Corporate Governance

We have a specialist team available to help you with all your legal services for Corporate Governance. 

Corporate governance covers the issues a company must follow in order to be compliant with statutory provisions.

With today’s ever increasing corporate governance requirements, it is more important than ever for company secretaries and directors to keep up to date with all the latest regulations and statutory provisions; an unenviable task with the number and frequency of changes. Our Corporate Lawyers can provide expert advice to in-house company secretarial teams and directors with their corporate governance.

Most notably we are asked to assist with the following on a regular basis:

  • Incorporations of limited companies and limited liability partnerships
  • Reconstitution or update of statutory registers
  • Assistance with preparing and filing statutory documents at Companies House (Confirmation Statements, directors changes etc)
  • Share allotments and share transfers
  • Adoption of new articles of association
  • Share subdivisions, consolidations and re-denominations
  • Share re-designations and implementing new classes of shares
  • Share buy-backs and restructures
  • Advice on constitutional matters such as board and shareholder meetings
  • Advice and assistance with Strike-off

We work with a variety of organisations including publicly quoted companies, private limited companies, membership organisations, property management companies and limited liability partnerships covering a vast array of industry types, in order to provide a comprehensive company secretarial service. We regularly assist international parent companies manage their UK subsidiaries’ corporate governance. We provide the advice required on either a permanent, project or ad hoc basis to suit our client’s requirements.
