Other business services

All businesses require clever design, ongoing maintenance and renegotiations to shift with changing markets or changing needs. Our team of business solicitors offer tailored advice for everyone from budding entrepreneurs to worldly executives to ensure your business can keep up with your vision.

Smith Roddam Solicitors is here to help with each step, whether you’re in the planning stages with your business venture, you’re already established and need support with managing your business, you’re looking to grow or negotiate partnership and shareholder agreements. One of the vital foundations of a stable business set up is getting the formation process right and choosing a structure that will be the most effective. There are different registration, reporting requirements and corporate responsibilities that can be associated with different structures which our team can help you to understand. There are also different benefits and risks associated with choosing to run a company, partnership, limited liability partnership, joint venture or operating as a sole trader.

Depending on the nature of your industry, you may also have specific licencing requirements. Based in Bishop Auckland, Crook and Shildon, we understand the unique economic development areas and sectors of Durham. Our team have experience supporting business owners, directors and managers from a variety of sectors, including agriculture, health sciences, innovative technology, manufacturing, tourism, and energy, environment and engineering.
