Our corporate team provides a broad range of advice to clients on areas including Companies Act compliance and UK corporate governance requirements. We often deliver training to directors and in-house legal teams on their duties and responsibilities and advise on corporate governance procedures and policies.

There are many practical and legal considerations when choosing a particular corporate or partnership structure including the type of funding to be provided, how the business is managed or controlled and how any potential exit may be achieved. We can assess the various options and help you to make the right decision.

Our team also advises on the relationships between shareholders, including drafting articles of association and shareholders’ agreements for private companies, and support clients when dealing with director and/or shareholder disputes.

We take the time to understand what matters to our clients, and have significant expertise drafting and negotiating both UK and cross-border joint venture arrangements which deliver their commercial objectives.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Directors’ duties and responsibilities (including Companies Act compliance);
  • Company secretarial support;
  • Joint ventures;
  • Partnership structures; and
  • Articles of association and shareholders’ agreements.
