Business Start Ups

In the fledgling days of a new business, the legal issues can be bewildering. We help existing businesses with the setup of new corporate structures and entrepreneurs and partnerships to get the most out of their business ventures.

Our expertise includes:

Advising clients on the best legal structure for their business;

Experience dealing with professional partnerships, including lawyers, accountants, surveyors, architects, GP’s and others;

Knowing what legal structures are right for clients in terms of suitability, flexibility and longevity;

Setting up private companies, not for profit companies, community interest companies, charitable companies, limited liability partnerships, limited partnerships and ‘old fashioned’ partnerships;

The transition from one structure to another, for example from partnership to LLP or limited company;

Understanding and advising how to protect your personal assets and family wealth.

            You’ll need a mix of legal, tax and accounting support to get the structure right for you.

If going into business with others then follow the old adage of ‘good fences make good neighbours’; get the legal relationship right at the outset by agreeing the broad principles of what you want to happen and how.
