SME Commercial Law

We understand business and we know what you need in a commercial lawyer.  If we do not already know you, we take time to learn about your business in detail and find out from you what you want in order to be able to provide you with the best and most appropriate advice and service.

Our aim is to be who you go to for advice you trust and this is perhaps more important in business than in any other area.  We want to build a strong business relationship with you, to provide you with the confidence that when the need arises you know who to call in the knowledge things will be taken care of.

We work primarily with the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector in many different fields providing a complete range of commercial legal services from straightforward contracts and advice to the acquisition and sale of businesses by either assets or shares and the associated negotiations, agreements and due diligence investigations.

Commercial Property

We have been working with clients dealing in and managing property in all sectors of the economy over the last 20 years: we know the commercial property business.

When we talk about commercial property, we are referring to everything other than owner occupier house purchase and sales, because we know that your property business does not necessarily fit into any one box and you need someone with the breadth of experience and knowledge to get the job done properly, whatever it is.

Whether you are an owner of an investment property, a commercial landlord, a business property owner or a tenant you can be confident that we will be able to look after you whether your property requirements involve purchase or sale, leases, landlord and tenant issues, bank re-financing or issues in relation to property rights and rights of way.

It goes without saying that, based in rural West Cork, we have very close links to the farming community and understand agribusiness. We have been work with and advising farming clients in relation to all aspects of agricultural property and farm business throughout our existence.

Commercial Litigation

While never welcome, as in any other walk of life, disputes sometimes arise in business. When they do you need the right people in your corner, that’s where we come in.  If we are involved early, we can advise you on how to nip disputes in the bud and on how best to avoid costly litigation.  If litigation becomes unavoidable, you need to ensure that you are on the right side of it and get clear and practical advice to ensure the best possible outcome and minimize the effect on your business.

Debt Collection

When it comes to managing your cash flow, we don’t need to tell you about the importance of controlling debtors. We know that the longer debts remain outstanding the less likely they are to be recovered; in business you need fast and effective debt collection procedures and that is what we provide.  We take an integrated approach to debt collection, advise clients on the types of terms and conditions with their customers that provide robust procedures when it comes to getting paid and give our clients the confidence to refer outstanding debts to us early in the knowledge they will be handled cost effectively before they become problem debts or worse.
