When starting or growing a business, it’s important to consider what legal structure will give you the best chance of success. There are several options to explore, including sole proprietorship, partnership, and limited company. Each structure has its own legal considerations, liability implications, and tax obligations that should be thoroughly understood before making a decision.
Whether you are seeking further investment into your business for future growth or you are seeking to invest in a new business for the first time, it is important that you are properly advised by a team who have experience of seeing the bigger picture.

There will be a host of options in terms of the potential legal documentation to be drafted and completed once initial terms have been agreed upon.
Both the founders of the company/business and the potential investors will need proactive, pragmatic, constructive legal representation to guide them through the process and ensure that all parties achieve their goals and ensure a fair and balanced relationship is created and reflected within:
- Appropriate levels of due diligence
- Investment Agreements that are fair to all parties;
- Changes to share capital and Articles of Association to achieve a balance between the parties;
- Loan documentation both secured and unsecured;
- Option agreements;
- Appropriate Warranties and Indemnities.
Our approach is based on collaboration, not confrontation and is designed to ensure that everyone feels fairly treated and ready to achieve the common goals of all the parties.
