Starting Your Business: Don't Overlook The Legalities

Setting up a business of any size is usually a frantic and stressful period. Legal issues might not be at the forefront of your mind. But ignoring statutory obligations will cost you, not just in the form of fines but in the valuable resources you might waste putting things right further down the line.

How We Work

Our aim is to equip you with all the legal tools you need to run a successful operation. We can only do this if we understand your business in detail. For this reason we hold a face-to-face consultation to establish precisely what your needs are. We will then provide comprehensive advice on issues such as:

  • The laws that will apply to your particular business
  • The most effective and tax-efficient legal vehicle for your business
  • The legal responsibilities you will have to employees and the people you do business with
  • Consumer laws that may affect you
  • Employment issues, including contracts and staff handbooks
  • Health and Safety laws
  • Insurance issues
  • How any necessary licences are obtained

Ongoing Advice That Makes Your Business More Efficient

We have developed several different packages for long-term advice, ensuring that for a reasonable monthly fee you have legal back-up when you need it. This includes dealing with issues such as disciplinary proceedings and regular employment law updates and tips. Essentially we aim to work across the board to make your business run smoothly, freeing up key staff to concentrate on the day-to-day core issues you face.
