Tips to Avoid Legal Problems in Your Small Business.
Thursday, 06 June 2019 08:51
We all know that law firms make lots of money from litigation and one of the most profitable areas is business law. This ranges from everything from libel suits (defaming a competitor) to mishandling customer data. Fortunately most of this expensive problems can be mitigated by a combination of common sense and correct insurance cover.
Here at Hold Everything on Regent Street we have heard many stories over the years from companies who have fallen foul of legal guidelines, be it HMRC or for data protection failure. Even simple things like GDPR compliance need taking seriously to avoid costly solicitor’s letters.
If you are setting up a new business it is well worthing appointing a business solicitor to be on call for any troubles that might arise, prevention is an excellent strategy in this area. We are always here to discuss business problems with our clients and if we don’t know the answer ourselves we can certainly put you in the right direction.

Need space for a meeting?
By having a virtual office, it is more than likely that your business is running from an out of London location.
Your location base appears as London, perhaps even your telephone lines appear as an inner London location this can often become a problem when client’s want to meet with you face to face.
The Regent Street office offers a prestigious boardroom within ‘your’ London office. This way you are sure never to miss an important meeting while holding up the foundation of your Central London presence.
Located less than a 2 minute walk from Oxford Circus station which is accessable via three different underground lines, our office is easily accessible and has lift facilities for disabled access.
So what we offer…
A 10 capacity boardroom that is self-contained with blinds for extra confidentiality comes complete with WIFI/PROJECTOR/FLIPCHART (on site scanner & printer facilities are also available).
Tea, coffee, water & other selected refreshments are available
Our meeting room is available from 9am-5pm Monday – Friday (other times are available at special request)
Make the benefits of having your virtual office work for you, without the cost and time consumption of renting an actual office.

Putting up the lights?
How are your Christmas plans coming along? Have you put up your lights yet? The man in this picture isn’t actually putting up his but taking them down. And it was in the last couple of weeks.
Someone doesn’t like them! This is a market town in Norfolk about 20 miles from the city of Norwich. Read HERE for the full article.
I’m not entirely sure what to say on this one really. Being in the centre of London, our lights go up every year with tens of thousands of people coming along to get into the spirit of Christmas. We’re on Regent Street just off Oxford Street so it is a different world in some respects.
However I really think that the principles are the same . We live in a multi- faceted, multicultural society so not everyone celebrates Christmas or wants to. However does this mean that we should stop those who do?
Did Mark Bunning – the business owner asked to remove the lights go out of his way to annoy his fellow businesses? I very much doubt it. Did those who complain about a local business owner taking his own time (at his own cost) to put up lights and cheer up his town, think for one minute that he did it because he has the community at heart, or was it just easier to criticise?
I was chatting to a couple of my clients about this and one of them sadly lost her mum over Christmas. What were her thoughts? Here’s what she said:
“ When my mum passed away and we went to the solicitors, to sort out probate, it was a time of joy and happiness for most families. Of course I didn’t want to be involved but at the time, honestly, if there had been naked dancers in the windows or real reindeer flying around I wouldn’t have noticed. I was grieving . I wouldn’t begrudge anyone Christmas cheer and never did”.
So think about this over the festive season. What can you do to make life easier for your business neighbours. How can you HELP them and do you really know your clients.
And as for these lights…. Why would anyone knock a business person trying to do good. Whether it was right or wrong – at least the thought and effort were there.
