Whether your business has only just opened or already reaches out across Hampshire, when the time comes to employ staff, it is important to make sure you keep on top of employment law. Under the Employment Rights Act 1996, you need to provide a written statement of employment terms to your employees within two months of the start of their employment. At Kingswell Berney Solicitors, we provide more than just legal services. Our knowledgeable Gosport employment solicitors use their deep commercial experience to partner with you and help you build the business you aim for.
For advice and assistance with preparing employment contracts, staff handbooks, consultancy agreements and all staff related documentation for your business, make an appointment with a renowned Hampshire employment lawyer at Kingswell Berney.
Our clients are often surprised to learn that partnership law has not changed much since 1890, when the Partnership Act became law. When a partnership begins, the law automatically imposes a set of rules governing the management of the partnership. However, it is always a good idea to draw up a specific agreement to fully represent the rights and obligations of each of the partners.
Key provisions that you need to think about for your partnership agreement include:
- How you wish to divide up profits and losses
- The duties and responsibilities of each of the partners
- How will the partnership be managed
- How should voting work
- What will happen if a partner wishes to retire…and a lot more besides
Getting the partnership agreement right from the outset can make the difference between a smooth operation and a series of disagreements. At Gosport partnership lawyers Kingswell Berney, we have the knowhow and experience to help your partnership flourish from the beginning.
For an experienced Hampshire solicitor that can give your partnership a headstart, make an appointment with Kingswell Berney.

It is very important that these agreements are correct as this governs the entire business relationship. We review (and write) Franchise Agreements.
