Business Legal Services - Coronavirus Update
We know that running a business at the moment is probably the hardest it’s ever been for various reasons. We are here to help and we are only a phone call away. Appointments can be taken over the phone to assist with initial guidance.
The majority of the business legal team are now working successfully from home, in line with government guidance, with full access to the systems they need. Our main switchboard and administrative functions continue to operate as normal.
If you are a commercial tenant, and cannot afford to pay their rent due to Coronavirus, you will now be protected from eviction until the end of the year. If you are a commercial landlord or tenant and need advice regarding lease options then please get in touch.
The government have put several measures in place to support businesses at this time and you can find a summary of them here:
We have helped several local businesses secure their Government business loan, where the bank has asked for a charge/debenture to be put in place. Our team are here to help with you advice on the loan terms, financial forecasts, guarantees and charges (debentures).
Should you need any advice on loan secuity or on any of the business measures, then please get in touch with our team. Don’t forget we have a Dispute Resolution and Employment Law team as well who may be able to support you also, depending on the nature of your problem.
With the furlough scheme being extended and on-going decisions around
