The new commercial department will offer legal advice to both business start-ups and established businesses. Jeremy has wide ranging experience dealing with shareholder agreements, director’s service agreements, commercial contracts, supplier contracts, website terms and conditions, sale of businesses and data protection.
Dorset born and raised Jeremy may be a familiar face to many of you, he has appeared twice on the Ben Fogle ITV1 series Harbour Lives, featured working alongside Ben on board the family owned fishing boat, ‘Purbeck II’.
Says MJP Law founder Martin Pate, “Jeremy is enthusiastic, dynamic and professional. He is well known locally has extensive legal and commercial experience and brings with him a wealth of experience, great contacts and a can do, practical attitude.”
Jeremy Channon says, “I am here to help all businesses, if you are setting up a new business or if you are looking to buy, sell or re-structure an existing business. My aim is to create a commercial division which will make the process run as smoothly and as cost effectively as possible.
“Every new customer is entitled to a free initial meeting with me. I will explain what I will do for you, in a jargon free and practical way, and for an agreed fixed fee.”
