Company & Partnership Structure

Our Commercial & Company solicitors advise upon and undertake the setting up of limited companies or limited partnerships, restructuring and winding up.

How we can help

Our Commercial & Company lawyers advise and assist in the setting up of limited companies or limited partnerships including drafting the relevant articles of association, shareholder agreements, partnership agreements and other necessary documentation.

We advise upon business restructure and joint venture agreements. In respect of business restructure, it must be kept in mind that if a business is struggling then the Directors’ obligation is to act in the best interest of the creditors and not of the shareholders. It may be necessary to consider any of the following: rearranging the assets or liabilities of the business, discontinuing a line of business, significantly changing the size and scope of the business’ operations, making extensive employee cutbacks, or managing a business transition.

Our Commercial & Company lawyers will advise on the most effective solutions and will work closely with our Employment lawyers to ensure that you receive appropriate advice to reduce the risk of any employment related claims following any such restructure.

Our Commercial & Company lawyers also work closely with our Litigation & Disputes lawyers where appropriate.
