Legal

High profile corporate governance scandals of recent years, together with shifting employment laws, have brought increased amounts of compliance legislation. Boards now have to devote more time and money ensuring that the business is operating within the law.

Many early stage companies that have not had the rigour of full time legal oversight in their early growth stages may already have hidden exposures. This could span issues relating to corporate compliance, asset protection (patents, trademarks, designs, copyright), and employee contracts.

For businesses planning change, these exposures have a habit of emerging just at the wrong time. A legal risk and opportunity assessment will enable a business to identify areas of potential exposure. In our experience, early stage businesses need to determine which risks they - and their investors - can tolerate, and which risks must be addressed.
