Join Royds Withy King for the next Connect Harwell Workshop taking place at the Satellite Applications Catapult, Harwell Campus, which includes a networking lunch.

Place your growing business on a solid foundation by better understanding the common legal pitfalls you may encounter and how you can overcome these to achieve success.

During the workshop Taking Your Business to the Next Level – the legal considerations associated with business growth we will explore a number of key areas that will have a real impact on your business, whether you might be thinking about seed funding, venture capital or simply continuing to focus on organic growth.

Use our interactive workshop to build on the work you have already done in establishing and strengthening the framework of your business.

We will look at:

  • Your business structure, shareholders’ agreements and funding rounds
  • How to engage, retain and incentivise the best people
  • Recruiting from outside of Europe – sponsorship under the immigration system
  • Dealing with commercial property issues as your business expands
  • Preparing for a successful exit.

The workshop will provide the opportunity to discuss the business challenges you face and to share ideas on how to overcome these with the group, using our experienced legal team as a sounding board for any questions that you might have.

Our Harwell Campus team are also available following the workshop to discuss any issues you are thinking about in more detail. Do please indicate when you register if you would like to arrange a one to one appointment with one of the team.

The workshop will provide a variety of scenarios for you to consider for your organisation, whilst also giving you the opportunity to knowledge-share with colleagues attending the session too.

Innovation is a core value of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise strategy. Leading the way for the greater good.
