Limited Companies and Limited Partnerships are the main vehicles for business in the United Kingdom.
Much of Company Law is now contained in the largest Act of Parliament ever, the Companies Act 2006, and the Limited Partnerships Act 2001. Sadly their complexity means that even the smallest traders need frequent advice to carry on business legally through these business forms.
We have specialised as solicitors in advising limited companies, public and private, for many years. The privilege of limited liability protection depends on compliance and legality on the part of the directors and shareholders of companies.
We draft shareholder agreements, investment arrangements, reconstructions, prepare share schemes, share re-purchase and reduction schemes and all types of arrangements under company law. Often these are used as a means of resolving problems in the company concerned.
