Business Structures

Commercial Law Solicitors in Salisbury & Chippenham

Whether you are  just starting up or an established business, it is essential to consider how best to structure your business and to make sure that you have the paperwork in place to protect you and your business. 

We can liaise with your accountant and other advisors in order to ensure that the foundations of your business structure are sound,  thus minimising any unwanted costs in the event that you need to restructure further down the line.

If you in business with someone else, either as a partnership or as shareholders in a company, it is important to ensure that you are very clear about the rules of your business relationship.  A shareholder or partnership agreement can ensure that you have the structure and agreements in place to deal with how decisions are made and to provide procedures for situations that may arise during the life of the business, such as the long-term illness or death of one of you.

Our commercial department can help you with the following:

  • Setting up new businesses
  • Partnership Agreements
  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Joint Venture Agreements
  • Drafting Articles of Association
  • New partners or shareholders joining the business
  • The sale of the business or the purchase of a new one
  • Succession and retirement planning
  • Employment law issues including TUPE, redundancies and outsourcing
