To build a successful business you need solid foundations. As well as a great idea, a sound business plan and the right people on board, you need to be certain that you’re complying with the rules and protecting your interests. A mistake early on could have devastating consequences for your business in the future.
For example, a poorly worded employment contract could mean an ex-employee setting up in direct competition to you. They might even steal your clients. And that could lead to your business becoming less profitable or even failing altogether.
So it’s absolutely key to make sure your legal framework is robust from the start.
We offer all members of the Business Catalyst Club special legal packages and reduced rates for debt recovery, property, employment and dispute resolution.
Whether you’re already in business or just starting out, we’ll make sure you have all the right policies and contracts in place so you know your business is on a sound legal footing. We’ll also check that your website is compliant with the latest rules. Because, no matter how amazing it looks, you can get into trouble if your terms and conditions, data protection and privacy policies aren’t right. If you haven’t started your business yet, we can sort out your company formation for you.
What’s more, we’re property experts so we can advise you on your business premises and acquiring or selling property as your needs change. And looking ahead, we’ll make sure that you’re prepared for the future. If you have a question or an unexpected legal issue, you can talk it through with us and we’ll give you our best advice.
With clear upfront costs and great value packages, all this means that you can stop worrying about the law and focus on what you do best – running your business.
PM Law Limited – by your side when you’re starting out; supporting you as you grow.

To Be Honest Mastermind
Contact: Peter Cruikshanks
M: 07790 615120
‘It’s lonely at the top’ is a common comment about being the boss of your own business.
You are expected to know all the answers, yet it can be difficult to get help from the people who work for you. So where can you get help that you can trust, is in confidence and gives you the motivation to follow through with it?
Imagine a group of smart people you meet regularly to tackle challenges and problems together. You lean on each other, give advice, share connections and do business with each other when appropriate. It’s very much peer-to-peer mentoring and you will most likely see a marked change in yourself and your business.
These words don’t properly describe the power of a mastermind group. Please listen to the mastermind members speak about the impact on them and their businesses.
Curious? Come and try out a mastermind meeting. We have an online open mastermind meeting every 4 weeks plus regular in-person events in the region. Contact Peter to register for either format of meeting.
If you want more focus, accountability and success in your life and business then check out the To Be Honest Mastermind.
