Our team regularly advises directors, shareholders and companies on all aspects of company law, including advice in relation to directors’ duties, shareholder meetings, company constitutional matters, restructurings and reorganisations and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
We are experienced in advising state bodies, state companies and the public sector on best compliance with the particular law and guidelines relating to that sector. Companies are increasingly aware of the importance of corporate social responsibility and the impact of their activities on stakeholders. Our lawyers are well placed to advise you on CSR strategy and initiatives.
Company directors are responsible for managing the affairs of a company, identifying risk and ensuring that there is a strategy and a system in place to deal with those risks.
Company directors are also responsible for ensuring their companies are in compliance with legal requirements in all areas of business, not just company law. Directors can face personal liability if these standards are not met. This is not just the case for directors of public companies, but applies to all company directors.
Our dedicated Business Compliance team can assist you on every aspect of your business. The team comprises experienced lawyers from specialist areas across the firm who can advise on issues such as corporate governance, company law, employment law, property, health and safety, pensions, environmental, regulatory issues, competition law and data protection. Early stage companies will benefit from the services offered by our Start-Up team.
