The working landscape is changing rapidly: self-employment is at its highest level in 40 years and we realise the challenges that come with entrepreneurial ventures.

Collyer Bristow advises entrepreneurial clients both in the UK and internationally. We understand our clients and the complexity of their lives: they are growing their families, advancing their careers, setting up businesses and buying property. As a firm, what sets us apart is our ability to support individuals throughout their lives in both a commercial and private client capacity.

With women now accounting for 17% of business owners, we recently showcased a selection of female-founded brands at our Collyer Bristow Boutique event.

Supporting Businesses

We work with entrepreneurs at every stage of the business lifecycle. We passionately support entrepreneurship, providing considerable legal expertise to aspirational, start-up and growing businesses whose founders want to succeed, evolve and challenge the status quo. Within our team’s expertise, service lines of particular benefit to entrepreneurs include corporate and commercial work, intellectual property, commercial real-estate and employment.

We take the time to understand our clients’ businesses and strategies, ensuring that our advice is always commercially relevant and supports their overarching objectives. It is our aim to be considered part of the in-house team, and work alongside our clients in partnership to realise their ambitions.

Supporting Individuals

As individuals navigate and develop their business ventures, it is inevitable that they will also face changes in their personal lives. Increased net worth from successful businesses, new additions to the family and the purchase of homes and other high value assets are some of the reasons individuals may wish to consider their estate planning and other personal legal services that would support their needs. Our team of expert private client lawyers are able to advise across a wide range of areas including family law, tax and estate planning, reputation management and residential property.
