Business owners face many challenges
Maybe a contract issue has sprung up, you have questions over the lease for premises or a dispute has arisen that is causing you concern. This is amplified by the current economic conditions and for many, the impact of Brexit.
All common issues that SMEs face on a regular basis. Adding to this, business rules are also changing. You could be trying to get your head around how to register a trademark, comply with new GDPR rules or hiring workers from the EU.
Getting expert legal advice often makes the difference between success or failure. But the cost for all this sounds pretty expensive!!
SMEs have spoken
We did some recent market research with YouGov and it produced some striking insight:
- Up to 20% of SMEs feel that business lawyers do not cater for the needs of smaller businesses
- Nearly 30% of all business feel that legal fees are overpriced (over 35% in smaller firms)
- 45% of firms feel that the high cost of legal fees prevent them from engaging with a lawyer
Running a business in the UK, you carefully look after your finances. You deserve the flexibility to sense-check if a legal issue exists and the best approach to tackle it. Our YouGov polling found 80% of early stage businesses (50% of those turning over millions each year) say they would like to avoid the cost of engaging legal work too early - getting sound legal guidance as a first-step before committing.
