Clive joined HT Legal in 2016 and brought to the firm a specialist expertise in the sale and purchase of small to medium-sized business in the Stockport and Tameside areas, with particular experience in the restaurant, licensed premises, high-street retailing and service sectors. The sale of such businesses as going concerns and associated transfer of assets and goodwill can be fraught with potential risks and liabilities. In addition to his detailed technical expertise, Clive’s clients value the pragmatic advice he can give, based not just on the bank of knowledge he has amassed in these sectors, but his familiarity and awareness of market conditions in the local area. His close involvement in these transactions at a personal level allows him to offer ongoing legal advice that is highly cost-effective, having already established a firm grasp of the business and its owner’s aims and objectives.
In addition, Clive is a key member of our Wills & Probate team, working on residential conveyances, wills and probate, power or attorney and Court of Protection cases. Clients again benefit from his extensive local knowledge, specialist sector experience and the organisational discipline that is essential for the speedy and efficient processing of these types of project.
