Company structure and corporate law


Choosing the most suitable business type and company structure is a crucial decision for any business – it can have significant legal implications and affects on your finances and tax liability.

Whether you are operating your business as a sole-trader, partnership, joint-venture, franchise or company, you should consider the benefits of forming a company.

In this section we outline some of the major topics relevant to businesses, such as:

  • Company formation
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Mergers

We also look at problems that can face directors if the business isn't as successful as hoped, such as liability and setting up future ventures, management buy-outs and more general issues. Company structure can impact on a wide range of different laws.
