Guiding you through company formation

Starting up or managing your own company gives you plenty to think about, not only about your products or services but how you want to set yourself up as a business.

Ormrods can take the strain by guiding you through all the legal aspects of setting up your own company.

We will help you through the maze of different company documentation and advise on the optimum ways of running your firm in legal and financial terms.  We are also experts in helping clients buy, sell, or take over the running of existing companies.

We cover all the key issues in company formation, such as directors’ employment, shareholder agreements, and the memorandum and articles of association.

You can rest assured that we can deal with all aspects of company law, including:

  • Purchase and sale of private limited companies
  • Due diligence
  • Agency agreements
  • Assisting in formulating franchise arrangements and structures
  • Private company structures
  • Employment matters
  • Structuring private companies to manage liability and risk
  • Buying and selling businesses
  • Securing property interests.

We take great pride in attending closely to all the legal details on your behalf.  For example, we are often asked to protect the interests of minority shareholders. The value of preparing detailed shareholders’ agreements is often only realised when shareholders are in dispute.

Our aim is to ensure that shareholders' interests are properly protected and that directors and trustees clearly understand their responsibilities. 

So if you need some advice on company formation or other commercial matters, call Geoff Ormrod on 01253 861032.
