    Why Optimal Solicitors?

    We keep costs competitive

    Unlike other law firms, we rely on word of mouth – not expensive referrals. This means we’re able to offer our corporate law services at a reasonable price.

    We guarantee accessible legal advice

    We don’t confuse you with complex jargon. Instead, we unravel the law and put it into straightforward language you can apply easily to your situation. By helping businesses understand their rights, we make legal advice accessible.

    We adapt to your requirements

    We recognise that every organisation is different – so we champion flexibility, and make it convenient for you to get the legal advice you need. Whether it’s our opening hours or means of communication, we’ll adapt to the way you prefer to do business.

    What do corporate law solicitors do?

    Corporate law solicitors give expert legal advice tailored to your business. They deal with matters such as shareholder agreements and disputes, option agreements, company formation and dissolution, and joint ventures. Your solicitors will act on your behalf, putting together the relevant documentations and conducting any discussions.

    What’s the difference between corporate and commercial law?

    It can be easy to confuse corporate law with commercial law (otherwise known as ‘business law’). While corporate  deals with the company lifecycle, commercial law is much broader – involving legal matters around how an enterprise interacts with a third party. A corporate lawyer will deal with a company’s formation, for example, whereas a commercial lawyer will handle contracts for suppliers and employees.

    What can I do to make sure I win my case?

    If there has been some sort of disagreement, then it’s essential that you put together all the available – and entirely accurate – evidence to back up your case. Any other parties could be creating their own defence, so you should be able to effectively argue against it with detailed proof and a clear narrative of events.

    Do I actually need a corporate law solicitor?

    The answer to this is a straightforward ‘yes’. There is the option to either represent yourself or use a non-specialist solicitor, but business law is dynamic and requires the utmost expertise. A corporate law solicitor stays up to date and acts compliantly with all relevant legislation, so you can achieve the right outcome.

    What’s more, if you opt to work with the same solicitor throughout the growth of your business, they’ll understand your needs intimately. That means swifter and better support, saving you money in the long term.

    What does it cost?

    We believe that business law advice should be accessible and affordable to all. We offer an initial consultation to anyone who requires our help, along with fixed fees on all our services. Our support is also available on an hourly basis if you need a more flexible option.

    Take the next step with Optimal Solicitors

    We offer an initial consultation so that you can talk to us about your business needs in full confidence. We’ll empower you to better understand your legal rights, and use the time to go through how our corporate law solicitors can help you move forward.
