Commercial Services

The smooth operation of your business requires practical advice that will help you to get the details right, allowing you to get on with running your business.

Whether you have grown your business from the ground up or are leading a large organisation from the front, running a business successfully requires access to expert, commercially informed legal advice, both to protect your assets and ensure that your practices and operations are legal and compliant.

Our Commercial team is experienced in helping business of all sizes to successfully navigate legal and compliance issues. But more than this, we will add value to your business by combining acute legal expertise with commercial savvy to help you to identify opportunities early and mitigate risks before they become problems. We understand how business works at all levels, how individual businesses grow and the challenges they face in pursuing their goals.

Our lawyers have worked with businesses across the spectrum, from publically listed companies to partnerships, start-ups and sole traders, and across a range of sectors, including recruitment, healthcare and dental, travel, media, IT and technology and financial services. We understand the specific challenges businesses in these and other sectors face and will help you to tackle them head on. And, because we are part of a substantial, full-service legal practice, we can draw on the expertise of colleagues in other legal specialisms such as employment and property when your business needs further support.

Choosing a legal team is important. You want a team that you know you can trust and who will support you throughout the lifecycle of your business. At Morrisons we aim to develop long-term relationships where we can work as a trusted partner in your success. Recognised by both of the UK’s leading legal directories, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, our Commercial team sits at the heart of our local business communities in South West London and Surrey.
