And putting our clients at ease
At Simpkins & Co Solicitors we know that running a business can be complex. The range of regulatory requirements and legislation affecting businesses changes frequently and it can be hard to keep yourself aware of these changes and fully compliant to all your legal obligations.
We are extremely proud of our reputation for being friendly and approachable and having an expanding list of commercial business clients. We do not believe in over-complicating legal matters, and only deal in the areas we specialise in: personal injury, employment law, clinical negligence and business advice.
We offer a range of business support and legal services, working within different sectors and company sizes, from individual entrepreneurs and small start-ups to larger, more established firms.
At Simpkins & Co Solicitors we also have a Polish Division specifically providing legal assistance from our Polish speaking legal team. This is an expanding area of our work as the number of Polish entrepreneurs starting up in the UK continues to grow year on year.
For entrepreneurs and business start-ups we can provide tailored legal advice in relation to setting up your company, partnership and business agreements, and any other contractual matters or issues that may arise. We can explain the different options and advise on the best one for your business; partnership, limited company or limited liability partnership.
