Bright Line Law’s range of advisory services reflect the differing needs of clients and its practice is to keep a close eye on business and legal developments, and to use its knowledge and experience to support clients in adapting to these. Bright Line Law understands that the commercial environment is incredibly competitive and subject to regular change and take pride in its reputation for being on-hand to assist clients often before any substantive legal issues come to light. Advisory Services include:
Adapting to regulatory changes
The UK is widely respected throughout the world for operating a sophisticated regulatory framework to ensure business compliance with acceptable standards of practice. This can however present difficulties for businesses who will need to pre-empt and consider how best to adapt regulatory changes to avoid what can be a significant sanction for failure. Bright Line Law regularly provides technical advice on engaging with regulatory bodies including Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Bright Line Law has technical expertise in being aware of the challenges and provides on-hand assistance to clients in designing new practices and policies to reflect and comply with these changes.
Protecting commercial interests
Businesses are incredibly vulnerable to being implicated in illegal activity, none more so than money laundering. There is a global effort to guard against the involvement of the commercial sphere in money laundering and preventing criminals from converting illegal assets into legitimate property. There has been a marked increase in the pressure facing business to structure their operation to reduce the risk of becoming involved in money laundering. The issue is however that much of the rules on money laundering are incredibly complex and difficult to translate into practical policies and procedures. Bright Line Law is regularly called upon to assist clients in formulating a framework that observes the anti-money laundering rules and protects their commercial interests.
Responding appropriately to Investigations
Investigations for suspected illegal behaviour can be disastrous for businesses, undermining client confidence in their operation and jeopardising their position in the market. It also puts immense pressure on a workforce, with regulatory bodies able to conduct exacting investigations and interviews which could severely impede a business’s day-to-day activities. Bright Line Law understands how taxing investigations can be to clients and make itself available to formulate and carry out a strategy on complying with regulatory searches, while also safeguarding client interests.
It is incredibly important for businesses operating in today’s commercial world to be able to take specialist legal guidance on their intentions. Not only will this reduce the risk of any future embarrassment and financial loss, but it can also greatly enhance the decision-making process. Bright Line Law is proud to be the advisor-of-choice for many of clients, contributing expertise on both legal and commercial issues to support them in their respective ventures.

All too often clients find that the benefits of having lawyers involved are realised too late in the process: after a decision has been made or following a complaint. It is true that legal input to business decisions can improve their quality, but this ultimately depends on the quality of the law firm and their ability to understand the needs of the business in giving advice.
