    How we support start-up business

    Incorporating your new company

    This is the first rung on the ladder; whilst the process may seem fairly straightforward there a number of potential pitfalls that our corporate expertise will protect you from.

    Drafting contracts

    These may include supply contracts with suppliers for certain services vital to your business, such as IT. Furthermore, in conjunction with the Employment & Regulatory department at Harrison Drury, we offer contracts of employment.

    Drafting terms and conditions

    Terms and conditions are always necessary if your company supplies goods or services. Our corporate team regularly reviews and drafts terms and conditions and are extremely proficient at making them as robust as possible and indeed at identifying when they are not adequate.
