Whatever business you’re running or investing in, we take it seriously. We take the time to make sure we understand what you want to achieve, so we can give you advice in line with your objectives.
Getting the structure right
We’ve helped many people to invest in an existing business or to start one up from scratch. Most fundamental is advice on business model structuring.
We can help you to decide whether to invest in a business on your own or by using a company, a unit trust, a discretionary trust, a joint venture or a partnership. Whatever structure you decide is best for you, we’ll help you to document and implement it, keeping a close eye on the protection of your assets and interests.
You and your business partners
If you’re going into business with someone else, we can create an appropriate agreement which sets out the rules to cover the full range of contingencies in that business relationship.
This covers how to proceed if one party wants to sell, what happens if one party gets divorced or dies, arrangements for payment of expenses and capital and procedures for resolving disputes between business partners.
Once your business is up and running, we can offer you general commercial advice about any aspect of it. This includes intellectual property matters, tax, purchase or lease of business premises and employment of staff or contractors.
So we’ll never leave you in the lurch. As your business partners and trusted advisors, we’ll always be just a phone call away.
