We provide an integrated blend of legal, consulting and safety solutions to meet the needs of modern businesses.

Outset is a progressive business services group with a strong reputation for delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions to complex business challenges and adding real value. 

We believe most things can be done better. We are agile, we relish change and we seek out innovation.

If the answer is 'that’s how it’s always done'we’re going to challenge the thinking. 


We bend over backwards to be flexible. We’ll work with you, not around us. 

Our agility gives us the flexibility to stretch our support for you further. 


People are our business, and we empower ours to help yours.

We look for value in people, not their place in the hierarchy. We embrace diversity, and recognise talent comes in any form. When things are holding you back, we’ll help you move forward. Your people are our business.

We’ll focus on understanding the outcome you're looking for, and what value looks like to you. 

We deal in outcomes, not problems; value, not cost. 


Advice that's to the point.

We don't beat around the bush. Whether it's legal, business consultancy, HR or safety advice, you can rest assured it will be practical, proportionate and of course useful, with a rounded view of the pressures and considerations facing our clients. Our advice adds real value - not just a list of options.

Essential legal, HR, safety and compliance support – all for a fixed fee.
