Ensuring your business is legally compliant to help manage risk

Commercial Law & Corporate Governance

As a Legal 500 ‘Tier 1’ corporate & commercial team, we appreciate that the running and governance of a company can be difficult and time-consuming, which is why we provide straightforward, comprehensive advice, written in plain English. We advise clients across the private, education and third sector on all areas of company law and corporate governance, to help shareholders and directors manage risk and act in the best interests of all stakeholders.

How we can help:

• advising on compliance with the Companies Act 2006;
• advising on directors’ duties and conflicts of interest;
• advising on shareholder consents and voting rights;
• advising on share capital matters including allotments;
• preparing for and running board and general meetings;
• drafting and advising on articles of association;
• drafting and advising on shareholders’ agreements; and
• reviewing statutory registers.
