Business management FAQ

Why does my business need legal help?

I want to start a new business: What do I do?
If you’ve formed a plan to start a new company, you’ll want to get it registered as soon as possible. But, before you do so, there are a few important points to consider.

Past the ideas stage, one thing you’ve probably already considered is the name of your company. You’ll need to choose a name as well as a website domain that is not in use or trademarked against; one that represents your brand and your companies values. You can check with Companies House to find out whether your desired name is available. Past this, you’ll need to think about which structure or business formation is appropriate for your company. There are various options for formations, so getting legal advice on which one will suit your business needs before making a decision is a wise idea. After settling on a business structure, registering your business with Companies House requires certain essential details, notably the details of shareholders and directors. Further to this, if the idea for your business is a completely new product or service or offers something unique, we recommend protecting your intellectual property as soon as possible. Rather than trying to rush through the process to get your business off the ground, you should take the time to weigh up your options to decide which ones will benefit your company. That’s why our dedicated solicitors will be there to provide detailed advice to help you get off the ground.

Running a business successfully involves patience and experience. When you work with Talbots Law, we’ll take care of all the legal aspects of managing your business, providing pragmatic advice that’s tailored around your corporate needs. To get started, give us a call on 0800 118 1500.
