At Hart Brown we understand that it is difficult to keep up to date with company and commercial legislation and how it will affect your business. Our commercial and corporate solicitors regularly provide guidance on new legislation advising businesses on the processes and procedures from an operational, management and equitable perspective.
As part of that process we have particular expertise in advising on good governance of businesses. In unlisted enterprises this is not about the relationship between the board and external shareholders but more about establishing a framework of processes and attitudes that add value to the business, help build its reputation and ensure its long term continuity and success.
We seek to provide each business with an effective governance framework which defines roles, responsibilities and an agreed distribution of power between the shareholders, the board, management and stakeholders. The intention is to provide a framework for owners, partners, founders and investors as they plan the development of their business over the corporate life cycle.
We regularly provide advice on:
- Articles of Association
- Board constitution
- Classes of shares and rights
- Directors’ duties and appointment
- Directors’ conflicts of interest
- Minority interests
- Resolutions and Meetings
- Share purchase out of profits or capital (Share Buy Back)
- Share option schemes
