Solicitors and Businesses

THERE are two professions every business needs: an accountant and a lawyer.

The reasons for hiring an accountant are fairly obvious but a good lawyer can also provide vital assistance in almost every aspect of your business.

Many of the areas where legal advice is particularly important are detailed on this website – such as what happens when illness prevents you running your business, planning for redundancies, accidents at work and the importance of contracts.

Free review of your business’s legal needs

Many small businesses do not consult a solicitor until they have a serious problem, for fear of the costs.

For this reason we offer a free initial interview where at an early stage we can help you to anticipate potential pitfalls and avoid future problems. There is no obligation to use our services.

Bring added value

A solicitor can also add value to a new or existing business in many ways. Their advice now may save you both money and problems in the future – from basic legal contracts to providing broader, strategic business advice.

Local advantages

A local solicitor will be able to relate to what you are trying to achieve in the local community — a community that they are part of, and are familiar with the services, resources and opportunities available to you.

Understanding your business

At Thomas Dunton you will find someone who understands what kind of business you want, listens to your needs and works to achieve those goals.

We always have your best interests in mind and do not just say “You can’t do that” but aim instead to say “Let’s look at it this way”.

Size doesn’t matter

If you have your own business, whether you work on your own or have a number of employees, why not take advantage of the free legal health check we offer under the Law Society’s “Lawyers for your Business” scheme.

Can we save you time and money ?

If you have your own business, whether you work on your own or employ a number of staff, we can help you protect and advance your business with personal and creative, cost-effective help to minimise risks, whilst looking at practicalities as well as the law.

Clear advice from our team of experts will leave you free to concentrate on running your business. Thomas Dunton can offer a wealth of experience in all areas of business and will be delighted to advise you.

Free advice service for small businesses

At Thomas Dunton we recognise that many small firms do not consult a solicitor until they have a serious problem for fear of running up legal bills. By the time they do make contact, the remedy may be far more expensive than preventative measures.

Using a solicitor at an early stage will help you to identify potential pitfalls and avoid future problems.

As members of  The Law Society’s “Lawyers for your Business” scheme, we offer a free half hour consultation where we can discuss your business, see if further help is needed and what the likely cost may be. You are under no obligation to take the matter further if you do not wish to do so.

We have been serving business clients in all areas of Kent and the South East for nearly 40 years including Bromley, Chislehurst, Orpington, Petts Wood, West Wickham and Hayes, Bexley, Dartford, Swanley, Biggin Hill, Westerham and Sevenoaks.

  • Dear Lisa, Maria and Tessa,

    Thank you all for your amazing support throughout last year. It really was a hideous experience, but every time I got to the point I couldn’t breathe and I spoke to one of you, I felt instantly strong again. You really are a fabulous team.

    When Margaret left, I was really worried, but Maria you picked up the baton and ran with it brilliantly. Then when Maria you obviously had to put your own family first, Tessa picked up the baton and just kept running for me. Lisa you made me giggle and reassured me whenever I was about to cry or hide in a cupboard, often picking up the phone to check I was ok – so very kind. Crackerjack will now forever remind me of you!

    I will recommend you to any of my friends who decide they need to take this brave step. You are simply the best. I hope you all enjoy your acorns, and remind you of how much you’ve helped people like me get out of unhappy situations. As they say, from acorns mighty oaks grow.

    Many thanks to you all,

    I kind of miss you!!
