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.
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.
If your new company has shareholders, our bespoke shareholders’ agreements will help to regulate the relationship between them.
Any other document or assistance that may be required
Our assistance goes beyond getting your business off the ground, we are committed to helping your company expand and aim to ensure that you enjoy continued success.
