Owning a business is a huge commitment, and whether you are an active or a silent party, each comes with its own set of challenges. No matter the size or scale of your business there are many varied rules and regulations you must adhere to, and these can be confusing and overwhelming if you find yourself having to deal with them alone.
Our Company and Commercial solicitors are here to support you to ensure that everything is in place to safeguard you as much as possible, as well as protect your employees, third party investors, contractors, and so on. Our teams will analyse and assess your mandatory needs and requirements and go through them with you in a simple, clear, and cost effective way, leaving you with peace of mind for the future and time free to focus on making your empire a success.
Our company and commercial team are able to assist with:
- choice of business structure for new ventures;
- restructuring of established business models;
- company incorporation and establishing a partnership or LLP;
- partnership and shareholder agreements, service agreements for directors and general contracts of employment;
- terms and conditions of trading;
