Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property, or IP, is central to any business; the idea or concept that you have spent valuable time and resources creating becomes the lifeblood of your organisation. Applying for Intellectual property protection and patents is the best way to protect your idea and your company’s future.

IT Services

With the growth of digital technology, the range of contracts related to software or hardware is increasing exponentially. It's also vital to ensure that your website remains up to date with the current regulation. We advise clients on various IT-related issues, from website legal support to drafting IT contracts. Whether you are an IT business that needs support selling its products, or a business wishing to secure IT support or purchase corporate software, we are ready to use our expertise to help your company.

Franchise Law

A franchise allows the franchisee to trade under the brand of the franchisor, following the franchisor’s proven business format. This allows brand owners to exploit their existing intellectual property and generate additional revenue without the commitment of further capital. For the franchisee the agreement lowers their risk through following a business model that has already been demonstrably successful elsewhere. Barnes Law with extensive experience can assist you in drafting and negotiating your next franchise agreement.

Employment Law

Employees are your company’s most important asset, but the ever-evolving digital world is changing workplaces rapidly. Our team of expert employment and HR lawyers work closely with you to offer tailored legal advice suited to your business’s needs. Our practice-oriented employment service ensures that your workforce is managed effectively and efficiently, regardless of the size of your organisation.

Corporate and M&A

Whether you are an established small or medium-sized enterprise, run a family business, or you are only just starting out with a business idea, well-drafted and clear ownership structures and governance arrangements are essential.

Businesses are always founded with optimism and excitement. However, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes things can go wrong down the line and leave you unprotected. Adequate arrangements can provide for what happens if, for instance, partners disagree on major business decisions, dispute to which extent each is responsible for running the business, or wish to exit the business altogether.

To prevent your relations with business partners (especially if they are friends or family members) from deteriorating and avoid costly legal disputes, Barnes Law can leverage its market insights to optimally structure your business in a way that is clear to everyone involved.

Commercial Property

Commercial property is essential to the functioning of many businesses. Property transactions often involve substantial costs and liabilities. That is why it is vital to negotiate and draft commercial property agreements with a high level of diligence. Barnes Law has detailed knowledge and experience in the commercial property sector that enables us to guide our clients through the complex legal framework whilst ensuring the needs of the business are met.

Business Legal Check-up

Our Business Legal check-up aims to minimise the risks that arise from professional relationships with partners, shareholders, employees, customers and authorities.

If you have not sought high-quality and regulated legal advice before and instead relied on online templates and self-help resources, our Business Legal Check-Up service can help to review the legal health and compliance of your business.

Arbitration

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution that parties can agree on while signing a commercial contract. That the decision of the arbitrator is a legally enforceable one distinguishes it from mediation or conciliation. In case your contract stipulates this form of dispute resolution, the Barnes Law team can advise you on the arbitration process and assist you with drafting the agreement to arbitrate.
