We advise companies from all over the world on launching into the UK and we know that many others in the market entry community are doing the same. So, to mark the start of 2018 we decided to collect these thoughts, comments and observations into a little book on how to enjoy and make the most of setting up a business in the UK, especially London.
Below is a tiny taster, which we hope you will enjoy and find useful, and if you’d like to see the full book (which we obviously recommend!) please email us and we can either send you a copy in the post or a digital copy by email.[email protected]
