Business Start Ups

Having been founded by entrepreneurial partners as a new type of business law firm, Fox Williams prides itself in understanding first-hand the challenges, risks and rewards involved in starting, building and sustaining a business.

We also appreciate that when time and resources are scarce, legal concerns often take a back seat.  However, getting the legal basics right from the start, can go a long way in smoothing the road for your business' future success. 

Our specialist departments can assist you with all legal aspects of your new venture from the word go. It is never too early to contact us for a free consultation. We pride ourselves in not only offering bespoke legal services but also our ability to provide strategic, practical and commercial advice. As well as assisting UK based entrepreneurs, we also have extensive experience in advising overseas based companies on their inward investment into the UK.

We are also able to introduce new businesses to other professional advisers (such as specialist accountants) as well as debt/equity providers.

A large number of our clients came to us during their infancy and have grown leaps and bounds. We always try to take a long term approach to our client’s business. We take great pleasure, not only in helping them get off the ground, but also in helping them grow over the years by providing legal and business advice throughout the life-cycle of the company.
