Feature article for June

Long-established as a law practice in Lymington, the friendly Scott Bailey team provides a full range of legal services to private individuals and businesses throughout the New Forest and beyond. Each month we are now publishing a new feature article about a different area of the law which Scott Bailey covers. This month's article is about how marine businesses and boat owners are able to benefit from the team's specialist expertise.

Keeping your business afloat

Trees in forest with words Helping you see the wood for the trees

By the time this post goes live, another highly anticipated SeaWork 2023 commercial marine and workboat exhibition will have been and gone, and The Boat Show will already be on the horizon, so this is the perfect time to shine a light on how the business team at Scott Bailey LLP helps many marine businesses and boat owners in and around the New Forest.

Smooth sailing with expert legal guidance

As a business in the marine sector, finding the right legal support is crucial to navigate the treacherous legal waters that come with business ventures. When you've agreed on the broad terms of that potentially lucrative deal, but need proper documentation to safeguard your interests, commercial lawyers with strong expertise can prove invaluable. At Scott Bailey LLP, our trusted team of business advisers is equipped to assist with deal structures, contract reviews, and drafting. With our guidance, businesses can confidently navigate negotiations, minimise disputes, and protect their valuable assets.

Securing intellectual property in the sea of innovation

SeaWork serves as an excellent platform for launching groundbreaking ideas and innovation. Protecting intellectual property becomes paramount for SMEs looking to make their mark. The team at Scott Bailey LLP understands the significance of intellectual property rights and can help businesses secure trademarks and designs, and record copyrights. With robust legal protection and proper licenses in place, SMEs can unleash their creative potential, confident that their unique ideas and products are shielded from infringement and ready to monetise.

Resolving disputes with skill and expertise

Even the most meticulously planned voyages can encounter stormy weather. In the unfortunate event of disputes arising, our dispute resolution team of litigation lawyers offers skilled guidance and effective representation. Whether it's resolving contractual conflicts or handling insurance claims, our litigation professionals navigate the choppy waters of dispute resolution with expertise and negotiation skills. They work tirelessly to find swift, cost-effective resolutions, allowing businesses to focus on growth and success.
