Business Start Up Services

Are you planning to start a new business?

Perhaps you’re considering ‘going it alone’ after years of being an employee, or you have a great business idea that you’re determined to make a success.

Whatever the background to your decision, we provide all the specialist legal services you’ll need and help take the headache out of getting your new venture off the ground.

Creating a new, start-up business can be a confusing time and it is crucial that the right legal advice is sought in order to ensure your business is established in line with legislation and prior to establishing relationships with customers or clients.

Our specialist lawyers have a wealth of experience advising owner managed businesses from pre-start through to set up and on to expansion.  We recognise the importance of truly understanding the nature of your business and your long-term goals. That’s why our New Business team provides you with tailored advice as you get your business off the ground with a view to building a long term relationship that develops and grows with you.
