Our skilled negotiators assist our clients in the sale and purchase of both companies and businesses. We advise clients on the advantages and disadvantages of shares as opposed to assets, taking into account any due diligence issues that may arise when investigating the company in question.
We provide a swift and simple private company formation service and bespoke shareholder agreements, tailored to clients’ needs. Most private investment companies will have a shareholder agreement in place in addition to the company’s Articles of Association. This document is of primary importance as it details matters such as how the company is controlled, the dividend policy and how decisions are made. It will also typically govern the exit strategy for a shareholder and how shares are to be valued at any particular point in time.
Our company law department is also well placed to draft and advise on director and senior employee service contracts.
Franchise investments tend to be long-term commitments so it is important to get good advice before entering into any agreements. Whether you are offering a franchise or thinking of taking one on, our specialist lawyers can ensure your franchise is governed by an appropriate agreement, which is compliant with UK law.
We are also skilled in drafting and negotiating joint venture and partnership agreements and in providing advice as to which of the various options on offer is most appropriate for a particular client’s needs.
