Start-up solicitors

Starting a business can be incredibly straightforward, but starting a business without the right legal advice from a specialist business solicitor can prove very costly later on in the process. With our fixed fee legal start-up advice packages you can ensure that you get your business off on the right legal footing.

Your start-up needs

When starting up a new business some good legal advice can save you a considerable amount of expense and time later on in your business life. Issues you need to consider include:

  • The legal identity of your start-up
  • What are the best terms and conditions to ensure you are paid well and on time?
  • If you are going to employ, what will be your rights and responsibilities and how can you protect these with your employment contract?
  • Will you need a business partner?
  • Who will be the best accountant for your business?
  • If you need the best premises, should you rent or buy?

This is only a small fraction of the items you need to consider. We understand it can be a daunting experience, but we are here to make it easier for you. Our fixed price packages not only provide you with certainty in terms of your legal expenses, but our commercial acumen and general business common sense ensures that we can take a lot of the pressure away from you. This leaves you free to concentrate on growing your business.
