Starting a Business

Starting a business or new venture is both exciting and daunting. The legal complexities can be bewildering if you are setting up a business for the first time. I provide professional in-house counsel that will allow you to put all the necessary legal framework in place and get your business off to the best possible start.

Protecting a Business

No-one starts a business with the mindset that it will fail. But the reality is that 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months, so it’s worth thinking about how you can protect your business as well as your own personal assets should the worst happen. My services include advising on trademarks, company structure and enforcing contracts to put your business on a sound legal footing.

Growing a Business

When growing a business many issues will undoubtedly arise that require legal advice. You may, for example, be thinking about making acquisitions, franchising or entering into joint ventures. I will take care of the legal aspects and allow you to keep focused on the running of your business.
