Legal services for business

Our commercial lawyers work closely with a wide variety of private sector businesses, public sector bodies and charitable organisations, providing expert guidance on almost every aspect of the law.

What sets Clarke Willmott apart is that we recognise not only the importance of providing legally watertight advice, but also the need to support our clients’ corporate objectives and long-term goals.

We have particular expertise advising our business clients on complex and cross-border matters. For example, advising international companies seeking to operate and invest in the UK, and UK companies seeking to invest or develop their business internationally.
