Small businesses often require legal assistance. We regularly assist small business owners with matters ranging from starting the business, preparing and negotiating contracts, engaging employees, trade marking, all the way through to selling the business.
Our small business lawyers understand the stresses associated with starting and operating a small business and seek to at least make the legal side as stress-free as possible by offering cost effective and timely services.
Business Legal Services
A short list of services that we offer to small business owners include structuring a new business, incorporating companies and establishing trusts, preparing agreements for business owners such as partnership agreements and shareholder agreements, preparing website disclaimers and privacy policies, preparing terms and conditions, advising on security for payments, employees and independent contractors advice and agreements, drafting and reviewing leases, preparing contracts specific to the business (manufacturing agreements, distribution agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements etc.), lodging trade mark applications as well as general and specific corporate governance requirements.
Buying or Selling?
We also act for those looking to buy or sell a business including drafting the sale documents and facilitating the transfer of the business (often called a ‘business conveyance’).
We tell you the cost upfront and we stick to it. No surprises – just the one fixed fee.
