“The best way to get advice when starting a new business is to see a local solicitor who can help to protect the business and avoid costly pitfalls. They can provide advice on a range of legal issues from data protection and product liability, to advising what you can say in promotional material, protecting your ideas and applying for licenses.”
Also commenting, Julie Wilson and Amy Livingstone – the Scottish entrepreneurs behind teething firm, Cheeky Chompers, stated:
“We realised that right from the start we would require legal advice to protect our intellectual property. We also knew we would need to create templates for contracts with manufacturers and distributors from around the world.
“Our top tip for anyone looking to start a new business would be that it’s best to leave legal matters to the experts! Don’t spend your time getting caught up in anything you can outsource – focus on the business and let the professionals deal with legal matters.”
