Using company solicitors in Edinburgh


Edinburgh has one of the largest concentrations of businesses in the UK, and is also the financial hub of Scotland. As such the city has a diverse range of legal services that your business can use. Company solicitors in Edinburgh can help, support and advise you about every legal aspect of your business. And as business law in Scotland can be slightly different to the laws in the rest of the UK, the services of company solicitors in Edinburgh are invaluable to the local business community.

All company solicitors in Edinburgh must be members of the Law Society of Scotland. This is a requirement of the Solicitors (Scotland) Act 1980. You should also check that any company solicitors you want to use in Edinburgh have a full and valid practising licence, as this is a legal requirement.

Company solicitors in Edinburgh can handle all the legal requirements of your business. Some of the services company solicitors can offer your business include advice on: 

  • Employment law
  • Commercial property purchases or leases
  • Tax law
  • Copyright and intellectual property law
  • Data protection regulations

You should have a productive relationship with any solicitors you use, but if you do find that you are in dispute you can use the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission. However, you ought to contact your solicitor first, as they will attempt to resolve your issues themselves.

With the new Companies Act now in force, it is even more important to ensure your business is operating within all the current regulations and laws. Company solicitors in Edinburgh can ensure you are running your enterprise in accordance with all the current laws that impact on your business. Don’t underestimate the value of your solicitor, as they can become an essential part of your management team.
