Article Category - Commercial Law Advice 20 March 2019

The first quarter of 2019 has been a busy one for the business law team at Kenny Spring. In the past few months, we have been out and about talking to business owners about our exciting free service – the legal health check.

The legal health check involves us sitting down with a business owner and discussing the legal issues faced by their business. We ask a number of questions to check whether each part of the business is “healthy”, much like a check-up with your GP.

After the meeting, we provide a comprehensive report highlighting any areas of risk within the business and providing advice on how to mitigate those risks. We also answer any specific questions that the business owner raised at the meeting.

The legal health check is unique in that:

  • It is proactive instead of reactive
  • It is obligation-free
  • We offer to travel to the business owner
  • And, most importantly, it’s free!

All of the business owners that we have met with have received a real benefit from the legal health check. We have been able to help employers to clear up some important issues such as:

  • Confirming which Award applies to their employees
  • Reviewing when their next lease option needs to be exercised
  • Discussing how to conduct a risk assessment

As well as the typical issues that are faced by most businesses, there are also particular issues faced by particular types of businesses. For example, we have been helping food businesses with their food safety compliance and have been helping hotels to tighten up their booking terms and conditions. We have also been advising construction businesses on whether their employees need high-risk work licences and have been assisting accountants with their legal compliance.

It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, a free legal health check is a great chance to pause, review and discuss where your business is now and what you need to know to support your growth over the next 12 months. To book your free legal health check, contact us on 1800 650 656! We’re here to help!
