No matter your problem, we can advise you through all the clauses and hurdles involved in ensuring your business’s financial activities are all legally sound.
What is finance law?
Finance law in terms of business concerns how it interacts with all the regulations and legislation around the money side of operating a business.
Whether large or small, public or privately owned, a company will need to keep all its financial activities within the lines of the law.
How can a solicitor help my business with finance law?
It can be difficult to know all the legal ins and outs, as well as the processes and procedures that are involved with the financial operations of your company.
A professional finance law solicitor can ensure you don’t infringe on any legislation with your company’s financial activities, and even guide you through complex deals involving money – whether that entails negotiation, drafting documents like funding agreements, or working with an accountant to make sure everything is above board.
They can also provide a legal opinion on certain transactions, essentially helping to make sure your company doesn’t make an agreement with another firm or take on funding that could end up affecting it negatively.
They can, of course, even help defend your company against any money-based legal action that may be brought against it.
The result of working with a skilled finance law solicitor will be the confidence that your company has done all it can to avoid becoming involved in a legal issue that could cost it time and money, and place strain and stress on you, any other directors, and employees.
A solicitor can also be of use in all kinds of other instances where money issues and the law overlap, such as:
- Money laundering
- Bribery and corruption
- FCA investigations
- FCA and PRA regulations
- Forward funding
- Peer-to-peer lending structures
