Business Legislation

Businesses are required to comply with a wide range of business laws.

Complying with every rule and regulation might seem intimidating if you're about to start up a new business. For obvious reasons, some types of business and sectors are more heavily regulated than others. Business laws and regulations exist to provide a framework in which commerce can thrive while protecting the interests of all involved.

  • Business Law - Specific to the offer, intellectual property rights, data protection, and much more.
  • Employment Law - The rules you must follow when recruiting, interviewing or dismissing employees.
  • Health, Safety & Environmental Law -  safeguarding of the environment, employees, customers or visitors.
