Company & Commercial
Most of our clients are small and medium sized enterprises or owner-managed businesses. Like them, you need to know that your interests are protected whilst you carry on with the task of running your business.
We will talk you through the practicalities in plain English and agree a sensible, commercial solution to the issues at hand, whether that may be a shareholders’ agreement, a change to your corporate structure, dealing with a troublesome business partner or setting up a brand new business.
We try not to take the ‘taxi-meter’ approach to legal fees – we want you to be able to pick up the phone at any time, knowing that the cost is included in our initial quote. We hope that you find our approach reassuring and refreshing.
Our Corporate and Commercial Team works with our Employment, Commercial Property and Dispute Resolution teams to ensure that you receive a seamless professional service.
Our specialist team of company commercial solicitors can assist in a wide range of matters, including:
- Sales, mergers & acquisitions
- Shareholder agreements and company structures
- Partnership and LLP agreements and advice
- Commercial agreements
- Confidentiality agreements
- Intellectual property rights – trademarks, designs, copyright, licensing
- Terms of trading and supply of goods, including e-commerce
- Shareholder and directors disputes
- Company law and procedure

What Our Customers Say
Claire advised my mother on her accountancy matters and was very helpful when it came to dealing with her estate. Claire has now advised me for a number of years and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
On all occasions I have been most grateful for the friendly approach taken by Emma Oakley together with her efficiency and professionalism. She deserves all the praise due to her.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help in helping us to move into our new home. It made such a difference that you always responded so quickly to our emails and calls, especially when our plans had to change.
I could not have wished for a more professional advisor than Jane Couch who dealt with my case with the utmost efficiency. Also her assistant Kirsty White. A good team I couldn’t thank them enough.
I was a bit nervous about using Skype for the first time due to lockdown but Penny put me at ease and said it’s a new experience for her. Very friendly and professional.
I must say I’m really impressed with the speed and efficiency of WBW. This must be one of the fastest house sales I’ve ever heard of!
We found Fiona Luscombe friendly, extremely helpful, thorough (with a profound knowledge of her subject) and accommodating. We hope that all our future dealings with WBW will be with her – a totally satisfying experience!
Sam was very approachable and easy to talk to regarding my mortgage. She totally understood my needs and was able to advise me clearly as to my options. I will definitely use Sam again.
Laura was so patient but driven and again kept me focused, ensuring I understood the complete picture. Laura has a great skill in explaining regulations in an understandable way. I have been left feeling supported and most importantly that the right decisions have been made after clear guidance given. Laura is a breath of fresh air, so professional, confident and empathetic.
Typically, selling/buying a house can be stressful, but not this time. I simply cannot fault Lucy. She has been incredible from beginning to end. Even when I’ve emailed at 17:15, I had reply within 5 minutes – every single time. When we encountered issues with the other parties, Lucy kept us updated and offered the best solution, which was superb. I will be buying properties in the future and I will not be using anybody other than Lucy. An absolute credit to WBW.
Catherine has helped us enormously in obtaining compensation from a telecoms(broadband) company who damaged our private land and trespassed on our land. She has shown tremendous determination, drive and commitment in helping us, often going above and beyond. We are very grateful indeed and would strongly recommend Catherine. We wish her every success in her chosen career.
Lovely experience, Sarah Witheridge is what every property solicitor should be, thoroughly recommended to all friends and clients.
