Clough & Willis launches bespoke legal package for start up businesses

Clough & Willis - one of the North West's leading mid-sized legal firms - has this week launched a new fixed fee service that has been designed to help small businesses with all their legal requirements during the initial set up phase.

The Small Business Start-Up Package has been created as one stop function that covers all the key areas new companies need to think about when establishing themselves. The Corporate team at Clough & Willis - which is headed up by Shahid Azam - will provide an initial consultation, review and advise on the legal structure of each business, prepare any necessary basic shareholder or partnership agreements, recommend terms of business with customers or suppliers, advise on the general aspects of owning and running a business and it will also supply a skeleton letter of demand.

In addition, free 30 minute briefings with an employment specialist, credit control expert and debt recovery solicitor can be arranged if necessary. The cost for the new service is £895 + VAT for limited companies and £550 + VAT for sole traders, plus any necessary third party fees that maybe incurred.

Shahid commented; "As a firm, we appreciate the UK's economic recovery will be built on the efforts and success of SMEs. Setting up a new business can be a daunting and costly prospect; all too often we see clients who haven't been advised correctly at the outset which can be hugely problematic so the aim of this new package is to make sure the process is simple, hassle free, thorough and cost effective.”
