David Hughes

Company Law

I qualified as a solicitor in 2004 and practiced as a corporate solicitor in a traditional commercial law firm until I set up Canopy Law in 2011. I now offer my business law expertise not via a traditional solicitors firm but through a niche business and employment law consultancy. I’m a bit like an outsourced legal counsel.

I know how difficult it can be to find great legal help at the right price for you. That’s why I only work using fixed fees that are agreed before you commit to the advice.

My overall objective is always to keep things simple and straightforward. I have advised sole traders who are just starting on the path to being a business owner and, in 2010, I advised the owners of the London Aquarium in their sale of the business to the owners of the London Eye.

My top tip is to plan ahead for your company sale. It’s never too early to start planning who you are going to sell your business to.

Running a business is great. My job is to help you understand the legal process with the minimum of hassle – so you can concentrate on doing what you do best.

"A good Shareholder Agreement is like a fence at the top of a cliff, which stops company owners from falling over the edge and into the hands of lawyers who wait in the ambulance parked beside the rocks below.
This book explains in easy to understand language what a Shareholder Agreement does, the common clauses it contains and when it is best to put one in place."
