Setting up a Business

Whether you’re setting up a business for the first time, or this is the next step towards business growth, ensuring your business is set up properly will save you time, money and any extra stress further down the line.

Our corporate and commercial solicitors have years of experience in helping business owners to get their businesses up and running and to help with any obstacles you may face along the way.

How do I structure a business?

How you decide to structure your business will depend on a number of factors. You will need to consider the type of organisation, the ownership structure, how many people you plan on employing and what your long-term plans are.

It’s important that you’ve carefully considered your options from the outset, which is where our expert commercial solicitors can step in to advise you.

Our expert commercial lawyers will help you to ensure all necessary contracts, such as terms and conditions and shareholder agreements, are in place. We also have our Commercial Property and Employment solicitors on hand to advise on any other elements such as taking on a commercial property, leasing business premises or getting employment contracts or policies in place.
