Below are the answers to some common company law FAQs.

What are the different types of business legal structures?

When you initially set up your business you need to select a legal structure that will help you achieve your commercial ambitions. The most common legal structures in the UK are:

Our Company Law Solicitors can take you through the advantages and disadvantages of each structure so you can choose the right one for your venture.

What is corporate governance?

Corporate governance refers to the rules, processes, and procedures which govern how a company is directed and run. Good corporate governance ensures that an organisation has suitable decision-making processes and controls in place to balance and safeguard the best interests of all stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, suppliers, customers, and the community.

In an age where a company’s reputation can be destroyed through trial by social media, good corporate governance is essential to protect your brand. From matters relating to shareholder engagement through to environment and sustainability policies, our Company Law Solicitors can provide specialist advice on all corporate governance-related matters. 

What are the advantages of a joint venture?

Joint ventures are a common way for two or more companies to join together to undertake significant business activities or projects.

Entering into a joint venture can help your organisation gain the specialist resources, equipment, and market knowledge required to execute a particular growth strategy or innovative development.
