Business Law - A Guide for Entrepreneurs
Edited by: Peter Bohm
There are over 3.5 million small and medium enterprises in the UK which employ up to 50 people, including limited companies and partnerships. With a strong economy and local and government initiatives promoting enterprise (in both the social and not-for-profit sectors), many businesses are in a position of growth. The UK legal and regulatory environment relating to small businesses is complex and as a business grows, the owner or manager needs to consider the implications in areas such as employment law, health and safety, commercial property, and finance. Technology and modern trading practices also raise a wide range of legal issues, including online agreements, security, and the protection of intellectual property. Written clearly in language that the non-lawyer will understand, Business Law - A Guide for Entrepreneurs offers entrepreneurs and owner/managers an in-depth understanding of many of the relevant legal and regulatory issues surrounding small and medium enterprises.
