Beale & Co

 Areas of Expertise

 

Most areas of commercial work are handled from litigation/arbitration and dispute resolution to corporate and commercial advice on business structures, contracts and transactions, such as, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, restructuring, property and employment law. The firm has developed a notable reputation for handling professional indemnity insurance claims and construction disputes.

 

Although the firm has a wide range of expertise and is large by European standards, it regards itself as a niche practice with legal skills attuned to the needs of commercial clients particularly from the main industry sectors of Insurance, Construction, Property and Information Technology. The firm is a leading firm in acting for professional practices such as architects, engineers, surveyors, accountants, financial advisers/brokers and solicitors.

 

The firm operates from offices in London and Bristol (UK) and in Dublin (Ireland). Further details and useful information to clients are available on the Website www.beale-law.com

 

Ability to Represent Clients throughout the Country

 

Our coverage extends to England and Wales and Ireland. We are able to appear in interlocutory hearings in County Courts (smaller claims) and the High Court. For the main hearing of a case in those Courts barristers have to be engaged to conduct the advocacy in Court. In the UK the legal profession has two branches. This enables us to engage an advocate with the appropriate specialist experience.
