Modern companies are highly regulated. The latest Companies Act is in 47 parts, with 1300 Sections. But that is just one piece of the complex legislation that governs companies and those who own or manage them.
What we do
We bring together lawyers from a range of disciplines:
- Company lawyers set up, buy, sell and reorganise companies. They also advise on directors' duties and liabilities and shareholders' rights
- Commercial lawyers prepare relevant agreements, like shareholders' agreements
- Employment lawyers understand the sensitivities of employment issues, especially directors' service contracts
- Dispute resolution lawyers resolve boardroom or shareholder disputes
- Specialists handle corporate recovery and insolvency
Our clients are companies of all sizes, and individual directors and shareholders.
