Corporate Law is one of the main advisory specialisations of the firm. Proper advice is essential both when setting up a company and also in relation to ongoing matters. For example it is in the interest of the shareholders to have share classes in place to be able to distinguish between the voting rights of the shareholders, while also having proper measures at board level to allow the directors of the Company to run the business properly.
