Why Kanaval?

Not only are we experienced legal practitioners, we are also entrepreneurs who run successful businesses outside of the legal profession, ranging from bars and restaurants to music venues and festivals.

With this in mind, we are fully aware of the opportunities and challenges of setting up and operating a commercial venture in this competitive economic climate.


With this deep understanding of the commercial world, we are perfectly placed to provide strategic business consultancy services, as well as no-nonsense legal advice.
