For Your Business

Cost-Effective And Fully Integrated Solutions

Starting a business is challenging. Keeping your business on track and dealing with succession raises just as many legal and financial hurdles. Based in South Hams, Devon, SWLaw supports a wide range of businesses, offering specialist and objective legal advice.

In addition to the commercial legal expertise of our solicitors, we are able to offer specialist advice on financial products for your business and the specifics of corporate taxation through our dedicated team of financial advisers.

Starting A Business On The Right Footing Moving On When The Time Is Right

We take a long-term view because business is unpredictable. Sometimes urgent firefighting is unavoidable, but usually by standing back from the day-to-day deadlines and pressures, you can develop more effective strategies for developing business and increasing profits.

  • Starting out — We draw all necessary elements together to help you successfully launch your business. The typical issues we cover include the legal structure, purchase and lease of company premises; employment advice; staff training issues; protection of intellectual property; drafting terms and conditions; and other contracts.
  • Day-to-day management — We work with established businesses of all sizes, helping owners and managers respond to the challenges of running a company. Services include advice on employment and health and safety law, protecting company assets, including intellectual property, dispute resolution and the implementation of risk management strategies.
  • Looking to the future — Don't be forced into getting out of your business before you want to or when the time is not quite right. With a carefully planned exit strategy, you can ensure the seamless transition of ownership to key staff, family members or a third-party buyer. We encourage you to make succession an integral part of your business plan.
