Helping you get your small business up and running

Starting your first small business, or indeed adding new ventures to add to your existing commercial concerns, can be a daunting prospect.

Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates are experts in helping you and other budding entrepreneurs to set up a new business, from individual tradesmen who want to protect their family home and assets to those embarking on multi million pound ventures.

Making the right strategic business structure decisions from the outset is essential, and seeking appropriate, professional legal advice will help you avoid potential pitfalls, especially if you want to protect your personal assets by trading as a limited company.

Many people who are setting up in business for the first time get themselves into early difficulties by buying a company ‘off the shelf’ and starting to trade, but this is not sufficient to protect you.

Ormrods deal with a comprehensive range of business and company law matters, from issues concerning private entrepreneurs to advising corporate boards on strategic policy.

Our aim is to give you the legal tools and insight to help you make informed decisions for greater business success.

We can assist you with company formation, establishing new business structures, buying companies, restructuring finances, working as a dedicated team with bankers, accountants and other professional advisors to ensure your venture is an ongoing success.

In addition, it’s our goal to give you much more than basic company law advice: we seek to develop long-term professional relationships by adding value to your start up business, so you always think of us to handle your future legal needs.

Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates can assist you with company transactions such as:

  • Formation, acquisition and transfer of ownership for new companies
  • Amendment of company structure, shareholders and directors
  • Transfer, disposal and acquisition of shares and assets
  • Commercial contracts and agreements
  • Intellectual property rights and IT related matters
  • Employment tribunal, employment appeal tribunal and human resources legal advice
  • Restructuring finances, financial arrangements and documentation and funding agreements.
