What is Company Law and why do I need a Company Lawyer?

Running a business is pretty tough without having to understand the minefield that can be Company Law. You’ve got to remember that a limited company is its own entity, governed by rules set out in the Companies Act 2006 and its own Articles of Association and Memorandum. Steven is a company law solicitor who advises company officers, shareholders and directors, with any company law matter.

Because a company is its own legal entity and one which is regulated by law and whose information is publicly available online at Companies House it is imperative that things are done properly.

Company Law relates to anything which a limited company needs to do with its own shares, its constitution or as it relates to Companies House.  Our expert company law solicitor Leicester can help your business with:

  • Company Formation
  • Directors and Shareholders Meetings / Resolutions
  • Change of Company Name
  • Issuing new shares or new share classes
  • Company Secretarial work
  • Share Option Agreements – such as growth shares/hurdle shares/freezer shares
  • Family Investment Company set up
  • A Company’s purchase of its own shares
  • Reorganisation of share capital
  • Employee Share Schemes (e.g. EMI Schemes)
  • Increases or reduction of share capital
  • Directors Service Contracts / Dismissing Directors
  • New Articles of Association
  • Conversion to LTD from Sole Trader, Partnership or LLP
  • Charity Law

As a company law solicitor, I will help you to ensure that your company is compliant and that whatever process we’re dealing with – from issue new classes of shares to partners, to giving employees share options or a restructuring your share capital – we will do it expertly, on time and on price.

So get in touch today to discuss how Steven Mather Solicitor can help with your company law requirements.

How much will it all cost?

Steven works with fixed fees, and for each job a bespoke proposal is given.

Company Law varies completely in cost, and could be something as little as a few hundred pounds, but typically work in this category would be £1,000-3,000 plus VAT.

However, I’d much rather you give me a call on 0116 3667900 and have a chat about your requirements and how Steven Mather might help.

Incidentally, we rarely price match other solicitors – simply because the lower priced ones don’t provide the same level of service (or any!). However, we will usually be cheaper than ‘proper’ commercial firms (eg those with glass fronted offices, ones in Legal 500, ones that have a ‘coffee menu’… you know the ones).

Next Steps for your Company Law issue?

Whether you are putting in place some new shares,looking at a shareholder agreement or you just don’t know what you need – get in touch.

Steven’s typical client is probably like you – a business owner who knows their business well but needs a hand with legal stuff. I’m here to be your trusted advisor.
