The Lease and Your Lawyer

The Lease and Your Lawyer

One of the main things to have when running your own business is to have professional advisors. These would include digital marketing consultants and someone to handle legal issues. Your lawyers would be on hand to handle any legal matters or even a crisis, should one develop. While most business owners have consulted solicitors when setting up a business, often they think there is no need to keep in contact because they expect it to be trouble free in the days ahead. This may not be the case.

Do you really understand all the implications in it for your business? If the lease is drafted by the landlord’s solicitor, it will be to his favour, not yours.
