You may have just started out in business or have been a director for many years. Whatever your experience, you should be aware of your (ever expanding) duties as a director, and those of your fellow directors.
You may also be a shareholder or employee (or both) and, if so, will have additional rights and duties going beyond those purely connected with your office as a director.
How we can help
We can advise you on the duties and rights of Directors, Employees and Shareholders and will provide tailored Service Agreements to protect your business. These can include post-termination measures to protect your business in areas including restraint of trade, confidentiality, intellectual property and commercial strategy.
Having the right paperwork in place is vital because unfortunately, it isn't always rosy at the top. Disputes in the boardroom can have serious detrimental effects on your organisation.
Where working relationships have broken down, we can help you act decisively with minimal disruption to your business. Faced with a choice of overlapping options – including formal disciplinary action, garden leave, a negotiated exit or even injunctive relief – we work with colleagues in our Company & Commercial and Legal Disputes teams to help you get the right result for your business.
Whatever your query, our specialist lawyers are here to guide you through each stage of the process, providing straightforward, practical, cost-effective advice.
