How We Help You
You are a small business needing straight talking, affordable, practical advice. Nine times out of ten you have questions and just need answers, you don’t categorise the questions in the legal, accounting, business box – the question hits you between the eyes in the middle of the night and you need answers. You want someone who will look at what you need to do and make sure your business is protected and you are not building in nasty surprises with what you are planning to do.
That’s what we do to help business owners like you. Not just the legal stuff, we tackle the practical stuff you need to know when running a business.
We provide pro active consulting services which are scaleable depending on the size of your business and turnover. You can access help via fixed cost once off project help. Want to pay monthly? We do that too.
Increased Profit and Stability
Our Action Programme helps both new and seasoned business leaders to make better decisions and run their businesses more profitably. If you think compliance/legal process/law has nothing to do with profit, try on a few fines or tribunals for size and see the level of costs and disruption your business suffers as a result of loss of reputation.
Growing your business without processes in place or operational management controls? You will feel the problems as you grow or need to get investment.
That’s the stuff we excel at helping with. So you can get on with the business areas you love the most. If you are considering, attracting investment, franchising, licensing or selling your business we can help, by making the business roadworthy from your investors, prospects or buyers perspective.
What sort of Consultants work at The LH Group?
All of our current consultants have a minimum of 18 years practical commercial experience and qualifications at MA level or above. All legal department heads are former lawyers (barristers, solicitors, legal lecturers and legal executives). We also have accountants and IT specialists who have opted to move into a more streamlined business model. Our experts are professionals with a tried and tested background in their field, long term experience of resolving real life business problems is essential to work with us. You have told us that the only thing that matters is you get a solution to the problem, quickly and efficiently and that means combining expertise with practical know how.
Do you ever work with solicitors’ firms or other professionals to provide services?
Yes we do, in lots of different ways and this is an increasing growth area for our business. We provide support to solicitors’, accountants, Data Protection Officers and other consultancy firms, expert content for their newsletters, provide legal articles for the press and online resources and have provided CPD training to law firms and other professionals. Several solicitors’ firms use our services for their outsourced Business and IT legal work too. We write their precedents for new and emerging technology that they use with their clients. We don’t compete with these firms, we work with them.
Why ‘ Law Hound/The LH Group’ when you do so much more than law?
When we started the business over 10 years ago we offered just legal document drafting services online and our business grew as our client base did. The name and brand was well known and loved and it makes sense to keep it. We also have various outposts online which are of the ‘ does what is says on the tin’ variety but all roads lead back to our Law Hound/The LH Group brand which is known for a lot more than law. It’s like we all know Apple don’t sell fruit.
Areas of Law
Specialist Business Law
Our specialist legal areas are Commercial Law (terms, IP, contracts), HR and Employment Law and Data Protection (including GDPR) and IT Law- we see these areas at the heart of most businesses wanting to sell services or products in 2019 and beyond.
We provide sound and practical options for your business from a position of many years’ experience.
That means we understand the relationship between the ‘must have’ in terms of managing risk and the plans for growth you have set in motion. All we do and suggest has its roots in sound business practice so each process we suggest fits your business.
Lowering costs of legal services
We offer our services via phone and the internet to save you costs, time and of course we work when you do. You are not waiting for an appointment with us or wrestling alone with heart stopping business problems over the weekend when a crisis hits you on a Friday evening.
What about insurance?
We carry worldwide professional indemnity insurance for our HR services, business consultancy and GDPR and Data Protection work. When you buy from us our terms of business make it very clear what you are buying and how insurance covers the service you have purchased.
