Running Your Business
Our local business solicitors provide tailored legal advice for small businesses. Our specialist team of small business lawyers can help you to understand your obligations and, more importantly, satisfy them.
Legal advice for small businesses
Your business is unique and legal expectations will vary depending on what you do. You may:
- employ people, meaning you may be subject to employment law requirements and pension contributions.
- offer goods and services to the public which will place an obligation on you to adhere to strict consumer laws.
- have a range of contracts, with customers, suppliers and others, and need to make sure that they are valid and reviewed regularly.
We’re here to help
We work closely with all our clients to build a deep understanding of the business and its sector, suppliers, customers and future plans. As local business solicitors, we aim to be a helpful partner at every stage of your business’s life.
We understand that legal advice for small businesses needs to be proportionate in cost and value, particularly at a time when you have other priorities. We can offer legal advice in a number of ways to best suit you and your business, including:
- one-off questions or queries
- tailored assistance with specific projects or transactions
- access to regular advice and support across all of our commercial departments at a reduced hourly rate with our SME Support Days
- a review of your policies and processes with our SME Health Check
An experienced small business lawyer will handle your account, and a member of the team will always be available to speak to on a day to day basis.
