'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'

No matter what the scale of the issue is, you might have any number of legal concerns within your business that you’d like to be put to rest in some way, or you might be facing something a little more serious and need some help.
To help ease the stress a little, we’ve put together this guide on how you can find and pursue legal support for your business.
The British government encourages budding entrepreneurs and benefits greatly from seeing a wide range of small businesses thrive within the economy. To help you make sure you form and operate your business correctly and cover yourself legally, the government keeps a wide range of business-relevant information available online through the Gov.UK website.
The support available ranges from step-by-step guides on how to register your business, to making sure you know exactly what you need to do to follow health and safety regulations. But, if you need more personal legal guidance, there are helplines and email support available for any questions or concerns you might have about legal best practise and meeting regulations.
Other sources of legal advice and support you could make use of include the FSB Resource Hub. Our Resource Hub contains a wide range of guides, news pieces and documents that cover all aspects of running a business and legal advice to help you feel more at ease.
If you’d prefer something a little more personal, the government is also again a helpful resource. In 2011, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills set up a business “Growth Hub” initiative, intended to facilitate and increase growth and employment in local areas.
These Growth Hubs are partnerships between local authorities and businesses, and are commonly known as local enterprise partnerships. 38 local enterprise partnerships exist across England, and your nearest one can be found here.
Your local partnership will always be available to contact and will also organise events which you can attend in order to learn a little more about the operation of a business and get any legal questions you might have answered.
Similarly, many law firms will often organise free open clinics that you can attend and get some legal advice at. Whether it’s a simple matter that can be solved that day, or something a little more serious that might require hiring additional legal support, law firms will be able to provide you with the guidance you need.
Whatever legal issues you may have, big or small, FSB is there to help you solve them.
FSB’s Legal Protection Scheme is available with our FSB Business Essentials package, and we are sure it can provide you with what you need to deal with any legal issues.
