Main Areas Of Practice
Blake Morgan provides the full spectrum of company law, corporate governance and company secretarial services.
Company Incorporations and Structure
Blake Morgan does not believe one size fits all, so we create bespoke companies with articles of association that are tailored to the specific needs of the business. Our highly experienced corporate solicitors take the time to understand a client's business so they can advise on the appropriate company structure and articles of association that fit the commercial needs of the business.
Blake Morgan can provide a full range of company secretarial services from company formations to registered office address. We can also be appointed to act as company secretary. In particular, our Company Secretarial team can deal with annual filings, updates to the statutory registers and recording changes to directors and shareholders, therefore reducing the administrative burden on our company clients.
Corporate Governance and Company Law
Business operates in an ever-changing environment. There can be changes in the law, new investment, unexpected growth or changes to stakeholders. Blake Morgan supports clients through these changes, advising on updates to the articles of association, introducing shareholders' agreements or employee share schemes and general company law compliance.
