Whatever the size of your business, we can guide you through the law and help protect your company or investment.
Many small businesses set themselves up as limited companies, but don’t always have the time or experience to understand the legal implications of being directors, like having shares or getting people to invest in them. Whether you are new to this, or fully conversant with the law, whether it’s a new or existing company, whatever the size of the businesses or investment in a business, we can guide you through the law and help protect your company or investment.

A well thought out, carefully drafted shareholders agreement will provide protection should your circumstances change
Why should I set up Shareholder Agreements?
Whether you are setting up or already running your own business, there may be times when you had a shareholders agreement. You might want to sell shares to raise money for your business, or you may want to give shares to staff or members of your family. Whatever your reasons, a well thought out, carefully drafted shareholders agreement will provide protection should things change.
You might want to reward a loyal member of staff with shares in your business, to help motivate them and keep them loyal. However, if they died, or fell on hard times and wanted to sell their shares, you could find that an unwelcome third party has an interest in your business that you are powerless to prevent.
Call us for experienced advice on how to plan for the best but prepare for the worst.
There are many aspects to the types of services that Directors and shareholders might need, and at Kleyman & Co. we can provide advice and support at all stages.
The advice that is sought from us most often, but if you need help with something that is not covered her, please let us know. In the unlikely event that we cannot help you we will be happy to put you in touch with someone who can.
Don’t get caught out. Ensure that your company is not breaking the law.
When things go wrong in the running of a company it is often not deliberate.
Directors don’t necessarily sit out and ignore the rules of running a company, but simply don’t know the correct process for calling a General Meeting, or are too busy trying to run the business to face all the consequences (to themselves personally and the company generally) of acting beyond the limits of their Articles of Association.
Let us guide you through the legislation
This is why we offer a bespoke advice service for Directors to advise and guide them through the legislation and enable them to concentrate on the more important matters. Let us do what we do best, so you can do what you do best.
Mergers and Acquisitions
It isn’t just big businesses that grow by buying up the competition. Many smaller businesses amalgamate so that they can share and reduce overheads or look to be bought out when owners want to retire.
Whether you’re looking to grow by buying another business, shrink by selling off a part or all of your existing business, or maintain the status quo by allowing key people to buy in or acquire options, we can help.
We have wide experience of helping with a wide range of businesses, including catering companies, building supplies merchants and those in the education system, as well as technology and property.
Call us today for a no fee, no obligation informal chat about the process and what we can do to help.
