In the second episode of the #TVLawyer Podcast, Melinda Giles talks to Giles Wilson Partner and Commercial Law specialist Roy Daby to explore the ways private client law and commercial law complement each other.

For many people, work is work, family is family. While this can help business owners balance their day to day, it is crucial to consider both sides when thinking about a company’s present and future.

After many years working with commercial clients, Roy Daby knows better than anyone how solely focusing on a current deal or property purchase can obscure the bigger picture, creating problems down the road. Here, he outlines these experiences with Melinda Giles, and how working alongside a dedicated private client team has helped broaden the solutions he can offer his clients.

In this episode, they discuss:

  • What commercial law is and the ground that this covers

  • How the combination of private client and commercial law expertise helps form holistic, far-reaching solutions for clients

  • Why solicitors should get to know their clients as complete individuals rather than just business owners

  • Various solutions that may benefit a client, their business and their family in the long term, such as Lasting Powers of Attorney and company trusts

  • The value of Inheritance Tax planning and business property relief

  • The importance of having legal documentation in place early in case complications arise in the future

  • Why openness and transparency between solicitors and clients is so crucial
