Licensed Premises is a highly specialised sector of commercial law, which encompasses not only property procurement, but also business management issues, lease negotiations, employment law, employee tribunal resolution and even exit strategies.
As with every sector in which Sedgwick Legal operate, we pride ourselves in having developed a specialised knowledge of Licensed Premises, acquired through extensive negotiations on behalf of publican clients wishing to buy or lease premises, or offload them and also working direct with Breweries.
From public houses to members clubs, restaurants and nightclubs, Sedgwick Legal has developed an impressive knowledge base, enabling us to assist clients in every area of the Licensed Premises sector.
Whether it is acquiring premises on the most favourable and beneficial terms for our clients on a permanent or leasehold basis, bringing our formidable employment law skills to bear for a successful resolution on behalf of our clients, or developing a cost-effective exit strategy from a contract, our clients can be certain they are benefiting from the most proper and appropriate legal advice.
Unlike many large firms that suffer from acute staff attrition, Sedgwick Legal’s associates are retained on the basis of a measured and considered career plan. This means we avoid the kind of rapid staff turnover that can erode and ultimately undermine a business.
Instead, we give our people scope to specialise in their own legal areas, and develop a unique relationship with every client. This means our people acquire an insight into their business in order to deliver the most appropriate legal advice.
As a result, our clients know that their legal interests are being properly and professionally looked after, but that the solicitor or solicitors they are working with have a thorough knowledge of their business and can consequently deliver a tailored and value-for-money service.
That’s partly why you’ll find that Sedgwick Legal is one of a very exclusive number of North West law firms to be Lexcel Accredited.
