Business start-ups

You’ve got a brilliant idea and now you’re ready to make a business out of it! We can help to make your vision a reality.

Setting up a new business is exciting but it can be daunting too. When you’re starting out in business, there are so many things to think about.

The structure of your business will affect lots of things in the future – from who makes decisions to how much tax you’ll have to pay and much more besides. So making the right choice for your business is vital. Fortunately, we can help you work out what’s best for you!

How we can help

We all know that making the right decisions early on in any process can save a lot of time and effort later on. When you’re setting up a business, you’ll want to have an experienced team on your side to help and guide you through the important decisions that you need to make. That’s where we can help!

Our expertise

Our commercial solicitors are experts in all aspects of business law. So we can talk you through the advantages and disadvantages of various possible business structures including

  • Sole trader 
  • Partnership 
  • Limited company 
  • Limited liability partnership

We can also advise on liability, risk, assets, regulations and finance.

How we work

We’ll take the time to listen to you and what you want to achieve with your new business. We work closely with trusted tax advisors and we’ll work with your accountants and other advisors if you need us to. We can also call on the expertise of our colleagues across our organisation, so we can also advise you on employment and commercial property law, so you’ll get a fully joined-up comprehensive service.

All our business customers have a solicitor, so you’ll always know who to call when you need to talk to us. We’ll work efficiently and keep you informed of what we’re doing. Costs are always important, especially when you’re just starting out, so we’ll do our best to keep those down too.

Focussed on you

Everything we do will be centred around your business and what you want to achieve. We’ll keep you informed and we’ll always explain your options in plain English. We’ll be with you every step of the way, to help and support you in setting up your new business.
