Your business

BPE can support you through every stage of your business and with every step of your company’s growth. We’re not just the legal help, we’re an integral part of your business team.

We’re really easy to work with and tailor how we work to suit you, not us. We don’t sit on the fence but will give you clear advice you can act on to protect and develop your business to its full potential.

Our dedicated team of corporate lawyers are experts in mergers and acquisitions, management buyouts and disposals involving public and private companies and other legal entities. From SMEs to AIM listed companies, our team advises and works with a wide range of regional, national and international businesses through every stage of their life cycle.

Make every decision with confidence. Whether you’re a start-up or a well-established company, the decisions you make now on a wide range of employment and HR issues can have a long-lasting impact on your business. Our clear, pragmatic advice will help you get those decisions right. Employment law can be complex and challenging, so it’s important to seek expert legal advice to protect your interests. Our Employment team acts for local, regional and nationwide firms on a wide range of legal and HR matters, from recruitment to restructuring to redundancy. We’ve also built a great track record in trade union relationships and successfully representing the interests of our clients at Employment Tribunals.


Regulations are part and parcel of the commercial landscape; they are the boundaries you should work within for your customers. Regulation is part of everyday life, affecting everything from how you package goods to how you advertise your services. You should ensure your business is armed to deal with any regulatory issues that come its way. Failure to comply can have serious consequences such as fines, bad publicity and in extreme situations, prison sentences.

Trading Contracts

The more businesses that you work with, trading and supplying products and services, the more important it is to have trading and supply agreements in place so you’re secure in the knowledge that your business, its commercial assets and your intellectual property are protected. These agreements are commonplace across most sectors as they set the parameters of your trading relationships.

The wide ranging experience, expertise and commerciality of our lawyers offers a broad business acumen v and personal approach valued by our Clients.

Commercial Litigation

There will inevitably come a time when you or your business becomes involved in a dispute.
