Help for New and Small Businesses
Small Business / New Business
New and small businesses are the key to the UK's economic growth and Burnetts is committed to helping micro businesses in Cumbria and Newcastle get off on the right foot.
Free Legal Advice & Events
The firm offers free legal advice to start-up and new businesses through the Head Start Scheme and also provides a programme of webinars and seminars to give growing businesses unobstructed access to our expert solicitors. Find out more about our latest events here.
Whatever your area of business, there are also free e-bulletins to keep you up to date with the latest legal news and changes in legislation. Sign up here.
Affordable Policies and Contracts
Getting the legals right at the beginning can make a big difference to the long-term success of a business. Ensuring that good contracts and policies are in place will save time and money in the long-run and protect the business from employee or other contract disputes. Burnetts provides affordable suites of employment law documents and web documents to keep new businesses compliant. Details of the policies we offer can be found here.
Health & Safety
Complying with Health and Safety legislation is perhaps one of the biggest worries for a small business. To ease those concerns, we have developed a B Safer Health & Saefty package especially for small businesses.
Coming soon - Protect yourself from the costs of an Employment Tribunal Claim. We will soon be offering a tailor made insurance package to cover legal fees in the event of an Employment Tribunal Claim being made against you.
