Starting a new business can be an exciting yet daunting experience. With the challenges that will lie ahead, it is important to give thought at the outset to the structure your business should take, whether from commencement or as a future goal.
There are many forms of businesses from the very simple sole trader to more complicated partnerships, incorporated / registered companies to large PLCs which have become household names. Each form of business will have its own legal requirements and practical challenges and it is our role to discuss with you the structure best suited to your particular needs.
Once the most suitable form of business has been identified, we can help in the setting up process which might involve advice on and / or drafting of:
• Partnership Agreements
• Memorandum and Articles of Association
• Contracts- including terms of trading
• Director and Shareholder Agreements
• Joint Venture Agreements
• Tax / VAT
Once your business is up and running we can assist you with everyday matters or provide specific legal advice on a particular issue – our aim is not only to be there at the start-up phase but to assist you throughout the life of your business, where ever it may lead to or whatever firm it may evolve into.
