Peter Millican Law has helped almost 1000 businesses get off the ground, by giving entrepreneurs insight into the legal requirements of running a business as part of PNE Enterprise’s eight week course for start-up companies.

Peter Millican of Peter Millican Law has been delivering the workshops for approximately 8 years, helping the people behind our region’s start-up businesses.  He advises on company structures, basic documentation including client and employment contracts, company handbooks and procedures, leasing of commercial properties, tax planning, protecting partners within a business and more.

Melissa Middleton, Programme Manager for PNE Enterprise, commented:

“Peter has helped so many North East businesses get started, from the smallest such as sandwich shops and takeaways to much bigger businesses including hotels, and manufacturers.  His presentations are engaging and entertaining, and we’re confident every person leaves much better informed.”

Some of the North East businesses that have benefitted from Peter’s help during their start-up phase have included Weekend Box which provides fortnightly weekend activities for children and parents, and Manhau Cha Bubble Tea which has expanded from a ‘mobile pop-up stall’ into an online delivery business.

Peter commented:
“It’s important that anyone setting up a business has an understanding of the legal requirements for running that business.  Sharing this information gives these entrepreneurs the best start.  They can give their new business the most appropriate structure and ensure the owners are protected, that contracts are legal, and, if they’re employing, that they understand their responsibilities as an employer.  At the start, when you’re unlikely to have a budget for professional advice, it’s important to be able to attend courses like the ones provided by PNE, and through these have access to appropriate and vitally important advice.”

Peter Millican | Seminar: 1:30 – Seminar Arena 4

Peter Millican Law Team | Exhibiting at Stand B15 – Gold North Suite on Level 1.

Words from Peter Millican

In putting together the Seminar I have tried to give practical examples, and, hopefully, much food for thought when looking at whether your business, or your Client’s businesses, are at risk for lack of legal documentation. I will explore key areas of risk, and how pitfalls can be avoided or at the very least, minimised. I would invite you to think about any specific questions you may have as the Seminar will be fairly relaxed. I always find the more audience participation we get, with businesses sharing issues, the better it is for all attendees. All I ask is that you come with an open mind. Legal seminars do not have to be sleep-inducing!

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow and if you have a specific question in advance of the Seminar (or after it) we are also exhibiting at Stand B15 – Gold North Suite on Level 1.

I hope you enjoy the Seminar and I hope you enjoy the day overall. See you tomorrow”
