17 Jan 2019

When it comes to setting up your own business, we understand that every decision you make is personal. From the contractors you hire to the insurance policies you take out, you’ll have your business’ success and your own personal business aspirations at the heart of everything you do.

That’s why it’s important to work with professionals who understand how important your business is, for your livelihood but also as part of the bigger picture.

Your business could be the result of years’ of hard work, or a brand new idea you’re taking a calculated risk with. No matter what your plans are, it’s important that you choose a small business solicitor who understands the specifics of business law, and who can support you through any challenges you might come up against.

Frank and Honest Legal Advice

At DRN, we pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients personalised advice that’s honest and easy to understand. In 2015, the Legal Services Board produced a report on the legal requirements and issues of small businesses in England and Wales, which found that SMEs lose an “estimated £9.79 billion annually due to legal problems.”

This figure could be greatly reduced by small business owners having access to appropriate legal advice right from the start. We make sure our business owner clients are fully up-to-date on all the relevant laws and legal requirements they need to know about, from employment law to taxes, so that you can be fully prepared and secure your business for the future.

DRN’s Lancashire-based small business lawyers are specialists in helping small businesses like yours succeed, by supporting you with legal issues that may arise.

Unlike other lawyers, our solicitors are experts in the legal complexities of small business law, and as a result, we can give you more specialised advice that related exactly to your matters at hand.

We can help you with: Choosing the right business structure for your business Registering your business name Sourcing and securing financing and investment opportunities Creating contracts, including non-disclosure agreements, shareholders agreements, and contracts of employment Patents and protecting your intellectual property Legal compliance Advice and compliance with data law and GDPR

Professional Support

Whenever a legal issue arises, we understand that it’s in your interest to resolve it quickly and with the least amount of disruption to your business. Most issues arising in small businesses, especially within their first 12-18 months of trading, can be avoided by obtaining proper advice in the first place.

Many legal challenges faced by small businesses, such as those arising from tax, employment or compliance, can be easy to lose sight of when you’re running a business. DRN’s small business legal professionals are experts in the field, so you can trust them to be thorough and comprehensive, never overlooking a single thing.
