If you are setting up a new business there are several options available – limited company, partnership, limited liability partnership, sole trader…. each having different advantages and disadvantages depending on your particular situation. We can offer experienced advice to help guide your decision and then support you with all the practical (legal and statutory) steps to get your business off the ground.
Having a legal framework for your business is often just the start – our commercial team can advise you on all the other things you’ll need to consider in order to avoid possible problems in the future. Shareholder or partnership agreements set out the relationship between owners and their obligations in the event of possible future occurrences. You may need to consider service agreements with any Directors of the business and you will be required to issue contracts to any employees and of course comply with all aspects of employment law.
Starting a new business can be an exciting time and it is natural to focus on the business activity rather than he seemingly mundane housekeeping issues. To do so can lead to future problems, costs and even confrontations that can easily be avoided if covered from the start. Your appointed solicitor will discuss all of these things with you in ‘no jargon’ terms and then help put things in place so you comply with all statutory requirements and have a firm foundation to make your business succeed.
