Business law solicitors
(020) 8275 0336
On 30 September 2016 SL Law Limited ceased to operate as a law firm. On 1 October 2016 Spencer Laymond joined Curwens LLP following merging his business with them. SL Law Limited entered into a voluntary winding up on a solvent basis on 19 January 2017 and was dissolved on 9 March 2018.
SL Law was setup in 2010 to provide business law advice for the traditional law firm without a commercial department. We believe firms that specialise in traditional high street services such as residential conveyancing, wills and probate, family matters and civil litigation, are unable to give best advice on business transactions and business contracts.
Virtually all of our business comes from other solicitors, accountants, existing clients or business agents who appreciate the difference that specialist business law know-how and experience can make.
We have clients in numerous industries, in particular the health and digital media sectors. We are known as lawyers for optometrists.
Spencer has experience working in the city on big ticket transactions, from inspecting documents in Baku, Azerbaijan on a ½ billion oil fraud with ex-KGB protection, to working 24/7 shift time proof reading documents for a heavy weight US firm.
Spencer considers himself a legal draftsman and a negotiator. That prevention is better than cure. His focus is on up-front risk management. He focus is on making sure there is a binding contract in place, the terms accurately record the intended deal and the terms are stated in the most favourable manner as they can be.
His favourite quote is: “Drafting is engineering. If it does not work it has completely failed", Commercial Law Handbook, Law Society 2009
We are experts in company and commercial law and have many years of experience dealing with contracts. We can sift through the ‘small print’ with ease and we are are fully adept with negotiating terms, and drafting agreements to deal with unusual arrangements. We can deal with agreements from buying and selling businesses, exploiting and licencing intellectual property, partnership agreements, executive employment agreements, guarantees and indemnities and terms of business to name just a few.
