Starting a new business is an exciting time but one that can also be challenging and stressful. Ensuring that you have good-quality legal advice available is very important and can be the difference to making a success of your new venture.
Across the firm, Edwin Coe understands the challenges that face people starting a new business and we pride ourselves on our ability to provide high quality, timely and cost-effective start up legal advice across the range of our practice areas.
From a corporate perspective, this can range from assisting with the choice of the business medium through which the new venture will be carried on – a private company, a public company, a limited liability partnership or as a sole trader – through to preparing suitable forms of shareholders’ agreements or partnership agreements.
Our corporate team is particularly keen to work with entrepreneurs and young companies to ensure that your legal requirements are promptly, efficiently and cost-effectively dealt with, allowing you to spend the time on what really matters: making a success of your business.
Working closely with other teams across the firm, we can put-together a comprehensive suite of legal services that can help you make the best possible start to your new venture.
For example, our property team can assist with the idiosyncrasies of landlords and commercial tenancies agreements, helping you to secure the premises you need. Our intellectual property group can carry out a fixed-price intellectual property review to help ensure that your valuable intellectual property – your business name, your trademarks, your know-how etc – is properly protected from day one in order to ensure that nobody can take advantage of your hardwork. And our employment team has extensive experience in acting for business owners right from inception and has developed a pack of basic, starter documents for new ventures which provide a starting point for employment contracts, directors’ service contracts and staff handbooks.
By putting together a suite of offerings, across the firm, tailored to the needs of entrepreneurs and young companies, Edwin Coe is perfectly placed to help you make a success of your new business.
Edwin Coe LLP combines solid knowledge with a practical approach.
