Commercial Corporate

The Commercial Corporate Department at The Byrne Practice -
Provides Solutions for You.


Whether you are just starting out in business, already operating one or looking to acquire or dispose of one, The Byrne Practice has the expertise that you need to ensure that you get the best possible outcome.

We aim to provide you with the very best in support and advice. Our approach is personal and tailored to your needs whether you are acquiring the corner shop, a multi-million pound patent portfolio or need to ensure that you have an effective set of trading terms and conditions.

We are able to offer a level of expertise and support that is traditionally only found in large city based law firms which is why we not only have clients from our local area but also throughout the UK, Europe and North America.
