Bespoke has extensive experience in advising on all aspects of corporate management and planning. In doing so, we work closely with boards and senior management to manage companies’ legal regulatory and commercial risks.
Our expertise includes:
Businesses of all sizes rely on Bespoke to advise them and manage risks by providing strategic legal advice and practical solutions in a quick and decisive manner. We help develop new and innovative transaction structures to meet our clients’ needs. Our client’s business is our business and our team strives to create shareholder value at all times. These attributes are born of our unique ‘in-house philosophy’.
Bespoke provides commercial legal advice to clients ranging from small to medium enterprises to multinationals and listed companies, and covering all aspects of commercial activity. We combine technical skills with commercial acumen and provide pragmatic and effective strategies to ensure your business operates with manageable levels of risk. Working with you to understand your business, we tailor practical commercial solutions specifically to your business needs.
We draft and negotiate a broad range of commercial contracts, advise on transactions, supply agreements and terms and conditions of trade, review existing arrangements, support day-to-day business needs and recommend steps to limit contractual exposure.
Preparation of contractual documents is an important element of risk management. We assist clients to identify contractual risks and manage liability. We also manage client risk by understanding the nature of proposed contractual arrangements and drafting agreements to provide certainty in contractual relationships.
We develop and advise on contracts to support new types of business, such as collaborations, alliances, partnering strategies or joint ventures. Joint ventures can be devised for business expansion, development of new products and services, or moving into new markets or jurisdictions.
As with any business venture, it is vital that the right structure is selected to operate the particular venture. It is also important to ensure that each owner or shareholder’s rights and obligations are legally enforceable. The business structure adopted should be evolutionary, contemplating the entry and exit of shareholders and the possibility of external funding and business expansion.
We provide commercial and corporate services relating to the entire life cycle of a business – from inception and start-up, through to fund raising, expansion and eventual exit strategies and implementation. We advise clients on the appropriate commercial vehicles, whether commercial trusts, joint ventures or corporate entities. We support all commercial activity with a full range of contracts and legal documentation.
