Starting your own business:
Starting a business can be a daunting process, particularly in the current economic climate. In addition to the many issues you will face when setting up a business – such as location of premises and starting business relations with suppliers and customers – there are also a number of complex legal issues related to a business start-up which must be considered.
Setting up a business – the legal aspects:
Our commercial team offer advice and support on all aspects of business start up and company formation, including:
- Company formation
- Setting up a partnership
- Incorporating an LLP
- Incorporating a limited partnership
- Shareholder agreements
- Corporate finance
- Standard terms and conditions of business
- Registered office services
Have you considered all of the options open to you – sole trader, company, partnership, or limited liability partnership? Can you use the business name you want or is it prohibited or already in use? Do you need to consider an agreement between partners or shareholders, particularly if finance is being injected into the start-up?
Our team will outline all of your options, explain what is involved in starting a business and give expert and professional guidance to help you make those important decisions.
Protecting your business from possible future legal problems:
Seeking professional legal advice in the early stages of starting a business ensures every aspect of the start-up is addressed and the process is undertaken thoroughly and comprehensively.
Our commercial team makes sure there are no weaknesses in any documentation or otherwise which could potentially cause costly problems for you personally or for your business in the future.
