Commercial Law in London: FAQs

Commercial and corporate law are related but separate areas of law. Corporate law is concerned with the lifecycle of companies, mergers and acquisitions. Commercial law covers a broader practice including intellectual property, franchising and sometimes litigation. Both practices focus on issues concerning contract law.

Agreements made with a party within the UK should specify that they are subject to English law and that the English Court has jurisdiction to hear disputes. 

When it comes to choosing a corporate lawyer in London you are spoilt for choice. An ideal corporate or commercial lawyer is not only a law expert but has strong commercial instincts and a sound grasp of corporate finances. On top of this, you will want the personal skills to back up the legal expertise. A strong communicator that professionally delivers their service is a must. Of course, we recommend the dedicated commercial lawyers here at AJLO. They each bring an extensive wealth of knowledge to the table alongside a welcoming and friendly demeanour.

The appointment of a liquidator to take over the business and assets from the director can take one to two weeks. It can be quicker in cases where 90% of shareholders agree to short notice. 

The length of the winding-up can vary and is dependent on specific circumstances. To wind up a company, a liquidator must; release assets, handle staff issues and review claims from creditors. They must also carry out investigations into the company’s affairs to see if other realisations can be made.

Whilst some standard work may be charged at a fixed price, much of corporate law is charged on an individual basis. As the work and team required for even fairly similar work can vary broadly once you get into the specifics it is difficult to pinpoint the cost of corporate and commercial law work. However, this enables complete flexibility to offer a tailored service that addresses all of your needs.
