Start-ups and Smaller Businesses

At Wolferstans we fully understand the challenges that start-up and smaller businesses can face, especially when scaling-up; from knowing how many employees you are going to require, to finding a premises that’s suitable for your business.

We are perfectly aligned to provide the services that you will require, whether that be employment, commercial property or corporate support and have substantial expertise to support ambitious businesses. Our wealth of experience in these areas means that we can tailor our advice to your specific circumstance and priorities.

If you are a start-up, it is never too early to take legal advice. Are you working in a partnership without an agreement? Is your business structured correctly? Do your contracts of employment provide you with sufficient protection and comply with the minimum legal obligations? Are the contracts with your supply chain suitable?

We are offering a free business review to help to provide you with piece of mind over your key legal documents and to then be on hand to provide legal advice as and when you might require it.
