Corporate news – Issue one

Read our first issue of Corporate News as a newly merged firm Moore Barlow, which is an incredibly exciting opportunity for both our corporate and commercial law team to spread its roots further with offices in Woking and Guilford as well as London, Richmond, Southampton and Lymington.

This month a selection of our experts and specialists cover a range of important topics, including David Bright, on how to make the best of a management buy-out; Iwan Thomas on the role of venture-capital funds in the company life cycle; Polly Cross on why the ‘Persons with Significant Control’ of a company are so important, and Kirsty Bowyer on the possible pitfalls of removing a director from office. And if your business is facing financial difficulty, Tim Matthews explains how the government’s new Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act could help your business.

Alongside these articles, we have included our top deal transactions of 2020 (see page 5) including completions that occurred during lockdown, despite coronavirus, and the completion of our very own merger! 

Our legal experts are staying on top of the latest coronavirus government guidance, to provide you with advice, practical tips and webinars which can be found on our COVID-19 recovery resources hub. We will be updating this page with the latest guidance and support on an ongoing basis.

If you would like to discuss any of the topics we have covered, please get in touch with us.
