Business Structures and Start Ups

Our specialist team can advise you upon the most appropriate type of structure for your business.

We appreciate that the costs associated with setting up a new business can be prohibitive.  We are passionate about business and our support for entrepreneurs. In some cases we have assisted fledging businesses mature into large operations employing hundreds of people with tens of millions of pounds of turnover.

Unfortunately, not all of our clients are so successful but we do recognise that even the most successful business was once a small business or start up.

Starting your Own Business – Free advice

We provide free guides and standard templates and documents via our Growth Centre.  This support is generic, but is a useful starting point where there is little or no money available for more tailored advice.  We have an extensive network of contacts that we can introduce you to support you in your accounting, financial and property needs.  We have also helped businesses secure grant support.

Company formations – Fixed fee

We offer a fixed fee company formation service. For further details please email

Partnerships and LLPs

We have extensive experience in advising clients upon partnerships and limited liability partnerships and in documenting those arrangements. Sometimes a limited liability partnership may allow more flexibility in income than a traditional corporate structure.  A more complex business may include both an LLP and a limited company or companies

More Complex Corporate Structures

Some companies may require more specific documentation from the outset, perhaps in the context of joint ventures or because of the different status of different participants, where bespoke articles of association and shareholders' agreements may be required.  Other changes may arise from a reorganisation or a purchase of shares or the purchase of a business.

A complete start-up service

We can also assist you with your property needs, employment contracts, terms and conditions and intellectual property protection, building our relationship as your business grows.
