Services for Business

At Hatten Wyatt Solicitors, we work closely with business owners and directors to understand their objectives for the business and their long-term personal goals.  We hope that you will consider us to be part of your team, a sounding board for strategic planning and a trusted advisor when problems arise.

Whatever stage your business is at in its lifecycle, then our legal experts are here to help.  We are experienced at working with businesses of all sizes across a wide range of sectors – from agriculture to advanced engineering, and from healthcare to high-tech.

For startups

Our experienced corporate and commercial lawyers can help you choose the best legal structure for your business and undertake all the formalities in setting it up. We’ll help you secure your first commercial property, employ your first staff and draft your terms and conditions of business.

Growing businesses

As you grow, we will advise you how to protect your interests regarding funding arrangements, joint ventures, mergers or acquisitions.  We will advise you on commercial exporting and distribution arrangements and ensure that your supply chain arrangements are water-tight.

As your workforce grows, we will ensure you comply with employment laws and can help with immigration or advise on the admission of new partners or shareholders.  If a business dispute arises with a customer, a supplier, an employee or a competitor – we will be there to keep your business on track.

Succession planning

You may receive an approach to buy your business, or you may be heading towards retirement and wondering if a management buy-out is possible.  Either way, you need to ensure that your business is in top shape to achieve the optimal value.   The earlier you start to groom your business for exit, and plan for the tax implications, the better a position you will be in.

Our advice goes beyond pure legal compliance – we also provide business consultancy to help you achieve your goals.

Advising businesses throughout Kent and beyond

We have offices in Maidstone, Gravesend, Chatham and Tenterden.  

We can also offer meetings at your place of business or via Skype or a conference call where needed.

Funding

We usually offer an initial appointment to discuss your requirements at a fixed cost.  Depending on the support that you require, we also offer flexible payment terms, including monthly billing to help you budget.
