Memorandum & Articles of Association

Memorandum & Articles of Association

Whether you currently own a business or are going through the process of starting your own venture, one of the most important items a Limited company requires is the Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association.

These outline the framework of which the business will operate, the expectations and responsibilities involved. An effective Memorandum of Association will shape and develop a business throughout its lifetime and facilitate growth, it is also key in the avoidance of Partner disputes, attracting investors and in understanding the general running of the company.

Many businesses, particularly those in the early stages of their start up, make use of the Statutory Articles but unfortunately find that later down the line these articles are not adequate or sustainable for the business, and require amendments.

As a corporate team experienced in working with a variety of businesses we can ensure that you have the security of a tailored Memorandum and Articles of Association, appropriate for the governance of your company, outlining the Partners fiduciary duties and providing guidance on the relationship between the company, clients and employees.

If the existing Memorandum & Articles fail to meet your business needs, or you are starting a new business we can assist with amending the terms of the articles or drafting articles specific to your new company, with careful assessment and investigation of your requirements that will support your business now and in the future.
