How we can Help
The corporate team at Lanyon Bowdler will not only assist you to achieve your objectives, but will identify risks of a legal nature and advise you how to protect your business from those risks as far as possible. What is more, we believe that it is difficult to isolate the legal aspects from the commercial aspects and therefore we prefer to be involved in a transaction as early as possible in your negotiations.
We also recognise the functions and importance of your other professional advisers involved in a transaction, such as accountants, surveyors and bankers. We will act as the co-ordinator of your professional team since we are ideally placed to do so.
We will also liaise with HM Revenue and Customs, the Registrar of Companies and regulatory bodies on your behalf.
It is our aim to shoulder as much of the legal burden for you, leaving you free to deal with getting on with running your business.
Why Choose Us?
Our corporate team compromises lawyers who have worked in large corporate departments in Birmingham, which has given them the experience and expertise, together with the availability of the necessary resources, to deal with corporate work of all types and sizes.
Our approach is to build an ongoing business relationship with our clients. When you first contact us we will visit you on a no cost basis to learn about and understand your business, its aims and objectives.
We believe this is the only way we can offer the most appropriate and focused legal advice and guidance.
We also offer a free legal audit of your business contracts to ensure that in a world where markets and regulations are constantly changing, you have the confidence that your legal documentation does what you want it to do.
Where necessary we work closely with other departments within Lanyon Bowdler and your professional advisers, to provide complete and rounded legal advice and solutions.
We seek at all times to be proactive rather than reactive with a “can do” attitude and culture.
We are committed to exceeding our client’s expectations at all times whatever the size of the job, as we recognise the retention of clients and our ever growing reputation, is the best way to grow our own business.
Above all, we want to act for the best businesses in Shropshire, Herefordshire and the surrounding areas and help them achieve their ambitions, and where necessary solve their problems.
We want to be the legal business partner of choice.
What Will It Cost?
We are transparent about our fees so there are no surprises at the end of the job.
We do not pretend nor seek to be the cheapest, and have no desire to undercut our competitors to buy in work as in our experience this only results in a diminishing return of quality and performance.
What we do offer, wherever possible, is fixed fees so you can properly plan your legal budget.
We can do this because of our experience and expertise. Once we have agreed the scope of your instructions we know from our experience what a job should cost.
Where for whatever reason we cannot give a fixed fee we will agree costs milestones, which will not be exceeded without a review of what further work is still required and what additional costs there are likely to be.
You will never receive a bill from us which has not been agreed.
