About this Event


Legal requirements can seem daunting when you make that decision to start-up. This is true for many, but, the fact is to operate legally and to protect your business interests, they can’t be avoided.

The good news is, “the legals” are far easier to manage if you understand your obligations sooner rather than later.

If you take the time to understand the basics at the outset, it’s really not as scary as it seems and you can make informed decisions on what the right approach is for you and your business.

Led by legal specialists from Knights plc (a leading UK legal & professional services business), this free “bite-sized” 90 minute seminar, to be delivered via Zoom, will give you an overview of the legal rules that relate to directly contacting individuals and businesses in the UK for marketing or advertisement purposes (direct marketing).

We’ll cover:

• When the rules relating to direct marketing apply;

• The general rules which exist, and how to navigate them;

• What information you are legally required to provide to individuals when you contact them;

• The risks of getting direct marketing wrong and the common pitfalls;

• The codes and regulatory bodies that can provide (often free) additional guidance for your business.
