatly. Yet even small enterprises that follow a very straightforward business model need to consult with qualified legal professionals at some point.

 

Working with a law firm may seem like a drain on resources, particularly for start-ups and micro-businesses that don’t always have the strongest cashflow. Yet it is important to remember that investing in the right legal framework for your company in the first instance can save significant costs further down the line. This is a principle that applies to organisations of all sizes.

At Sweeney Miller Law we often meet new clients who understand that they may need to take legal advice but are unsure about the best way to proceed. Our advice is always that prevention is better than a cure – both in terms of cost and impact on the daily running of your business.

For example, having the right shareholder agreement or commercial lease agreement in place from day one can prevent unwanted legal disputes and potentially costly court visits in the years that follow.

Within commercial law there are a number of sectors that we can assist you with. These include:

  • Commercial property
  • Commercial sales and acquisitions
  • Licensing
  • Commercial contracts

We prefer to build long-standing relationships with organisations. You may not need to call on us for months or even years at a time but our clients often say that simply knowing we are there if they need us is reassuring for them. As a growing law firm with specialist solicitors practising in a number of different fields you can be confident that we are able to advise, guide and even represent you in court – no matter what the world throws at you.

  • Kara, we would like to say a huge thank you for helping us with our sale and purchase. This was the first time we had sold and purchased a property, we had no clue as to what to do but your explanation of things and the communication you kept with us made it much easier. I would also like to thank David Turk, Zarah Rowntree, Emma Hunter, Isabelle Levitt and Chloe Slater for the work and correspondence in the last days before the completion and making the final few days go smoothly. We will definitely be requesting the services of Sweeney Miller and also recommending you to friends and family in the future.

    Mr and Mrs E of The West Midlands
  • I have used Sweeney Miller’s conveyancing services twice this year. Once to oversee the sale of my apartment & subsequently to manage all matters in relation to a complex housing purchase. Throughout, all staff I dealt with were knowledgeable, courteous and efficient in handling my case and the queries I had. 

    A law firm that takes pride in delivering excellent customer service.
