Setting up and Investing in Businesses

Whether you are an entrepreneur or an investor, we can help you set up or invest in business.  We can also advise on the right structure for your business and ensure you have the right agreements in place for every stage of your business.

When starting a new business, it is vital that the right structure is chosen and the correct agreements are in place to set up the business for long-term success.

We have a great deal of experience in advising both new and experienced business owners in the structure and the documents that they will need to best start their business off on the right foot.  We recognise that each business is different and take pains to understand your particular needs.

Depending on whether you are setting up in business on your own, or with others, and your plans for the growth and expansion of your business, we can advise you on the risks and rewards of different structures such as limited company, limited or unlimited partnerships, or contractual collaborations.

Once you have decided on the right structure for you we can prepare and advise you on the documents you will need for that structure, and we can also ensure that you have any other agreements in place (such as IP assignments, or supplier contracts).

If you are coming into an existing business we can advise you on whether any structural changes need to be made and on any accession agreements; we can also advise on buy-outs and exits and more complex corporate structurings.
