COVID-19: Important Information for Clients – Please Read
Running a company involves navigating your way through the Companies Act 2006, the longest Act of Parliament ever introduced in British legal history with over 1,300 sections and 16 schedules spread across nearly 700 pages, and a multitude of other legislation which applies to limited companies and their directors.
In particular, the Companies Act 2006 imposes duties on all those who act as directors of limited companies which complement the historic common law and equitable duties imposed on directors.
Breaching these duties, or beaching any other legislation relating to directors or their companies, can have serious consequences for directors with punishments including fines and criminal prosecutions.

The starting point for providing comprehensive, practical and pro-active advice to directors is a dedicated team of Corporate lawyers who understand the relevant legislation inside out, not just in theory, but in practice too as a result of years of experience advising companies, from start-ups all the way through to listed companies, and their directors on compliance issues.
The Corporate Team is then complemented by experts from across the firm in practice areas such as employment, dispute resolution, regulatory & compliance and insolvency & restructuring to ensure companies and their directors get comprehensive advice covering many different pieces of legislation and the implications of how these impact on the situation in hand.
Our aim is to make sure the advice we deliver is comprehensive, practical, proactive and easy to understand whilst guiding you through a complex regulatory landscape and minimising the risk t you and your business as far as possible.
