LAW firm Chadwick Lawrence – “Yorkshire’s Legal People” – has renewed its long-standing association with the Examiner Business Awards.
Having sponsored the awards from the beginning, Chadwick Lawrence is a prominent member of the regional business community.
And the firm believes in celebrating the success of local organisations – to recognise their achievements, encourage further economic growth and attract more investment to the Yorkshire area.
Chadwick Lawrence has offices throughout the region and is based in Huddersfield.
With 95 lawyers and almost 200 staff the company is one of West Yorkshire’s biggest law firms.
The company takes the opportunity to actively support regional initiatives.
It stages regular free seminars and training for local business and is a keen supporter of the Huddersfield Town Centre Partnership, taking a keen interest in promoting efforts to foster economic growth.
The law firm is also heavily involved with other business groups working to highlight current issues affecting the business community.
Jeremy Garside, managing partner of Chadwick Lawrence, said: “Working in partnership with our many commercial clients we quickly identify trends and issues affecting the region’s businesses – and as a result we work proactively with customers to address these.”
It is this approach that has led to Chadwick Lawrence having many long-term relationships with its commercial clients.
The team works predominantly with small to medium-sized businesses with up to a £40m turnover and is able to handle almost all aspects of business law.
The Chadwick Lawrence commercial services team is made up of three departments – corporate and commercial property, commercial litigation (including regulatory law) and employment law.
The growth and expansion of the team resulted in the opening of a new office in Wakefield in 2008.
Accessing the right advice at the right time is crucial for business owners who are faced with making important decisions about the future of their business or indeed in handling any other problems, challenges or dilemmas they may encounter.
The recent economic climate has brought new questions and challenges for property-based businesses. The launch of a specialist legal team to assist businesses with commercial property advice and risk management has proved invaluable in helping the owners of commercial property and landlords – or indeed tenants.
Specialist solicitors regularly handle cases in areas such as employment law, commercial contracts, commercial property work, employee compliance and training, disputes, licensing and planning, health and safety and much more.
With several offices throughout the region, Chadwick Lawrence covers the whole of West Yorkshire.
