Do I need a lawyer when forming a company?

There are countless websites offering you the opportunity to start a new company in minutes. There are definitely times when this is all that someone needs, but more often than not; a comprehensive, tailored service is needed in order to ensure everything is properly taken care of. Working with a lawyer also means that you can be sure that the correct structure is in place to cater for the businesses ongoing needs. Our team of expert Commercial Lawyers can help to create your company for you with a constitution that meets your needs. We can also advise you on the terms for the relationship between the members of the company, so that suitable agreements are in place that will mitigate against prolonged and expensive disputes in the future.

Our team of experienced lawyers will guide you through the entire process. We’ll complete the necessary paperwork with you and submit your application to Companies House. We’ll also make sure everything is taken care of for the incorporation of your new company.

With a wealth of experience behind us, our company formation specialists can advise and help on each of the following:

  • Initial incorporation (i.e., registration at Companies House)
  • Tailor made Articles of Association suited to your individual needs. This is the key document setting out the company’s ‘constitution’ and governs the relationship between its officers and its members, and between the members themselves, and the scope of their powers and interests in the profits of the company
  • Members’ rights, responsibilities and liabilities
  • Directors’ duties and liabilities
  • Partnership agreements for unincorporated companies

What do I need to consider before setting up a company?
