Our expert team can advise you on the full spectrum of business matters.
At The McKinstry Company, we know how important small and family businesses are to our economy and to the entrepreneurs who run them. As a law firm for life, we work with many small and family businesses. We know that the people behind these companies work hard and need practical, pragmatic legal advice. This is a service we pride ourselves on. Below we list some of the key areas in which we can offer your small business support. If you have a particular issue you would like to discuss, do not hesitate to get in touch. Our friendly, diligent and dedicated team are on hand to assist.
Litigation and Dispute Resolution
When there is a contractual breach or a business relationship breakdown, it is important that small businesses carefully assess their dispute resolution options. Our team of specialist negotiators and litigators can advise you on how best to resolve a dispute and whether it is necessary to raise a court action. While this process can seem daunting, we are experts in this area of law and are happy to litigate on your behalf to protect your interests.
Commercial Property Advice
As a small business owner, you may own or rent a commercial property. We have a dedicated property law team who can assist you in buying, selling and leasing property. We can negotiate documents on your behalf, manage the rent review process and offer general advice concerning the operation of your commercial property.
Employing staff is a hugely rewarding part of any business. It can also be challenging if not managed correctly. We can advise you on all matters of employment law – from staff contracts to dealing with contentious matters or dissatisfied employees. It is important that small businesses ensure that they are well-versed in this area of law – and we are on hand to provide this essential service.
For any small business, it is essential that you carefully consider how your business will operate in the future. It may be that you should consider succession planning to your children, or you may want to consider selling your business as you approach retirement. We can offer advice tailored to you and your business which will assist you in making any decision about the future of your company.
