L500 Leading firm smallOur Commercial Team has grown considerably in the last 12 months to become one of the largest outside of London.  Our commercial lawyers and assistants provide advice and support to major national and international businesses operating across many different sectors including media, retail, education and research, environment and energy, transport and logistics, and technology and telecommunications.  In the public sector, we advise Central Government Departments and their agencies, as well as local government bodies on a diverse range of major strategic projects and commercial contractual matters.

Working from our network of offices across the South West, our Commercial Team works as one cohesive unit, to advise private and public sector clients throughout the South West, nationally and internationally.  As well as developing our own lawyers, we have recruited specialists with a proven track record of working at the highest level in City and major provincial law firms.

We aim to deliver a no-nonsense results focussed service in collaboration with our clients and based on an entrepreneurial and transparent financial engagement. 

Within our Commercial Team, we have recruited and developed teams of lawyers with specialist industry and sector expertise enabling us to provide better, more relevant advice.  Our Commercial Team brings together specialist units working in financial services, information technology and outsourcing, public sector procurement, major projects, intellectual property, brand protection and data protection, environment and renewable energy, licensing and gaming, and regulatory. 

Many of our lawyers have spent a considerable amount of time working in-house on secondment with public and private sector clients.  This enables us to offer a commercial insight as well as practical and technical excellence.  We are participators not commentators, and we deliver practical value-for-money legal solutions.
