Legal Briefing


THE Tollers corporate and commercial services team, led by Craig Harrison, specialises in providing practical and cost effective advice to owner-managed businesses on a wide range of legal issues that may arise at any point from the inception of a business all the way through to an eventual exit.

The team advises on structuring businesses efficiently, which can mean putting in place investment, shareholders or partnership agreements for new businesses or involve the reorganisation of an existing business.

Careful preparation and planning on these structural issues means securing that all-important exit when the business owner has an opportunity to sell or retire, is both more likely and an easier process.

As a team, they also advise businesses on a wide variety of legal matters that can arise during the lifetime of a business including: commercial contracts, regulatory issues, joint ventures, share options, acquisitions and corporate finance, right through to insolvency and corporate recovery. They are proud to assist owner-managed businesses and corporate clients to prepare for the future and to ensure that business risks are considered and appropriately protected.

As head of the corporate and commercial team, Craig's vision and focus over his first six months with Tollers has been to build on Tollers' successful history of supporting local businesses by establishing a cohesive team of business lawyers that deliver commercially astute, client-focused advice and who never lose sight of the fact that clients also face challenges and competition in their own businesses.

Tollers' corporate and commercial lawyers work very closely with specialist colleagues in other legal fields, including the employment, real estate, dispute resolution and restructuring teams to ensure they are able to offer a joined-up approach to often complex, multi-disciplinary legal challenges. In an ever-changing legal and regulatory landscape, strength in depth and true specialism has never been more important.

Craig said: "As a team we recognise that in such a fast-moving legal environment, clients often want much more than traditional legal advice. Commerciality in approach is what many clients demand and at Tollers we can deliver a seamless service with a commitment to providing solutions and ensuring that our clients make the most of their opportunities. We are conscious that investing in legal services is an important decision for business owners and at Tollers we strive to always consider the value that we are adding with the services we provide".
