Start-ups and structure
We know how challenging starting your business can be. That is why our dedicated team is always on the stand-by to offer you the advice you need to succeed.
There is a large number of factors to consider when you are just planning on starting a new business. At OTS Solicitors we believe that prevention is better than curing. That is why part of our services are specifically dedicated to those still at the stage of planning for their future business.
Our specialists will advise you on the most suitable medium for your business: be it sole trader, Limited Liability Company or partnership. We will advise you on choosing the right structure for your business, help you to understand the implications of your choice, the applicable regulations and will guide you through the steps you need to take to comply with the relevant rules.
Our team can also assist you with the procedural formalities needed to get your business started including:

Just like starting a new business, an established business is in constant need of legal support. At OTS Solicitors we are committed to offering you the support you need to properly run your business. Often enough the value of good legal advice in the success of the business is underestimated, many seeking out professional help only when the problems have already arisen. While our specialists are always ready to exercise competent damage control and assist you in dealing with your legal difficulties, we also offer services that will help you avoid the stress of such complications.
When running a business it is important to understand that knowing and complying with relevant legal requirements is an essential part of doing business. Our team is always ready to assist and advise you on such matter, making sure you do not incur unwanted liabilities.
