Let's talk

Starting a new business can be very exciting but also challenging. Thinking about all the legal details that must be considered can often be daunting, and even at times overwhelming. This is the time when mistakes can occur, and it is therefore crucial to get the right advice from business start-up experts as early as possible. 

Hiring a professional and experienced business start-up lawyer will ensure you are legally compliant whilst also removing some of the strain from your shoulders.

We have been advising small and large business start-ups for over 20 years with an entrepreneurial perspective and trusted expertise. Our start-up solicitors are at the top of their field and have experience working with a range of clients across the UK and internationally.

We take a pragmatic and tailored approach to each client’s goals, always ensuring that we understand the commercial requirements of the new business, in order to provide bespoke advice and documents that best suits the client’s needs.

We can advise on the following:

  • What business structure to adopt (sole trader, partnership, or limited company)

  • Trading contracts and terms of business
  • Website terms and conditions
  • Privacy policies
  • Employment matters
  • Advice on post-termination restrictions
  • GDPR
  • Immigration law
