SUPPORTING BUSINESSES FOR OVER A CENTURY
Commercial law solicitors
Mackenzie & Dorman, providing business legal services and commercial conveyancing to small and large firms throughout Belfast.
When it comes to business law and commercial property, we provide round-the-clock support and legal advice.
Running a successful business is not easy, by any means! You have to possess drive, know-how, a dash of courage and the confidence that your products, services and people are of the highest possible standard and ability. But with every business venture comes the red tape, the legal documentation, the established processes and regulations to which you must adhere… and that’s where we come in. Our commercial and business practice covers many areas, including the buying and selling of businesses and business property, as well as the preparation of leases, tenancies, and licensing agreements.
We take the time to understand your business and your requirements to ensure that our advice is tailored to your needs and in line with current legislation.
We provide a comprehensive service in business legal advice,
which includes but is not limited to:
Commercial property law
The property you run your business from can be a decisive factor in your ability to operate successfully. Whether we are helping you negotiate the right contract terms, assisting with leases and licensing, or providing notarial services, we will be your constant source of support. We work with a variety of businesses, including private landlords, small local businesses and larger firms with multiple sites.
Hiring staff, keeping them safe in the workplace, protecting their rights, and ensuring pay, benefits and grievances are appropriately handled… employment law can be a minefield. Thankfully, at Mackenzie & Dorman we keep you in the know. We empower businesses to ensure HR matters, employee documentation, disputes, maternity pay, pensions, and many other areas of employment law are handled appropriately.
Business acquisition and disposal
When acquiring a business, selling a business, or going through the process of disposal, there’s a lot to consider. There’s a lot that could pop up unexpectedly, and that means there are plenty of things that could go wrong if you are not suitably prepared and ready to respond. Whether it’s a franchise, a merger, a buy-out or a buy-in, we will be your constant source of legal support, knowledge and advice.
Administration and duties
It’s important that every business be built on the right legal foundations. That means having the correct documentation in place from the very start and ensuring you remain abreast of any changes in law that could affect you or your customers. Whether you are a sole trader, partnership or limited company, we will ensure you always know what is expected of you from a legal perspective, giving you the best chances for growth and success.
