Running a small business in the UK comes with its share of challenges, from navigating complex legal requirements to ensuring compliance with the latest regulations. Act Legal is a law firm dedicated to supporting small businesses across the nation, providing legal expertise and guidance to help you thrive. Here’s how our legal services can benefit your small business:

1. Company Formation and Structure Advice

Starting a business involves several legal decisions, including the choice of the business structure, which can impact your tax liabilities, personal liabilities, and ability to raise capital. Act Legal offers expert advice on the formation of your business, helping you choose the right structure whether it’s a sole proprietorship, partnership, or limited company. We handle all the legal paperwork and filings, ensuring you’re set up efficiently and compliantly.

2. Contract Drafting and Review

Contracts are the backbone of any business operation, covering everything from supplier agreements to customer terms and conditions. Act Legal provides comprehensive contract services, drafting clear and enforceable contracts that protect your business interests. We also offer contract review services to ensure that agreements you enter are in your business’s best interest and legally sound.

3. Employment Law Compliance

As your business grows and you start hiring employees, you’ll need to comply with UK employment laws. This includes everything from drafting employment contracts to understanding your obligations regarding employee rights and benefits. Act Legal helps ensure that your employment practices comply with the law, minimising the risk of disputes and legal issues with employees.

4. Intellectual Property Protection

For many businesses, intellectual property (IP) is a critical asset. Act Legal assists in identifying and protecting your intellectual property, from trademarks and copyrights to patents, ensuring that your ideas and brand are safeguarded from infringement. Our services include IP registration, management, and enforcement, helping you to maintain a competitive edge in your market.

5. Dispute Resolution and Litigation

Disputes, whether with customers, suppliers, or competitors, can be costly and time-consuming. Act Legal provides strategic advice on dispute resolution and, if necessary, robust representation in litigation. We focus on resolving disputes efficiently to minimise their impact on your business operations and finances.

6. Regulatory Compliance

Staying abreast of the latest regulations and legal changes is crucial but can be overwhelming. Act Legal offers ongoing support to ensure your business complies with all relevant laws and regulations, such as data protection laws and industry-specific requirements. This proactive approach helps prevent legal issues and fines associated with non-compliance.
