When you are setting up a business there is so much to do and not enough hours in the day. You cannot do everything at once so making the right choices and prioritising are essential. Our experienced commercial lawyers provide advice and guidance at all stages of the start-up process.

Your choice of business structure determines how the business will operate. We provide information and advice on the alternatives: sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership and limited company, to help you choose the structure best suited to your business.

We start off by listening to your plans and concerns. Funding, premises, staff, regulation, terms of trading, partnership or shareholders agreements, are some of the issues you are likely to encounter. We provide practical and pragmatic advice, to ensure clients receive the support they need – and not mountains of material they do not need. We also work with tax advisors and other specialists and will work with your accountants as required.

The first part of our service is an Initial Assessment without commitment. We arrange a telephone conference during which we provide an initial assessment of your matter & an indication of what will be involved in time and cost.  Please email brief details of the matter and your contact telephone number to:
