Family Business Law

 

Although family business law is the heading, this encompasses the common types of business that Hewats as a High Street legal firm deal with in this rural part of the country with many small businesses.

This type of business can take many forms ranging from sole trader businesses, through informal and formal partnerships to Limited Companies.

It is important for any such business that they are properly set up and constituted, particularly where more than one individual will be involved in the business.  Legal advice at an early stage in the life of a business is highly recommended. A sound structure at the start of a business is important for the ongoing health of the business and also for the future of the business.

Once the business is up and running it is important that the business takes legal advice where legal issues arise concerning the running of the business and the operation of the business, including contracts, disputes and complying with changes in the law and legal requirements.

Issues such as the purchase or lease of property or assets or sale of property or assets may arise.  There may also be other changes to businesses including bringing in new individuals or partners or shareholders.

Finally, there will be succession planning for passing on or selling a business when you are looking to come out of your hopefully thriving business.

How Hewats can help

Hewats can assist with businesses and particularly family businesses, with advice and guidance to deal with these issues and other issues that can arise from time to time.

Hewats also have an extensive network of contacts in specialist and other non-legal sectors and are used to working on a team or joint basis with other business advisers.

If you are already involved in a business or are contemplating setting up a business or are concerned about the structure and future of your business Hewats would be happy to assist and give initial advice.

If you are interested in the services that Hewats can offer you please contact us and find out what we can do for you.
