welcome to Emsleys

Protecting your business is crucial. Problems involving employees,

customers and suppliers take you away from the day job and if they

are not addressed at an early stage, they can result in real problems

that are not only demanding of your time and money but can severely

affect your bottom line. For smaller firms, particularly in tough

economic times, this can result in serious damage to your business.

Whether you are looking to prevent costly and time-consuming issues occurring, or if a dispute has already arisen, you need a legal advisor with the expertise and experience to help you address the situation. Many legal problems can be prevented by having the basics in place. To help avoid issues arising in the future, we offer all clients a free ‘business health check’.

We have extensive experience in all aspects of business and commercial property law and have advised and given practical support to local and regional businesses for many years. We are also nationally recognised as experts in property and housing litigation, acting for landlords in courts throughout the country. Our dedicated teams focus on the individual needs of your business, taking care to understand the outcome you want to achieve, allowing you to concentrate on your priority of running your business.

We believe we do things differently and so do our clients. We give our clients what they want – friendly, approachable lawyers who offer the best, highest quality advice, who keep it simple and speak the same language. Our clients trust us - we ask every one of them and over 98%* would recommend us.
