Advice on corporate governance / memorandum / articles of association
A focus on a company’s financial performance is not alone sufficient. A company that employs best management practices will prevent delays in corporate decisions, avoid weakening employee morale and maintain investor confidence. Thus, corporate governance is crucial to the running of a business.
A company is ruled by two important documents known as the memorandum of association and articles of association. These documents highlight a company’s objectives and control how they are achieved and monitored.
For example, if one of our client’s is interested in acquiring a company, our team will interpret a company’s articles of association and advise on how the relationship and responsibilities between the directors and its shareholders are to be governed.
If a client has recently started up their own company, we can adjust the company’s articles of association to ensure any potential corporate disputes between its directors and shareholders are headed off before they arise. Given our exposure to a diverse client base we have extensive experience in advising on articles of association to ensure that our client’s company not only meets its business needs but that constitution is in line with any recent changes in company law. Saracens has the experience and dedication to advise all enterprises on various corporate governance issues including company secretarial duties as well as a director’s fiduciary duties. We are also able to provide general corporate advice to assist clients with the day to day running of their companies and compliance with Companies Act 2006.
