The Business Lawyer for Family and Owner Managed Businesses
Your Business, Your Future, Your Family Secure
I over 20 years’ experience helping owner managed and family-owned businesses: creating the right solutions to keep the business, you and your family secure.
I know that busy business owners need a pragmatic ‘what works for your business approach. That is my goal.
These are some of the ways I can help:
“Jane worked on a project for me and with a short lead time she pulled out all the stops to make sure everything was completed in time. She translated legal issues into a language I could understand, applying common sense to make sure all the bases were covered without over complicating. If you need a solicitor who will really watch your back whilst sticking to agreed rates and timescales then I highly recommend Jane”
“I’ve been looking for a lawyer who can turn business ideas into legal contracts for years. Jane has proven to me through a series of transactions that she is worth her weight in gold, either in providing documents from scratch to fit a particular situation or in being able to review and edit other people’s work. I can highly recommend her practical and very experienced approach.”
“Helpful, prompt good advice. Excellent service & easy to work with.”
“When you work with Jane Latham you have someone that has a great attention to detail, she is committed to getting the work completed and explores many different angles to ensure the most robust route forward. The approach I found most useful is working in collaboration, allowing Jane to understand the business and from there being able to advise and support the company as it develops. Her approach to billing is simply with no hidden or unexpected costs.”
“I have no hesitation in recommending Jane to my clients as she works to an agreed schedule (timetable), keeps everyone informed, is diligent in looking after my clients’ interests and above all else – dependable.”
“A breath of fresh air among commercial lawyers”
“Jane delivers a high quality and thorough legal service. Jane took great care to review all aspects and highlight potential risks. I valued her can-do, commercial approach which I also found to be very approachable. LCLS will definitely be my first point of contact for any future legal needs – I would not hesitate to recommend their services”
“Jane gives clear, comprehensive legal advice and we have been very happy with her services which we continue to use and I am pleased to recommend her.”
“Jane was brilliant, she was good to work with and great at pushing back to make sure that I didn’t accept anything that may be detrimental to me in the future. Great professional, would definitely recommend her. Thanks Jane”
“I used Jane’s services this year to help me set up a new joint venture. The legal bit was complicated involving a number of partners and partner companies with varying degrees of engagement. Jane provided clear and understandable advice from the outset. She covered the options using straight forward language and laid down the factors that needed to be considered. I was delighted with Jane’s work.”
“Jane was thorough and helpful and took time to understand my business. Her advice was clear and I am happy to recommend her.”
“Jane meets deadlines and responds promptly to communications. Clear, pragmatic advice. I would recommend her for business related legal advice delivered on time and within budget.”
“We commissioned Jane to produce documentation for our new business website. Jane took time to understand our business and was incredibly thorough in her approach. She was able to offer solid advice and guide us through what was, to us, a rather unknown area.”
“I was recommended to contact Jane as I needed a contract tailored specifically to our needs. Jane took the time to understand our business. She has a great eye for detail and I feel very confident in recommending her services.”
“Jane Latham from Latham Commercial Legal Services to draw up a partnership agreement for a new venture my business partner and I were developing. During the process I was very impressed by the depth of knowledge displayed by Jane, the questioning of our business intentions to make sure all aspects were covered and the insightful and useful suggestions Jane offered to us.
Jane was extremely approachable, easy to contact and pleasure to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jane to my clients, and I often do!”
Thank you for your advice again – I had a clear understanding of what I am signing, and your advice helped smooth the transaction to a speedy conclusion.
Jane you have been so on top of things, so committed to ensuring I get the best contract(s) possible, you’ve worked weekends/evenings… I can go on! I’m deeply grateful for your help with this transaction.
We have worked with Jane for many years, she always goes the extra mile & we value her advice, her approachability & clear explanations.
Jane was willing to go above and beyond what was required; supporting me in the evenings and weekends with my Australian client. Jane always had my very best interests at heart – she basically had my back.
Jane took care to think through all the elements of a complex contractual business deal in a very time pressured situation and she worked hard to protect my interests. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
A big thank you for your prompt and diligent attention to the task. We hope to work with Jane again in the near future
Jane is good to work with and gives down to earth clear and practical advice.
We came to Jane in a panic when we needed legal advice quickly. She was meticulous and professional taking time to understand our needs and requirements, despite a very tight timescale, we completed the limited company sale. We were delighted with her quality and efficiency and would have not still have a business today if it were not for her, she saved the day.
Jane was very helpful and kept us up to date & chased when needed
I needed a fast review of a legal agreement I was to sign. Jane turned it round in 24 hours, providing invaluable insights into the key points that I needed addressing before signature. I can’t recommend her services highly enough and will definitely use her again next time I have this kind of work to be done.
Please thank Jane for the excellent service she provided in connection with the sale of my Business. She was very approachable and straight to the point. whilst also listening to my concerns.
I would recommend her to anyone requiring similar advice.
Jane helped me with a purchase of an accountancy practice and produced a comprehensive agreement protecting my interests. I thought she gave pragmatic and clear advice.
Jane, we all really appreciate everything you have done and for safeguarding us. On a personal note I would like to thank you for your support, for going above and beyond and for being so understanding.
Jane recently acted me for me in connection with the merger of my practice. I found Jane to be very conscientious and paid great attention to detail in ensuring the contract was well drafted and she was also complimented by the other party. She took pains to ensure that I understood as a layman the legal connotations in the contract.
The timescale for this transaction was very tight and Jane made herself available to me 24/7 which was greatly appreciated.
I would highly recommend her services.
My approach is to work hard to understand the family dynamic, wheedle out or pre-empt the issues which affect even the closest and best run family owned businesses. Follow me on social media to read more…
