Shareholder legal advice

Effective shareholder management is a cornerstone of any successful business. Whether you're launching a new startup or navigating the compliance of an established small business, the significance of adept shareholder management cannot be overstated.

Why shareholder management is important

Shareholders, with their diverse backgrounds and motivations, may have varying expectations and objectives. Proper shareholder management helps harmonise these interests with the overarching goals of the company. This alignment cultivates trust and unity among shareholders, essential for the success of any enterprise.

As your business grows, so do the intricacies of shareholder relationships and well-executed shareholder management adapts to accommodate growth, ensuring a seamless transition into new phases of development.

Frequently asked questions

LawBite is the modern way for SMEs to get the high quality legal advice they need, but faster and cheaper.

As we look to revolutionise the traditional legal process, this may raise a number of questions on how we operate to provide your business with legal advice for your business that is; easier to access, clearer to understand and more affordable.

We have brought together the most frequently asked questions from our customers.

Yes, here at LawBite we believe in helping all small businesses and we offer all new customers a free 15 minute consultation with one of our lawyers (we call them LawBriefs). We will do everything we can to make sure your call is the same or next working day. Our promise to you is that by the end of the initial call you will have a clear idea of the options available to you to progress your legal matter.
On the rare occasion that we cannot locate a specialist to assist your specific needs we will always do our best to put you in touch with one of our partner law firms. We can’t promise that they’ll have the same rates as the LawBriefs, but we’ll always try to locate the most cost effective option available.
For any piece of work we do you will always receive an upfront quote through the platform from the lawyer you have spoken to. If you have chosen an existing fixed price product (e.g. contract review) then the quote will reflect the fixed price for that product. If you need a service for which we need to create a bespoke quote for you then the quote will still be for a fixed price, but it will be given based on the number of hours the lawyer expects that piece of work to take.
If less time is spent than quoted, we will only charge for the actual time worked.
Work will not be carried out for you until you have accepted a quote through the site. If you accept such a quote you will not be charged any further sums over and above what has been quoted, unless we re-quote you for extra work through the site and you accept this re-quote.
Any quote or re-quote will not normally include any extra expenses other than the hourly rates plus VAT set out above, but if we do incur any genuine third party expenses on your behalf which you need to pay for (such as fees for a barrister) these will be specified in your quote (or re-quote) or in a separate quote for ‘disbursements’.
Once you have been quoted by your lawyer, you will receive a notification to check your messages within your dashboard. You can then click on the ‘Pay Fee’ button to add the item to your basket (it will display as “Quoted legal work”). 

You can then follow the instructions in the basket pay via debit or credit card (via the Stripe payment mechanism) according to the instructions found on the “Process Payment” page.

If for some reason this is not appropriate, we can also accept credit card payments over the phone or direct BACS transfers from your bank account. We will issue an invoice to you prior to arranging such an alternative payment method.
