Commercial solicitor


A commercial solicitor acts for a whole range of different businesses.  At any given time, the matters of which a commercial solicitor has conduct will be wide and varied, ranging from general commercial work (such as advising start-up businesses) to large, complex corporate transactions (buying and selling companies) often referred to as corporate law.

A commercial solicitor advises on specialist areas of law and acts for clients where there is a business related dispute.  Most commercial solicitors specialise in particular areas of law such as commercial property, taxation, HR law, banking, intellectual property or competition law.

Generally, a commercial solicitor works as part of a team on complex and intellectually stimulating work, which often requires the ability to meet difficult deadlines under pressure.

The following are some of the day-to-day tasks carried out by a commercial solicitor:

  • Meeting clients and taking instructions on the work to be carried out and understanding the client's ultimate commercial objectives
  • Advising clients on all applicable commercial law, which may relate to the transaction
  • Negotiating with an opponent commercial solicitor in order to secure the desired objectives
  • Carrying out legal research on novel points of law
  • Co-ordinating the work of all parties involved in the matter
  • Acting on behalf of clients in contentious matters and then representing them at court proceedings, if necessary
  • Supervising more junior members of the team
  • Checking all documentation for accuracy before signing
  • Organising further contact with the client to negotiate work and contracts and to gather information in the preparation of case materials
  • Instructing advocates for representation, if necessary
  • Keeping up-to-date with all relevant changes in the law by reading journals and by attending courses
