Business Structures And Business Relationships

Our Commercial team of Solicitors can provide a readymade shelf company or a bespoke company which is tailored to your every need.

There are several ways to structure your business and the options require careful consideration. These include sole traders, partnerships, limited liability partnerships (LLP), limited companies, and public limited companies. Our blog on the different types of structures available is available on our ‘Blog’ section.

We will work with you and with your accountants and tax advisers to find the right structure for you, including future-proofing your business to deal with likelihood of selling your business or share, passing your business or share down to your children, the need to raise finance and external investment.

We can also advise on documents to structure your relationship with your other stakeholders, including employee engagement schemes, including EMI and EIS scheme, shareholder and cross option agreements and business LPAs.
