Running Your Business

Your business is unique and legal expectations will vary depending on what you do. From the outset, you will need to know your obligations and, more importantly, satisfy them. Our specialist team of business lawyers can help.

You may employ people meaning you may be subject to employment law requirements and pension contributions. You may offer goods and services to the public which will place an obligation on you to adhere to strict consumer laws.

We can offer a variety of options for businesses such as:

  • answers to one-off questions or queries;
  • assistance on a specific project or transaction; or
  • access to regular advice and support across all of our commercial departments for a fixed monthly cost.

We build our packages around your needs and as one of Exeter’s best-known SME law firms, our team understands that legal advice for start-ups or smaller businesses needs to be proportionate in cost and value, particularly at a time when you have other priorities.

We work closely with all our clients to build a deep understanding of the business, sector, suppliers and customers and future plans. We hope to be a helpful partner for businesses at every stage of life.

An experienced 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.

I must say personally that I find your approach to offering advice on business law very fresh and uncomplicated and look forward to working together more frequently in the future.
