Case study: the British Business Bank

Case study: The British Business Bank

The British Business Bank is a business development bank dedicated to making finance markets work better for smaller businesses. At the start of the pandemic, the Bank was tasked by the Treasury to support businesses by rolling out new loan programmes as quickly and efficiently as possible. In need of extra resources, Obelisk provided a finance lawyer with lending experience to be an extra pair of hands at a time of national emergency.

Corporate & Commercial Lawyers FAQs

What is a commercial lawyer or paralegal?

Commercial Lawyers and paralegals help businesses trade and work on a wide range of contracts and agreements dealing with any stage in the manufacturing, sale, supply and distribution of goods and services.

When should I hire a commercial lawyer?

It might be that you are looking to close some major contracts with a new client or to renegotiate some supplier agreements, a commercial lawyer can help highlight any areas of risk, secure a contract that is as close as possible to what you need for your business and generally work as an extension of your team. It’s good to have someone in your corner to ensure you maintain your commercial advantage!

Can corporate lawyers work remotely?

Working remotely as a lawyer is becoming increasingly popular. There are several reasons for this, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing availability of technology that makes it possible for lawyers to work remotely. More clients and law firms recognise the benefits of lawyers that work remotely including cost savings on office space. Working remotely can also look different for different lawyers. Some of our legal consultants work entirely from home, while others work from a co-working space of their choice or another location outside of a traditional office. Some lawyers work full-time remotely, while others work part-time or on a project basis.
