Start Ups

We know that various aspects of the law can seem complex, especially when you are starting out in business. Our experienced commercial solicitors will make it simpler for you. We can guide you through the legal process, step by step, and put everything you need in place to help your business hit the ground running. We will explain everything in plain English, and keep the jargon (and your costs) to a bare minimum.


We work in partnership with many SMEs, and we take great pride in watching their businesses thrive. As you grow we can continue to support your business by providing tailored legal advice covering all aspects of the law, whilst retaining our expertise of the sector in which you specialise. Our services include commercial and employment law, as well as advice in resolving any legal hiccups that may arise along the way.

We understand the importance of keeping track of budgets, so wherever possible we offer fixed pricing. Our solicitors will always be transparent with the costs, and you will always be updated on pricing throughout the process.
