Commercial/ Business Law
Commercial law (also known as business law), which is an omnibus phrase for a range of legal services designed to support businesses in making money from their products and services, is indispensable in everyday business activities.
CM Advocates LLP (CM Advocates) is a multi-disciplinary commercial law firm that specializes in advising on and drafting a wide variety of agreements that businesses enter into on a daily basis.
Clients choose CM Advocates to benefit from the firm’s commercial awareness and multi-disciplinary skills, as well as the firm’s previous experience and ability to engage, document, and negotiate a deal that meets clients’ objectives and appropriately mitigates their risk.
We appreciate that a number of technical, legal, regulatory, financial, commercial, or operational issues hamper good commercial transactions. It is therefore critical that the client has a commercially aware legal team that is experienced and focused on resolving those issues to help drive the proposed transaction to fruition.
Our results-oriented nature enables us to prioritize our clients’ goals and desired objectives. We are therefore always keen to ensure that we provide value-driven legal guidance on the processes, obligations, risks and business-related issues, which enables our clients to achieve their goals, maximize on profits and minimize risks.
Along with advising on commercial arrangements, often times, the challenge is to simply determine the best approach to helping two or more parties achieve their intended objectives. Along with our counterparts Corporate Law Team, Labour, Employment and Immigration Law Team and Tax Law Team, we regularly advise on such matters, including the choice of special purpose vehicle (i.e., a corporate body or a contractual structure); how to document key deliverables or issues, such as governance; sharing and developing intellectual property; taxation issues, regulatory requirements and potential liability. We partner with clients to give the venture the highest chance of success and help parties understand the transaction’s tax, human resource, competition and other statutory compliance considerations.
