Our corporate and commercial lawyers have experience in helping businesses in various matters across a number of different companies.

Alongside our wider commercial law services, we can assist with dispute resolution, where your company is considering legal action to sort out a dispute.

Shareholders Agreement Solicitors

Does your business have a shareholders agreement in place? Our shareholder agreement lawyer can help with drafting or updating your shareholder agreement, as well as answering any questions.

Sometimes referred to as a stockholder’s agreement, a shareholders agreement describes the operation of the company and sets out in writing the obligations and rights of the shareholders. It also covers the sale of the shares in the company.

A shareholders agreement is specific to your company and supersedes the standard articles of association.

A shareholders agreement is not legally compulsory, but if there are two or more shareholders in the business, it’s strongly recommended. You won’t need to file the shareholders agreement at Companies House.

Partnership Agreement Solicitors

The importance of a Business Partnership Agreement cannot be overstated. If you are in business with one or more people and do not have a formal written Deed of Partnership, you will have what is known as a “Partnership at Will”.

That means that legally, you will each have an equal share in the business partnership whether or not you have each contributed the same amount financially.

This might be to your detriment if you are the Senior or Managing Partner as you will be jointly liable for the debts of the business but not entitled to a share of the profits reflective of your capital input.

A formal agreement will evidence the profit shares and responsibilities of each Partner and in the event of a disagreement between you, it will be clear as to what your legal position is with respect to the other Partners in the Business

If you are buying a Business, it is an essential element of the process and will provide reassurance going forward.

Company Formations

Do you need guidance and advice on company formation? We have all the details on incorporation and whether it could be right for your business.

If you are ready to start your own business, one of the first things you’ll need to get organised is the formation of your company. This is a larger job than it sounds as you’ll have to consider the different types of structure available. Each of these has its own pros and cons which may alter the liability and profitability.

The primary structures for company formation are:

  • Sole trader – a single person running their own business on a self-employed basis
  • Partnership – two or more people who manage the business together and split the profits
  • Limited Company – a legal structure which removes personal liability from the owner/s of the business
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) – a hybrid structure which combines a partnership and limited company, removing personal liability but treating income as personal.

The size of your business and its specific needs will help to determine which structure would be the most beneficial.
