Whether you are a new start up or a mature company we can assist you with the appointment and retirement of directors, transfer of shares, amendments of articles and reconstruction of your company.

What is Corporate Law?

A company goes through many phases in its life and changes may be required.

We can also assist with the sale of the company, or the company selling its own assets or even acquiring another company or a company’s assets.

Where a company needs finance it may be available from a bank or from the shareholders by way of a bonus issue, rights issue or from directors through directors’ loan accounts or from 3rd parties such as “private equity investors”.

You may be a group of individuals who are part of a company who wish to buy the company’s businesses or part of it – a management buyout. This may be achieved using your own cash, borrowed funds or bank funding and money from private equity.

Whatever the circumstances of your case and whichever sector your business operates in, you can rest assured that our experienced team of company law solicitors will do all they can to achieve a positive conclusion.

What is Commercial Law?

While Corporate Law deals with the statutory side of forming and regulating a company the wide spectrum of “Commercial Law” deals with its relations with other entities or people in the world of commerce and business. A body of commercial law both statutory and case law has evolved over the years to provide the principles known as “Commercial Law”.

The company, once formed, will need to trade and it will do so using a series of commercial contracts which govern the relationship between the company and its customers or strategic partners which will need trading terms and conditions. It may go into joint ventures with other companies or it may need to use another company’s ideas which will be controlled through licensing arrangements. It may distribute another company’s products or services and it may operate under another company’s name or banner through a franchise. The possibilities are ever increasing.
