AEL lawyers advise public and private companies on a wide range of company law issues. The expertise of AEL lawyers can support you from initial assistance in selecting the most appropriate form of legal entity and legal structure for your business activities, to incorporation and day-to-day management.
By providing pragmatic advice customised to individual business needs, AEL lawyers support businesses to manage their risk and achieve their goals. AEL lawyers will provide ongoing support for issues such as corporate governance, directors’ rights and duties, dividends and returns of capital, shareholder relations and board matters. Advice is also supplied to listed companies on their continuing legal obligations.
Some AEL law firms provide a dedicated company secretarial service to ensure that all your business’ legal obligations are met. This service can be tailored to the needs of your company so as to provide a comprehensive service from the company’s formation to its end. This can include keeping and updating a company’s statutory books, preparing and sending annual returns or drafting minutes, forms and resolutions. AEL law firms can work with your directors or existing company secretarial team, or provide an experienced alternative to an in-house department.
