Here to ensure your business succeeds
Whilst starting or growing a business can be both exciting and rewarding, ensuring you have the right legal structure, are attractive to investors and have a strong set of contracts and trading terms can make the difference between success and failure, as well as save you a great deal of stress, cost and hard work at a later stage.
Our services ensure you have a strong foundation on which to build, and we will continue to advise and support you as your business grows and evolves. We have considerable experience in a number of different sectors including financial services, professional services, leisure, retail and property making us well placed to offer you comprehensive advice on the many different aspects of your business.
As your business grows and develops, you are likely to encounter a number of challenges and issues along the way. Our advice and services enable you to prepare for and navigate these events successfully, in order to achieve your desired outcome or objective. This could take the form of helping you prepare and plan for the future, or deal with a sudden and unexpected event.
We regularly advise on how a company should be structured and what agreements should be put in place to regulate the relationship between shareholder and directors, and we can advise shareholders on a variety of issues. As companies grow and develop the original shareholders’ aspirations may change and we often advise shareholders on how to enforce their rights.
We also have considerable experience of advising individuals who have established a profitable business and wish to maximise the value on a sale or merger of such a business. In particular we can assist with:
- Corporate mergers, acquisitions and disposals
- Partnerships, reorganisations and demergers
- Joint ventures
- Shareholder agreements and articles of association
- Directors’ duties and corporate governance
- Private investment
