Small Businesses

The Addis Law team of lawyers work across a broad range of sectors, from science and technology to manufacturing

Working with small and very small businesses is an important part of our practice. This includes working with people who have an idea for a business and who need help and advice on how to make it a reality.

We help small businesses to run smoothly and avoid problems. We can help you with setting up your website and making sure you give your customers the right terms and conditions, to making sure that all your business relationships are set up in a professional way that protects you if things go wrong.

We will always tell you what our costs will be before we start any work, if it is feasible to do so.  We don’t charge for our time, we charge for the finished job.  This helps make it easier for you to pick up the phone to us when you need answers.

We have a mutual interest in making your business be the best that it can be – success for you also means success for us. No business is too small to benefit from professional help.

If you think this sounds interesting, then give us a call.  We’d love to chat to you about your business and how we can help.  We do this for free.  You can decide later if you want us to help you.

Some of our recent work includes:

  • drafting ecommerce terms and conditions for a web based trading system;
  • incorporation and advice on shareholder and partnership structures for various small trading and education businesses;
  • succession planning for small business owners; and
  • sales in the region of £100,000 to £1 million.

We appointed Addis Law in April 2019 to act on our behalf (the management team) in relation to a management buy-out of consultancy firm, EEVS, from its plc owner.

We worked closely with Sally through detailed contract drafting, due diligence and negotiations and, ultimately, to the successful completion of the Sale and Purchase Agreement and related documentation in July 2019.

Throughout this process the Addis Law team provided the highest quality legal counsel and professional expertise; whilst Sally’s calm and considered approach meant she remained unflappable and diligent throughout, and especially at the business-end of the deal.  Sally is an excellent communicator and was always highly responsive, keeping us up-to-date and well-informed throughout. In a transaction like this, the confidence and reassurance this provided was absolutely invaluable. Similarly, Sally and wider Addis Law team all worked extremely hard on our behalf, going  well above and beyond to get the deal done by the deadline day – for this we remain very grateful.

Impressive throughout, I would have no hesitation in recommending Addis Law to successfully deliver a corporate transaction like ours.
