We understand the need to create the right legal frame work to assist and support companies in their early life – it is fundamental to the foundations of how that company will grow and develop.
We pride ourselves in having an exceptional client base that includes commercial clients at all stages of the company life cycle, many of whom were startups that have gone from strength to strength and are now valued clients. We assist companies in developing and honing their ideas within a legal context to ensure all bases are covered, giving you peace of mind that you will not fall foul of the law, and minimising your risk of loss, which is important especially when starting out.
We spend time getting to know your business to understand what you need from us now, and also advise you what you may need in the future. We can help you consider the legal structure of your business, shareholder issues, intellectual property considerations, advice on non-disclosure agreements and regulatory matters. Where you have specific requests relating to tax, or employment law, we work with excellent professionals in the area, or refer you to our Employment Team who can deal with these queries, giving you rounded service to support you right from the start.
