Company formations and business start-ups

We can help you with all aspects of company formation, from the initial planning stages to the final registration. The process of company formation typically involves the following steps:

  • Agreement and implementation of the shareholder structure.
  • Registration with the appropriate government authorities.
  • Fulfilment of legal requirements to make the business operational.

Our corporate law solicitors in Hull can provide help with all of these steps, ensuring that your company is formed correctly and is legally compliant. We can also help you with other matters such as.

  • Ensuring the correct legal structure for the business
  • Guidance on structuring your business and establishing the appropriate responsibilities and roles
  • Assessing investment agreements and funding options
  • Negotiating and drafting joint venture and shareholder agreements and corporate governance responsibilities going forwards.

Shareholders’ agreements

A shareholders' agreement is a written contract between the shareholders of a company that sets out the terms of their relationship. It can be used to address a wide range of issues, such as voting rights; transfer of shares; dispute resolution; and buy-sell agreements:

A shareholders' agreement can be a valuable tool for protecting the interests of all shareholders and ensuring that the company is managed in a fair and equitable way. This is an important document which provides an agreed set of procedures and structures for dealing with any issues that may arise between the shareholders in the future along with clarity as to each shareholder’s expectations of each other.

Our corporate law solicitors in Hull can advise companies on the creation of shareholders’ agreements, as well as reviewing and amending any existing shareholders’ agreements that are already in place.


A company reorganisation may be necessary in certain scenarios, such as where you have plans to simplify the general structure of a corporate group or wish to prepare a company or group of companies for sale.

We can support you with all of the procedures involved in company reorganisation, ensuring you have all the support and information you need to make an informed decision about the possible structures available and often working closely with your accountants to agree a step plan for any reorganisation and then helping to put it in place.

Joint Venture Agreements

Putting together a joint venture agreement is crucial  you intend to collaborate with another organisation.

This agreement is a fundamental document that sets out the terms that will govern the relationship between your business and the company with whom you intend to work alongside.

Our corporate law solicitors in Hull have substantial experience in handling joint venture agreements and will work with you to secure suitable terms that protect your commercial interests.

Mergers and Acquisitions

A merger or acquisition (M&A) is a transaction where one company takes control of another company. This can be done by merging the two companies together, or by one company acquiring the shares of the other company.

There are a wide range of considerations to make when completing a merger or acquisition and a number of steps to complete including:

  • agreeing heads of terms;
  • due diligence;
  • negotiation of the legal documentation.

Our corporate solicitors in Hull can guide you through the entire process, ensuring you remain on top of all of your duties and obligations and helping you make decisions in the best interests of your company and its shareholders.


Disposing of your business is the process of selling or divesting your ownership or control of a company.

Disposing of your business is not a decision that can be taken lightly, and we can provide advice on your options and the implications of a particular chosen route, as well as helping   to guide you through the process

Management buy-outs

Management buyouts (MBOs) are transactions in which the existing management team of a company, with the help of external investors, buys the company from its current owners. This gives the management team control of the company and allows them to take it in the direction they want.

Taking part or full ownership of a business for development purposes can be an excellent option. To start the buy-out process, the expertise of our corporate law solicitors in Hull will be essential.

We can prepare and review various relevant documents, including:

  • Heads of Terms
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Shareholders agreements
  • Articles of association
  • Sale and purchase agreements
  • Banking and security documentation

Venture Capital

Venture capital can provide companies with monetary investment, or technical and managerial expertise.

Whether you are a private investor, or business owner seeking investment, our Hull corporate solicitors can guide you through every stage of the investment process and build a strong platform for the present and future.

Banking and security Documentation

Businesses in the UK often need advice on banking facilities and documentation. This can include facility agreements, which set out the terms and conditions of a loan, and security documentation, which gives the lender a legal claim on the business's assets if the loan is not repaid.

It is important for businesses to get legal advice on banking facilities and documentation before entering into any agreements and signing any security documents. This will help to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions of the loan and the security documentation, and that you are protected in case of default.

We can provide advice and help you understand any banking and security documentation you are being asked to sign and explain the implications of it so you have a clear understanding of your duties and legal obligations, as well as any potential risks.

Employee Share Schemes

Implementing an employee share scheme can allow members of staff to have a stake in the company, offering a valuable way of incentivising employees, a clear succession plan and possibly a tax advantageous way of giving employees a stake in a company.

Implementing employee share schemes needs careful planning and a comprehensive understanding of the outcomes you may encounter and we have the experience to provide this for you.
