Chubb Bulleid is a medium sized firm based in central Somerset, dealing with work locally but also a considerable amount of national work. Frequently we are asked to deal with substantial business transactions in which some of the legal work is beyond our expertise. It is important that us lawyers do not carry out work that we are not well versed in, and so we have in place a set of contacts that we have successfully worked with in the past. We assemble a team to carry out the work. An example would be the sale of substantial businesses where there can be some specialised areas, for example trademark law. We will sometimes work with consultants, specialised solicitors and perhaps barristers. Our experience is that this way of dealing with transactions works perfectly well and allows us to be involved in a wide variety of legal work.
