Corporate Governance & Corporate Structures Legal Advice


Generally speaking, corporate governance is the system put in place by a business to establish how it is directed and controlled.

Good corporate governance should seek to ensure that the business achieves long-term growth and stability for the owners and other interested parties, such as creditors, customers and the communities in which the business operates.

It is often thought that it is sufficient to simply put a framework of policies and procedures in place; however, good corporate governance also requires proper values and standards to be incorporated into all aspects of the business’s activities.

Our team of Corporate Lawyers work with a wide range of business types in all sectors, offering expert legal advice on the full range of corporate law matters including governance, structures, compliance, policies and more.

We were keen to complete an asset purchase of an online business within a three-week timescale, in a busy period leading up to the end of the year. Enquiries with other law firms were discouraging but Lanyon Bowdler took on the task and completed the purchase five days ahead of target! The contract documents and proposals were all professionally handled and promptly executed. Well done!
