Our network of law firms provides specialist legal expertise that can help you run your business more efficiently.
For only £195 + VAT, QualitySolicitors law firms can offer 1½ hours’ worth of legal advice during Business Advice Meetings that you can use to address some specific legal issue that may affect your business, or carry out a legal audit of your business to check that you’re operating within the law.
We think this this offers unbelievable value, especially when you consider the long-term business benefits that could be achieved for such a small initial outlay.
Whether you’ve been trading for years or you’re just setting up, you can use your Business Advice Meetings for us to carry out an audit of the key legal issues needed for a healthy and successful business.
We can guide you through the options available to your business, and then make specific recommendations regarding the next steps you could take to protect you, your family and your business.
You can use your Business Law Advice Meetings time to address whichever issues you want to explore of course. Here’s how Business Advice Meetings have helped other business owners recently:
Do you have a shareholders’ agreement or partnership agreement in place that would protect you and the business if a shareholder or partner wants to leave, dies or falls out with you? We can also advise you on restructuring your business so it can trade on the best legal foundation to achieve your aims.
If you are considering renting or buying new premises this is a major financial decision with many issues to consider. Our advice can protect your business against long-term costs or problems hidden in the legal documents that could hamper the growth of your business. It makes sense to take legal advice on the terms being offered before you commit yourself.
We can also advise on compliance with all the regulations you will need to follow (such as fire regulations and asbestos risk assessments). In this way we can help you make highly informed decisions for your business with confidence.
Whenever you have people working for you there is a large number of regulations you will need to comply with – both to protect you and your business and to prevent expensive problems further down the line. We can advise on your contracts of employment and the employment policy documents that apply to your particular business.
We can also help you with any issues or problems raised by your staff; we’re sure the last thing you’d want, for example, is the cost and bad publicity of court action.
Whether dealing with customers or suppliers you’ll want to ensure that your business is protected and that your legal liability is limited if anything goes wrong and that you’re paid promptly.
The law sometimes changes on issues relating to business arrangements – so we can help to make sure your contracts are up-to-date and enforceable. If they’re not effective, they can’t protect or support you and may actually be useless.
If you’re business has a problem with getting paid promptly then we may be able to help. Whether it’s a problem with a particular customer or a more general debt recovery issue, we can explain and perhaps even demonstrate how the law can be used to help you.
Selling products or services online (or by mail order or telesales), or at the homes of your customers, means that special rules apply to your business.
The rules are complex and need to be applied to the way your business operates, and if you don’t comply then your customers are given extra rights; which may mean they can cancel their agreement with you and get their money back. Don’t get caught out – take advice!
If you have a trade name or logo, we can advise you on how to effectively avoid the risk of a competitor using it without your permission by registering it. You may also have a business idea that is original, different or unique; we can advise on the steps you can take to protect it or to defend a challenge to your ownership of it.
Have you thought about what would happen to your business if you died or suffered an injury or illness that meant you lost the capacity to run it? (Your husband or wife or business partners do not have the automatic rights you might have expected...)
Without the right legal protection in place your death might force an immediate end to the business and an enforced sale of the assets (which might cause financial loss, or an increased estate that triggers an inheritance tax payment that could have been avoided).
You can protect everyone concerned – and your business – with a “business will” and devices such as ‘trusts’ and ‘lasting powers of attorney’, and we would of course advise what the best form of protection is for your particular circumstances.
Here’s how to get specific business law advice for just £195 + VAT.
Call us on 01978227280 for our Free First Advice. We’ll then assess your situation for free and there’s no obligation for you to take things any further.

Most business owners book a first 45-minute session and leave the remaining 45 minutes for a follow up meeting, but if you want one 1½-hour meeting then that’s fine of course.
You can pay the full fee of £195 + VAT over the phone or directly at the office on the day of your session, by cheque, debit or credit card.
We’ll then send you a VAT invoice so you can claim back the VAT. If your business isn’t registered for VAT then let us know and we’ll pay the VAT for you – so your Business Advice Meeting will still only cost £195.
As mentioned earlier, most business owners prefer to book in two separate 45-minute face to face meetings, where all the time is dedicated to you and your business’s legal situation.
We’ll happily provide guidance as to the best way to use your time to achieve your aims – whether it is answering your questions, giving advice on your particular situation, reviewing paperwork, providing help with writing a letter, or completing legal forms.
Our aim is that you’ll leave us knowing more about how the law will impact on your business.
Even if 1½ hours of law advice hasn’t completely solved your legal issue, we’ll do everything we can to ensure you’ll understand where you stand and give you clear next steps for your business.
At QualitySolicitors we always tell all our customers upfront what the price will be for any work we do, so you know what you’re getting from us and what it’s going to cost.
So here’s a summary of what you’ll get from our £195 + VAT Business Advice Meetings service:
We’re flexible. Many people find it works best to have two 45-minute sessions with their solicitor. That way, the first session can be used to discuss your legal issues, and the second session can clarify our advice in full detail.
Our face-to-face attention will help you address your legal issues efficiently. We’re here to help, and we’re here to give you as much business support as you want, in order to give you that competitive advantage and achieve your aims.
YBusiness advice, in person, from an experienced lawyer who understands ‘business’ as well as ‘law’ (we run a small business of our own, remember). We’ll really get to know your business and your objectives so we hope that, over time, you’ll come to view us as your trusted ‘go to’ legal adviser.
We tailor all advice based on your precise circumstances, and we don’t do confusing jargon; so you can be sure of clear, ‘plain English’ advice that you can use in the real world.
You can even chat to us first for free, so we can clarify the legal issue that you want help with. Your time is valuable, so having this free chat first helps us to move quickly when you do eventually come in for your meeting.
