Director appointment & duties
A company relies on two bodies of people – its shareholders and its board of directors. Directors will manage the day-to-day affairs of the business having been appointed by shareholders. Regardless of whether you are running the company and holding all the shares yourself or you plan to appoint directors, it is important that you understand the legal duty directors have to the business. Our team of experts can advise on the appointments of directors, their duties and, in the event of any director dispute, how to resolve or remove a director.
As your business begins to trade with others its important to be clear on the agreed terms on which the business will trade. Our team of experts can assist with drafting standard terms and conditions as well as other commercial contracts including:
- Supply & distribution agreements
- Website terms, conditions & policies
- Ecommerce agreements
