Free individual advice from a fully qualified, experienced solicitor in these areas:

Corporate Law

We can discuss business structures and how to put the appropriate framework and documentation in place to regulate the management of the business and the relationship between the shareholders/partners.

Investing and incentives

We can discuss company structure, including balance sheet considerations, and whether reliefs such as SEIS and EIS may be available.

It is also important to incentivise and retain key employees and there are a number of tax efficient ways to achieve this. We can discuss the tax advantages of different share option schemes and which may be the most appropriate for your business.

Employment Law

Employees are essential to driving forward any business, so it’s important that they are properly managed and rewarded. We can discuss a full range of employment matters, from recruitment, employment contracts and day to day HR queries to disputes and dismissals.

Commercial & Technology

Your first contract is your most important and in an increasingly competitive world, robust commercial agreements give business owners protection and certainty when dealing with customers and suppliers. We can help ensure you are properly protected through the use of clear and understandable contracts and provide other day-to-day business advice. We can also help you speed up the contracting process, improve customer experience and accelerate revenue.
