Challinors: Supporting The Birmingham Post Business Awards 2012 – sponsor of the Small Business and Startup Category
For the second year running, Challinors is proud sponsor of the Birmingham Post’s Small Business and Startup Business Award.
Challinors has a growing reputation as the ‘law firm of choice’ for high-growth, entrepreneurial SME and start-up businesses, making it the ideal sponsor of this category in the Birmingham Post Business Awards.
The Business Support Unit
The firms’ Business Support Unit has been created to provide a legal service dedicated to meeting the needs of SMEs and their owners/managers, supporting them with the challenges they face at each stage of development.
Headed by corporate specialists Malford Harris and Peter Lowe, BSU gives clients instant access to a total, tailored legal service, and has pioneered a new way of working with clients – from getting a clear understanding of a clients’ business and providing tailored legal and commercial support, to working together and building strong relationships, all integral to the BSU service. New BSU clients are entitled to a free sixty minute legal audit.
Supporting Local Entrepreneurial Initiatives
Challinors is an active supporter of local entrepreneurial initiatives, and through regular seminars, legal workshops and mentoring services, holds a strong relationship with many of the SME and start-up support and incubation programmes across the region. Corporate solicitor Jamie Partington works closely with new, emerging and well-established businesses at BSPA and e4f, and has built an excellent reputation for his work for creative, high-tech and high-growth businesses in the technology and media arena.
Highly Experienced Corporate Team
The corporate team, led by Michael Knibbs, is well-regarded for its work within the bio-sciences, technology and media sectors, regularly assisting clients with intricate shareholder and investor arrangements, funding rounds, e-commerce and web-based legalities, software licences, hosting and management agreements, intellectual property exploitation, terms and conditions for the supply of goods and services and sale and purchase agreements.
Michael explains: “The team continues to build on its strong reputation for being adept at dealing with tech-specific investment, intellectual property, licensing, regulatory and trading concerns, and its work for high-tech, high growth entrepreneurial clients in the technology and media sectors. Jamie Partington has proved invaluable to many of the emerging entrepreneurs in the region and, in many instances, we have supported clients from start-up through to a successful, thriving business.”
Listening to and supporting our clients, whilst keeping costs down
Challinors’ senior partner Paul Griffiths, believes the firms’ accessibility, service, legal excellence and efficiency is what sets it apart from other law firms in the region: “Challinors’ legal expertise, comprehensive range of legal disciplines and office network throughout the Midlands, makes it extremely well placed to support businesses of all sizes through all stages of growth.
“Challinors has a reputation for being refreshingly down-to-earth and easy to work with. We believe providing an outstanding legal service, by itself, is not enough. We treat every client as a relationship, not a transaction and this is what makes the difference. We listen to clients, getting to the root of their issues, so our lawyers can spend more time solving problems, communicating at every stage, and keeping costs down. Our strategy is one of constant evolution.”
