Legal Services for Business

At Pengelly & Rylands we understand the minefield of areas there are to manage when you run a business, and we are here to help. From initial start-up projects to larger industrial mergers and acquisitions, our dedicated team of corporate lawyers can advise and guide you on every aspect you require. Additionally we have the Human Resources element on hand for situations regarding employers or employees, as well as litigation teams for any property or professional disputes you may find yourself encumbered by.

For startups

Our experienced corporate and commercial lawyers can help you decide on the best legal structure for your business and undertake all the formalities required for its creation. We’ll help you secure your first commercial property, give advice on employment regulations and draft your terms and conditions of business.

Growing businesses

If your business is in stages of growth and development, we can advise you how to protect your assets and guide you through the mergers and acquisition process if needed. Exporting, distribution and supply chain arrangements can also be created or scrutinised to ensure your business is operating at peak level.  

If your team is expanding we can help you remain compliant in all areas of employment law and guide you in the right direction when it comes to incorporating partners, stakeholders and investors into your business.

Succession planning

You may receive an approach to buy your business, or you may be heading towards retirement and wondering if a management buy-out is possible.  You need to ensure that your business is fully ready in all areas for either of these situations and our team can help you do exactly that. Early preparation for exit is the key to achieving maximum returns when the time arrives.
