We can advise and assist in the drafting of commercial contracts and documents such as shareholders’ agreements, directors’ service contracts, terms of business, retention of title clauses, articles of association for companies and general contracts.
Commercial Contracts and Terms and Conditions
We draft and also advise upon commercial contracts and company documents.
It is an unfortunate fact that disputes can arise between business partners, directors and shareholders because there are no clear, concise and comprehensible documents setting out respective roles, duties and obligations of each. We endeavour to minimise this risk by providing you with the documents you need to assist the commencement of your business and business relationship, with the least fuss.
We can assist with the following commercial contracts and company documents, including:
- Memorandum and Articles of Association
- Shareholders’ Agreement
- Director’s Service Contracts
- Employment Contracts
- Terms of Business
- Retention of Title Clauses
- Asset Sale Agreements
- Partnership Agreements
- Joint Venture Agreements
- Share Sale Agreements
We produce clear and comprehensive documents which set out fully the relationship of the parties to a contract and which will limit the scope of any disagreements and litigation thereon.
Company Law and Administration
We can also advise and assist you in relation to the administration/record keeping for your company.
There is no longer a requirement for a small company to have a Company Secretary and often decisions are made without properly recording them or without the necessary meetings being held. We can guide you on the procedure for making decisions, holding meetings, recording decisions and preparing and filing necessary forms and notices.
Buying and Selling Businesses or Companies
Together with our Commercial Conveyancing Department we can advise you on the sale or purchase of a business as a going concern or the sale or purchase of the assets of a business only, or the sale of a Company.
We are particularly able to assist in the purchase of a business and assets from a Liquidator, Administrator or Receiver.
