The law firm for small businesses

Are you a small business or start-up that doesn’t know where to start with the legal stuff? Do you know you need to do something to protect your business, but not sure what? Do you sign every contract that comes in without external help, and hope for the best?

At Protect Your Empire, our focus is on scaling your business quickly, with the lowest possible risk. 

We understand that lawyers can seem scary, and that it can seem easier to stick your head in the sand when it comes to the difficult things in business.

We work primarily with small businesses, start-ups and online businesses to make sure you are legally protected.

Do you have to deal with refund requests from clients?

Do you get complaints because your services aren’t what the client thought they were getting?

Do you have a sneaking feeling at the back of your mind that you’re not doing everything you need to be doing? Could you be breaking the law?

Click below to arrange a FREE 15-minute consultation with Babs to discuss your business, and how you can make sure it is fully protected



We understand that life as an entrepreneur is busy and stressful. We also understand that you need experts on hand to help as and when you need it. A traditional law firm that’s never heard of a collaboration agreement, or that takes 2 weeks to get back to you, isn’t going to cut it

We work with you to understand and get involved with your business from the outset. We can only give you the best advice, personalised to your business, if we understand what it looks like from the inside out

So we always kick off by having a 15-minute consultation with our clients. This allows us to ask all the questions we need to make sure we understand your biggest concerns

After that, we will always quote and charge you for any legal work up front. No need to worry that we do loads of work for you and then hit you with a massive invoice at the end. You’re in control

And we don’t just go silent after the work is completed, either. We’re available after we have finished your legal work to explain things to you, and make any changes that are required

Our philosophy is to make contracts work for you. They should protect you and your business, but they shouldn’t scare away your customers or cause you to have to deal with hours of negotiations. That’s not practical for your business growth.

Founder of Impact School

Babs’ Protect Your Empire Programme literally changed the game for my entire business. Before I
joined this programme, I honestly don’t know how I survived for so long in business. I was forgetting
to do so many highly important legal things, which left me at such huge risk. If someone had sued
me, I would have been done. Whereas now, I have every single thing in place. I have all of my
agreements with my clients nailed, everything to do with anything I do online is protected legally.
Not only that, for all of my contractors, we have perfect agreements which means that, if for
example, someone who I’m hiring to do some work for my company then decides to go ahead and
steal a bunch of my clients, that is not happening… thanks to everything that Babs has helped me
with. So it’s just been amazing to be able to go through this programme and to have so much
protection now. My empire truly is protected.

I highly recommend Babs and her services to any business owner who wants their legal work taken
care of meticulously and quickly. She really goes above and beyond. Delighted I decided to work with

I used Barbaras services to create a contract for my business and not only she delivered it before the
deadline, but she was incredibly helpful and understood exactly what I needed. You should definitely
hire her services.

Alex Neilan

Founder of The Sport Dietitian

The best money I’ve invested in my business by far. Unbelievable service, still very underpriced in my
opinion considering it means my business is now fully protected. Barbara responds to any of my
concerns immediately and over delivered in my opinion. I have decided to continue to work with her
on an ongoing basis as every quarter she has found a way to reduce my mistakes and easily cover the
cost of the investment to work with her. Its a no brainer. Not having legal protecting is the world we
live in is like drink driving through a police station, its wreck-less. I cant believe the low costs of this
legal service. Dive in, youll never regret it.

I recently worked with Babs and Protect Your Empire on the contracts for my marketing and software business. The work was delivered quickly and of a high quality. Babs was easy to work with and understood my business well. I would definitely recommend Protect Your Empire for getting your contracts sorted for your software or tech business. I’m now using her for more work as our business grows!
