Charles Russell Speechlys launches new product to support retail start-ups
The Retail team at Charles Russell Speechlys have launched a new product that is aimed to support start-up businesses across the sector: The Attention to Retail Toolkit.
In our experience, an essential aspect that often gets ignored during the early stages of building a retail business is the legal framework under which a business contracts with its third parties and customers. Agreements for manufacturing and services are made via email, confidential information is shared without being contractually protected and products are sold to customers on inappropriate, often unenforceable, terms.
Often, businesses will get away with this informal approach early on. However, we have put together this Toolkit comprising template commercial agreements and website policies to help start-ups reduce the risk of something going wrong further down the line.
In addition to the template agreements included in the toolkit, businesses will also be entitled to two hours of free legal advice made up however suits them.
For further information on how the toolkit can help your businesses, and to enquire about costs, contact Caroline Swain.
