The legal side of starting or expanding a business can be complicated and confusing if you do not have the right support.
It should be an exciting time for a business owner. Unfortunately, it is often the case that people only consult a solicitor when matters reach a crisis point, or when something has already gone wrong.
Taking steps to protect your business from risk at the outset could potentially save you money in the long-term.
Our aim is to help businesses access the legal support that can be crucial to the success of the business. To help meet this objective, we are members of Lawyers for Your Business, an accreditation scheme run by the Law Society. The scheme is backed by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), Chambers of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses.
This accreditation gives you the reassurance that you are consulting a firm of solicitors who are highly qualified, insured, and registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), which is the legal profession’s regulatory body.
For extra peace of mind, you can be sure of a swift response to your enquiry.
We can talk you through the legal issues you face and what steps to take next in a free 30-minute consultation either at our offices or at your office or premises if it is more convenient for you.
Our specialist solicitors can help you through any business issues you may have and can:
- Help you identify what your potential problems might be
- Help you put in place measures to prevent those problems
- Give you clear information about how much our help will cost
Following our initial meeting, you are free to take time to think about our advice and decide if you want to go ahead. You will not be under any obligation to proceed.
