Why do start up businesses require legal advice and support?

Starting a new business can be a minefield of legislation, regulations and unexpected challenges. In fact, 20% of SMEs fail within the first year and 50% fail within the first five years, often as a result of underestimating just how much needs to be done “behind the scenes” of a small business.

  • Drafting terms and conditions of your business

  • Developing key commercial contracts, such as:

    • Shareholder agreements

    • Partnership agreements

    • Contractual agreements

    • Director’s service contracts

    • International commercial agreements

  • Supporting you with business premises acquisition

  • Creating asset purchase agreements

  • Establishing supply chain agreements, including:

    • Distribution agreements
