Why do you feel the need to seek legal guidance for your startup?
The notion of launching a brand-new company may be both exhilarating and challenging at the same time. Despite the fact that you might be offering a fantastic service or product, it can be difficult and intimidating to think about the legal particulars involved. You don’t want to make any blunders, and there are a lot of potential risks, especially at this point in the process.
A startup solicitor may assist you in a wide variety of areas, including making decisions about the organisational structure of your new company and ensuring that you are in compliance with employment regulations when you hire your first employees. The legal system in the UK is convoluted and is always being updated. Therefore, it is quite vital to obtain the appropriate startup advice as early on in the process as possible.
Are you pondering whether or not you will require the assistance of a startup lawyer while establishing your new company?
For instance, are you in the process of hiring employees for the very first time and want to ensure that the employment contract for your firm is in accordance with applicable laws? Do you want a structure for your new business that allows you to take advantage of investor-friendly tax regimes such as the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)? Do you want to make sure that the company controls any intellectual property that is created by your contractors for your new startup business?
