Our legal team of specialist corporate solicitors have outstanding knowledge of all types of business structure, and so we are well-placed to offer you the best possible guidance on all aspects of structuring or restructuring your organisation. Whether you’re forming a new company, drawing up articles of association or shareholder agreements, or considering a joint venture, make us your first port of call for advice.

We offer expertise regularly to entrepreneurs, Limited Liability Partnerships, professionals and partnerships, and with our all-round, hands-on approach to corporate structuring, you can be confident that our knowledgeable team of specialists will help you to find the best resolution to meet your business’s needs.

Our corporate solicitors will advise you about the best medium for you to trade through, guide you efficiently through the conversion process between one entity and another, help you to deal with any potential disputes, or assist you with undertaking mergers among other related processes. We will also help you to spot any possible issues in advance and put effective procedures in place to mitigate any risks before they get out of hand.

Why does my business need a corporate structuring review?

All businesses, whatever industry they operate within, are able to benefit from a review of their corporate structure. Among other things, this type of review can limit legal liabilities and ensure greater tax efficiency – two aspects that are essential to all kinds of organisation.

In order to be effective, corporate planning has to be carried out in anticipation of potential future events instead of as a reaction to events that are currently taking place. Our team of experienced corporate solicitors can assist you in determining the most appropriate corporate structure to suit your company based on its specific needs and goals. Some considerations we can discuss with you include:

  • Small business corporate status
  • Tax structure
  • Cash distribution
  • Succession planning
  • Trust funds
  • Advising on Limited Liability Partnership and Unlimited Partnership Agreements
  • Helping with company formation
  • Drawing up shareholder agreements and joint venture agreements including cooperation agreements, collaboration agreements and research and development agreement
  • Advising on franchise agreements

Our experienced and knowledgeable team of corporate legal professionals can help you to identify the most suitable business structure for you, carrying out any necessary amendments, drafting any essential agreements and helping with company formation from the outset as necessary.

WHY CARTER BOND
Partner Led

Unlike many law firms when we say partner or barrister led, we mean partner or barrister led. When clients work with us, they get constant access to the lead on their instruction. Yes, we have a team of solicitors and juniors for some of the groundwork and necessary research required by our clients, but this is when it makes financial sense to the client for us to do this. We provide constant contact at no extra cost as part of our service as most of our lawyers have their own business, so they know first-hand how important having a proactive, responsible and trusted partner on their side can be. And also how to work to a financial budget, and the way that legal decisions impact the wider organisation, which often requires balancing risks and competing interests.

Proactive Contact

Many ask us ‘what’s different about you?’ and we like to reply, ‘because we go the extra mile’. We see our work as building and maintaining good business relationships rather than just earning fees. How we do this is by keeping in constant contact with our clients and intermediaries. From pre to post instruction we ensure that our clients are informed of all legal issues that may impact their business and therefore lives. That is why we provide daily or weekly updates to ALL of our clients whether there is anything to tell them or not (we don’t charge for this we just see it as part of our service). We like our clients to rest peacefully knowing that when we are instructed, and we say ‘we will take it from here’ they know we mean it.

City quality, outer City fees

The world is changing, and many individuals are realising that lifestyle is as vital to them as is income. We are the lucky ones who can hand pick lawyers who can provide the best quality advice but at outer city costs. Our offices are in North West London which may not be the most salubrious in the market but at the same time this allows us to charge our clients for what they pay for, our advice NOT our office space.

ALL our lawyers have previously worked in large city-based law firms and continue to practise and offer  the same high level service  they provided to clients in the City but without the pressure and demands often dictated by City law firm. This allows us to be competitive on our fees without compromising our service.

All in all, our clients win, which is the way we like it.

Our knowledge and resources are yours

All our clients benefit from the same high level of care and attention whether the instruction is big or small. At the outset of each matter, we discuss the entire process with our clients, including the costs, potential outcomes and issues associated. This is to ensure clients are fully aware, knowledgeable and are in control always. Supporting and ensuring we provide the highest level of services, we offer our constant contact process with the partner or barrister leading  your file, a document log in for matters which are for larger and more complicated instructions and on-going support post transaction should our clients require it. Our aim is not just to get the work done, but to make our clients’ lives easier as we do it, which is why we ensure that our clients have regular access to the resources they need from us.

Deal Advice: You’ve signed the Heads of Terms. What could go wrong?

It’s not uncommon for sellers to think that a sale is as good as complete once the heads of terms are signed. However, signing heads of terms (also known as letters of intent or memoranda of understanding) is only the first step in starting negotiations for a sale and purchase agreement (SPA).
