Business Start-ups

When embarking on a new business start-up venture, it is essential to ensure it is grounded on solid legal foundations and good practice. This can involve advising on the best possible business structure, the relationship of the parties running the business and that you trade with your customers and suppliers on terms and conditions that protect you. Keeping your house in order at an early stage instils confidence in investors and customers and also minimises the risk of protracted and financially costly legal disputes later down the line.

At Mincoffs Solicitors, great care is taken to ensure clients receive expert advice at the earliest stages, with continuing support helping the business to grow. We have taken great pride as a number of our clients’ business ventures have flourished into large multi-million pound organisations operating on a national level.

Our business start-up solicitors provide the very best advice, tailored specifically to your new business, such as recommending potential avenues of funding that may be available for your new venture. Through close ties with a number of specialist advisers, we can also provide expert advice on accountancy matters, business development and product commercialisation issues, as well as technical intellectual property.
