BBM - Lawyers in Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen & Wick

We advise on:-

Insolvency and Restructuring

We act for Insolvency Practitioners across Scotland. However, we also use that expertise to advise businesses experiencing difficulties. This can include advising on turnaround strategies, and often in relation to bank or HMRC negotiations. Where informal strategies are unsuccessful we can advise on formal insolvency options including Liquidation, Administration and Company Voluntary Arrangements. In that relation we have excellent relationships with insolvency practitioners and will often be able to advise on a particular practitioner being appointed based on the type of business and sector.

We also act for Directors facing insolvency related claims (either by Insolvency Practitioners or holders of Personel Guarantees). We are one of a minority of Scottish firms to have experience in dealing with Director's Disqualification claims and Investigations post insolvency. We are always happy to have an informal, no-obligation discussion with businesses experiencing difficulties.

BBM can provide general or incident specific advice on issues of age, gender or disability discrimination or alleged workplace harassment and work with you to ensure your internal HR policies can not be seen as discriminatory. We also have extensive experience in the preparation and presentation of cases at employment tribunals.

Commercial Property

We have a growing Commercial Property practice, and are able to advise clients on a range of matters. We have particular experience in sales, acquisitions and leasing, and are also well placed to advise on planning agreements with local authorities and lending matters.

In addition to transactional work, we are also able to provide detailed advice on property matters, and we are happy to meet with businesses to discuss the property implications for a proposed venture. We have excellent connections with a number of agents, surveyors and other professionals, and we would be happy to introduce clients to other advisors who can assist us in achieving a particular goal. These connections also meant that where a client is looking for us to work with their existing advisor, we often already have a good working relationship established.

We act for a broad range of different clients from new businesses to well established developers, and therefore we recognise that each client's needs are unique. We strive to understand each client's business and its property requirements, so that we are able to provide clients with the particular service that they want.

We also assist other parts of the firm where a transaction involves a property element, particularly in relation to insolvency matters. This means that we have a great ability to look at things from a variety of angles.
