Business owners offered free legal advice…
BUSINESS owners have a chance to access free legal advice at an event being hosted by Staffordshire solicitors Bowcock & Pursaill.
The seminar called Don’t Settle For It – Law For Business Owners, is set to take place at the Potters’ Club in Stoke on Wednesday February 4 and runs from 8.30am until 10am.
The firm, which has offices in Leek, Festival Park and Uttoxeter, decided to host the event following a number of changes in the law recently which directly affect business owners, in particular employee rights to request flexible working and shared parental leave.
Tim Wolley, litigation specialist at Bowcock & Pursaill, and Sara Brumwell, also a litigation expert with the firm, will be speaking at the seminar, together with leading intellectual property attorney Robert Sales of Swindell & Pearson.
Tim said: “As a business owner, particularly a small business owner, keeping up to date with all the latest rules and regulations affecting your company can prove a headache when your time is precious and focussed on running your business successfully.
“However, the effect on a small business when cash flow comes to a halt due to outstanding debts for example, or a claim being made against the company in court can be devastating, so it’s essential to have a grasp of what your rights and responsibilities are – both as a business and as an employer.
“This seminar aims to cover a lot of ground in a short session and clear up many of the grey areas created by recent legislation, and everyone who comes along will walk away with some useful advice for their business to ensure they’re compliant, solvent and successful in 2015.”
The seminar will tackle topics including how to make or defend a claim in the small claims court, how to protect your brand and intellectual property, advice on cash flow and how to chase debts, as well as clearing up any confusion regarding flexible working rights.
Any business owner interested in coming along to the seminar is asked to call and reserve their place by contacting Tim Wolley on 01782 200000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
