We are commercially aware and know the importance of getting transactions completed in a timely and cost efficient manner. We don’t just advise clients on legal aspects, we share our commercial experience with them. We have good working relationships with accountants, corporate finance experts and business advisers.
We assist clients on all aspects of company law and comply with various formalities under the Companies Act 2006 and we prepare all the necessary documents.
We are also experienced in drafting cross-option agreements for shareholders and partners which provide a clear and sensible succession for all businesses in the event a shareholder or partner dies or contracts a critical illness in conjunction with clients’ life and critical illness policies.
We are there when the relationship between owners of a business or company breaks down. We advise on ‘exit strategies’ and the legal options available to the difficult questions of what happens to the website, twitter account, telephone numbers and premises.
We are always upfront and transparent about our fees, and offer fixed or capped-fee estimates whenever possible. We pride ourselves on providing a service that is effective and offers value for money. Our company law specialists have a wealth of experience which enables us to give legal advice in a practical content
