Creating the legal foundations to protect your growing business

Malcolm Haddow, Burtons Solicitors

Time lost dealing with compliance, complaints or litigation costs businesses thousands of pounds each year. 

In this presentation, I will explore what you need to do to make sure that your paperwork, website and terms and conditions are compliant with the law, so you can maximise your time spent running your business and not trying to deal with complaints or actions for non-compliance.

Malcolm is a solicitor with over 20 years experience in the law, having worked for national and local firms in litigation, company and commercial, insolvency and advising on the implementation of government contracts. 

He has worked with national and international firms on litigation, and also their paperwork to resolve problems, to stop them occurring again and minimise the impact of non-compliance and litigation on the running of their business.
