Serving Edinburgh, Glasgow and West Lothian

Small Business Start-up Lawyers

Our law firm values establishing long-term relationships with our business clients, and we enjoy speaking with them on a regular basis. We are friendly and approachable.

We provide ongoing advisory services to numerous companies, some which we have advised for more than 30 years.

Our business law services are comprehensive and include the following:

  • Company formation/new business start-ups
  • Premises purchases and leases, including commercial property
  • Business reorganisations
  • Shareholder and partnership agreements and disputes
  • Buying and selling businesses and assets
  • Partnership formation
  • Cross options agreements for shareholders
  • Business contract drafting
  • Drafting terms and conditions

At P.C. McFarlane & Co., we believe we must understand the nature of your business, your challenges and your goals, in order to help you. While you may be seeking a solicitor to address a pressing business transaction today, our lawyers are focused on much more than immediate results. We recommend solid legal solutions aimed at efficiently completing the task at hand, as well as preventing future problems. For example the correct business structure choice for the long term — whether to be sole trader, partnership or company — is a key decision through which we can guide you.

Our recent work involves the completion of a share option scheme for employees and the successful resolution of a dispute between two partners in a professional firm leading to a mutually acceptable outcome. Other interesting recent matters have been the creation of group company structures, a Limited Liability Partnership formation including a very complex underlying partnership contract and several business sales/purchases

We offer free initial consultations to give you an opportunity to meet us, discuss your needs and learn about our approach. Call 01506 497160 or contact us online to schedule a meeting with one of our knowledgeable Livingston business law solicitors.
