Location, Location, Location

“Location, Location, Location” is the mantra for house-hunters, but new business owners are being urged to heed the message or face tough times ahead.

That’s the warning from Huddersfield’s multi award-winning law firm Ridley & Hall, after location was highlighted in two reports as one of the main reasons for start up firms failing to take off.

Costs are always crucial, particularly for young businesses, but bosses are being urged not to just look for low-rent sites when they start trading but to carefully pick their location – pinpointing where their customers are, ease of accessibility and proximity of competitors – and be prepared to pay for that prime plot.

The advice comes as more and more people are being tempted to pursue their dream of starting their own business, and the time is right with the British Chambers of Commerce upgrading its economic growth forecast for 2014 from 2.8% to 3.1%.

Now Ridley & Hall solicitors, based in Market Street, are offering new bosses a free pep-talk to prepare their business ventures.

It is the latest initiative from the firm’s new Commercial Property department.  The free-30 minute consultations will give advice to business owners who are starting up or branching out.

Commercial property solicitor, Julie Devenport said: “Our consultations mean we can come up with ideas and advice on how commercial property deals can work for you, and to help you avoid the pitfalls. And the best thing is that the advice is free, so businesses have nothing to lose by talking to us.”

Ridley & Hall specialises in commercial property matters including landlord and tenant work, mortgages, and sales and purchases of freeholds and leaseholds.

The law firm earlier this year announced a major investment in expanding its commercial property department with its own dedicated team.

As part of that move, they have recruited the vastly experienced and well-known commercial lawyer John Royle.

Ridley & Hall has recently won the title of Law Firm of the Year and senior partner Nigel Priestley was named Legal Champion of the year.

To book a free business consultation, contact Julie Devenport on 01484 538421 or call into Ridley & Hall’s offices on Market Street, Huddersfield.

Ridley & Hall’s Pep-talk for Businesses

Bosses are being offered a free pep-talk to pep up their businesses in the latest new initiative from Huddersfield’s multi-award-winning law firm Ridley & Hall.

The new Commercial Property department is offering the free consultations to give business leaders crucial legal advice as the economic recovery starts to take shape.

It comes as the government reports growth of 1.6% in 2013, with latest estimates that the economy is set to grow by 2.4% in 2014.

Head of Commercial Property Julie Devenport said: “This is the time when people need help to expand their businesses and make sure that they are not left behind as the economy picks up. Our free consultations mean we can come up with ideas and advice on how commercial property deals can work for you. And the best thing is that the advice is free, so businesses have nothing to lose by talking to us.”

Ridley & Hall on Market Street, Huddersfield, specialises in commercial property matters including landlord and tenant work, sales and purchases of freehold/leasehold and mortgages.

The free consultations will last 30 minutes and will cover all areas of commercial property matters – but they are only available for one month.

Ridley & Hall earlier this year announced a major investment in setting up its new Commercial Property department with its own dedicated team. As part of that move, they have recruited the vastly experienced John Royle as a solicitor. John has been a lawyer for 40 years and is well known among Huddersfield businesses for his exceptional commercial work.

Ridley & Hall has within the last twelve months won the title of Law Firm of the Year and senior partner Nigel Priestley was named Legal Champion of the Year.

Huddersfield’s multi-award-winning law firm Ridley & Hall has pulled off another major coup by recruiting the vastly experienced John Royle to its Commercial department.

John arrives at the Market Street legal firm as a senior solicitor with 40 years’ legal experience.

He will join forces with Associate Solicitor Julie Devenport, who has been running Ridley & Hall’s Commercial arm for the last 10 years.

A former president and secretary of the Huddersfield Law Society, he is well known among Huddersfield businesses for his exceptional commercial property work.

John Royle said, “This is an exciting time for Ridley & Hall and I am pleased to be bringing my experience and expertise to such a vibrant firm. Business people want solicitors they can trust and rely on and I am delighted to be joining such a respected team.”

Julie Devenport said, “It is great for us to be able to bring John on board with his vast experience and contacts. The timing is perfect because there is a huge buzz at the moment with the commercial property market in the region and we are working behind the scenes on some new and innovative ideas for the Commercial Property department.”

Ridley & Hall specialises in commercial property matters including Landlord and Tenant work, sales and purchases of freehold / leasehold and mortgages. Julie Devenport also deals with Commercial Law matters involving Shareholdings and Commercial Assets, Sales and Purchases of businesses, Company structures and partnerships and work with Clubs and Charities.
