Spring, with the appearance of daffodils and lambs, is a reminder that growth and new opportunities are all around us. Driving a company to grow can be one of the most exciting and challenging times for business owners.
It’s crucial that any business looking to grow has its legal foundations in order. Now would be the perfect time for a spring clean. Do your company’s Articles allow it the flexibility that a modern company requires? Do you have a written lease from your landlord? Are your employment contracts up to date? Does that key contract contain any onerous provisions?
If you are seeking investment, any investor who wishes to help a business grow will want to undertake due diligence. This is a process of obtaining key commercial and legal information about your business. Your replies to due diligence can dictate whether you receive investment or not and it’s therefore crucial to ensure your house is legally in order.
When considering a growth strategy or an investment it is important to receive top quality legal advice. As a firm Swinburne Maddision LLP can assist you every step of the way providing you with the legal support that you require to ensure that your business gets growing.
