For your piece of mind, see us first

No matter how big or small, as a business operator you will require advice from time to time. This might be assistance when setting up the business, in the running of the business, and particularly before buying or when selling. You may need to discuss your lease or purchase of business premises, or to discuss which enterprise structure suits you best - sole trader, partnership, company or trust.

Clifton Legal advises businesses of all types and sizes when decisions are required about the conduct and operation of the business, particularly where the decisions will have a long-term impact on the successful operation of the business. We are a small business ourselves so we understand the problems and workings of a small business. We are especially aware of the pitfalls and delicate touch needed around areas such as debt recovery and succession planning.
