The service sector constitutes a highly significant part of the UK's economy. It is particularly affected in times of economic downturn, when operators can be left feeling exposed, with greater consolidation and reorganisation likely. Conversely in boom periods when development is to the fore, the sector is capable of rapid, even exponential, expansion.
We act for a large number of business services providers across a wide range of disciplines, from the healthcare, food & drink, retail and tourism & leisure sectors, through to providers of professional services. We also have numerous clients involved in all areas of education and training, from primary to tertiary, further and continuing education, and vocational and work-related training.
With lawyers from various disciplines well-versed in the issues faced by those in the service sector, we are able to deliver practical advice to help businesses not only to protect their position, but also to take advantage of available opportunities. Our broad knowledge of the regulatory background in which our clients operate ensures that our advice is always provided with an effective solution in mind.
