Legal

Law and accounting often get painted with the same boring, antiquated brush. However, as with all things RBK, this is a legal service that’s anything but intimidating and old-school. Getting the numbers right is an integral step in the business process, however a facet that many business owners don’t give enough clout to is engaging the right legal advice to ensure all that hard work is protected.

Commercial and business law

From terms and conditions to ensuring client contracts are air tight, we’re across the A to Z of commercial law. Start ups need the basics covered from the get go, whilst established businesses may need a hand with complicated matters such as shareholder agreements. Be proactive with managing risk and the legalities you need to be across as a business owner.

Dispute resolution and litigation

Many business owners don’t seek out legal advice until they learn the hard way - which is usually when they find themselves in the middle of a dispute. Whether you need a hand with debt recovery, or find yourself in the middle of an insurance dispute, litigation of this nature can be incredibly stressful to go through. We take a stressful situation and handle the nitty gritty for you, alleviating that pressure and getting you out the other side unscathed.

Intellectual property

IP is often the most valuable part of a business. It’s a murky area of law, particularly in creative fields, that requires rock solid trademark, copyright protection, and licensing agreement advice. If someone ripped off your IP tomorrow, would you have a leg to stand on?

Insolvency and bankruptcy

Two words that a business owner never wants to hear. If you find yourself in an insolvent or bankrupt situation, the first port of call should be to have someone by your side to confront the issue in a strategic and measured way.

Debt recovery

As a business that started from home with two blokes on their laptops, we understand the importance of cashflow, and the detriment that a build-up of debtors can put a small business in. Recovering debt is often an awkward, confrontational process that most business owners don’t want any involvement with. That’s what we’re here for!

Employment law

Managing your team is one of the most difficult parts of owning a business. The process starts with a great employment contract and gives both you and your employee an excellent base to move forward with. Termination, unfair dismissal disputes or the breaking of a contract can be tricky areas to navigate and is also something we can help with.

Commercial leasing

Many business owners enter into a commercial lease with little understanding of their negotiation or tenant rights. Before signing on the dotted line, have us look over the contract to ensure you’re making the right move. If anything comes up during the lease, pick up the phone for advice on this front too.

Estate planning & wills

You’d be surprised (or perhaps not) about the amount of people who overlook estate planning and don’t have a formalised will. Particularly for those who own a business, or who have blended families and therefore a potentially complicated plan, getting this right is critical. Find comfort in knowing that your friends and family will be taken care of in the way you want, and that the right person is there to look after your affairs and distribute to beneficiaries as you intended. A daunting task just got much more approachable.
