Bury St

Clive Wadham-Smith has lived in the Bury St Edmunds area for nearly 30 years and qualified in April 1978.  For the last 20 years he has mainly practised in the company commercial and commercial property fields in particular advising small and medium type businesses. Cases range from simple to the complex.

Clive now combines practising law as a consultant for Rudlings Wakelam with working in house to provide business advice for specific clients.

This allows him to understand exactly how clients see things from their “side of the fence.” This means that the work he carries out is all totally client centred. It also means that he has experience of a wide range of commercial issues which in turn means he is able to recognise problems before they occur and to make sure they are dealt with correctly.

Clive’s areas of expertise and experience include:

  • Sale and purchase of Companies and businesses (both share and asset based.) This accounts for around 30% of his workload
  • Company formations, Shareholder agreements, commercial contracts and terms and conditions of business account for another 30% and
  • Franchises, commercial leases, sale and purchase of commercial property account for the remainder along with general business advice and a small amount of residential conveyancing for key clients.

Outside of the office Clive is involved in various charitable organisations in the village in which he lives and he enjoys sports such as tennis and squash. Until recently Clive held a private pilot’s license. Clive is married and has one daughter.
