Jersey Business Legal Services

Parslows Jersey business team members know and understand what it’s like for you to run a business; from dealing with landlord/tenant agreements and employment through to reviewing commercial agreements.  We know because we are also a Jersey business.

We understand that no two Jersey businesses are the same, but all require expert legal advice to accomplish their business objectives.  We will work with your key figures to really understand your business needs, providing business-focused and fully-rounded legal advice that is specific to your situation.  We will always be on hand to provide sound and meaningful guidance, not only for one-off matters, but throughout your business life cycle.

We know that businesses have to carefully manage their budget. If we consider a client can resolve a matter without the services of one of our lawyers or if we can provide succinct advice in the right direction, we will say so. Whether we’re advising a Jersey start-up company or an established Jersey business, we always start and end with what is in your commercial interest.

Parslows Jersey Business Legal Services team is small enough to care but big enough to trust.


We support Jersey businesses with cost effective Jersey legal services. If you choose to work with us, we will provide you with fixed fees, which we will stick to.
