At Ashersons our Commercial team provides proactive and commercially focused advice to a diverse range of clients, ranging from start-up businesses to listed companies and institutions.

Commercial law, also known as business law, is the body of law that applies to the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales. It is often considered to be a branch of civil law and deals with issues of both private law and public law.

With our expertise and commercial awareness, we specialise in advising on commercial negotiations, contracts and transactions spanning a wide range of sectors, including:

  • Business Law
  • Commercial Property
  • Competition Law
  • Franchising
  • Liquor Licences
  • Contract Law
  • Advice on complying with new legislation including the Consumer Protection Act and National Credit Act

We recognise the need to project-manage transactions and, whenever there is a deadline to meet, we provide the drive and resources to ensure it is achieved. We assist our clients in realising their objectives by adding value in the most practical and cost-effective way and, above all, by our commitment to the success of the deal.
