Commercial Law

Andrew Park has 40 years’ experience in legal practice as a solicitor.  For most of that time he has concentrated exclusively on company & commercial work for business clients, mainly owner-managed.  As he built up his specialist wine & spirits trade law practice he narrowed the focus of his company & commercial practice, and now offers his expertise in this area on a consultancy basis to three types of client:

Accountancy Firms who do not have their own in-house legal capability, but want to work closely with a skilled and trusted company & commercial lawyer (a) to help their clients achieve their goals, and (b) on their own internal matters.

“I frequently groan – sometimes even despair – at the quality of work done by some law firms for clients of mine – even firms that profess to be specialists.  I would give Andrew full marks for technical expertise on company and commercial work, and on every measure of quality of service.”   Read the full testimonial

Other Law Firms who do not have sufficient cover to service company & commercial law work themselves, but (a) do have clients who require it, and (b) do not wish to refer those clients to other law firms.

Foreign Lawyers who are looking for a “safe pair of hands” to help them handle matters with a UK or EU element for their clients, while keeping the work “in-house”.
