Boardroom law requires a special mix of corporate, contract, insolvency, litigation and employment law experience.
Being a director can be a tough job. There’s a business to run, investors to please and a board to answer to. Everyone is focussed on success but the definition of success can vary. Sometimes you have to consider bringing in a non executive director to align the various interests.
Sometimes, whether for performance or personal reasons, the time comes to part company with one of your fellow directors. This can be more difficult if that director is also a shareholder.
You get landed with a long list of statutory directors’ duties. If you get the finances wrong the company could face insolvency and you could be dealing with directors disqualification proceedings.
We have over thirty years experience of acting for directors from a company’s cradle to its grave and for companies who want to end their relationships with directors and/or shareholders.
In addition to expertise in the different areas of law that make up boardroom law, we add emotional intelligence and straight talking.
