Starting Your Own Business

We recognise that starting your own business is both an exciting and daunting experience and that cashflow can be limited. Our aim is to build a lasting relationship with you as your business changes and to provide sector-specific advice to help you achieve your goals.

Below are a list of the items that we can support you to put in place to start your journey. The essential legal services that you might need are:

  • Structure Advice
  • Company Formation
  • Articles and Memorandum of Association
  • Data Protection Compliance – GDPR
  • Health and Safety Compliance
  • Terms and Conditions
  • Website Policies
  • Shareholders Agreements
  • Intellectual Property

Our Property Team can advise you on taking you first premises, whilst our experienced Employment Team can guide you to draft contracts of employment and a handbook as you expand to take on staff for the first time. Should you struggle to get your debts collected, our Dispute Resolution team can assist in recovering your money or indeed if a contractor hasn’t performed according to an agreement.

We would love to work with your business as a partner for its legal needs and challenges and love nothing more than seeing a great new local businesses grow and develop.

We are members of the Lawyers for Business scheme which means we offer new businesses a free 30 minute consultation to discuss their needs and advise on which services you need to make your business idea happen. To organise your initial meeting, please contact Andrew Bradley at:, telephone us on: 01905 900919 or use our contact form here.
