The Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre is dedicated to providing advice on a range of different legal issues. Our Company Law Team can advise on the formation of companies, company disputes, and being a sole trader.
As our service is free there are financial criteria to be met before we can provide advice:
- If you are a company we can only assist you if your turnover is less than £100,000 per year.
- If you are a social enterprise we can only assist you if the profit making turnover is less than £250,000 per year.
If for any reason we can’t help you, we will always try and signpost you to an organisation who can.
Miss R and Mr T were planning on setting up a small online retail company together. They wanted advice on how to register their company and how to create a shareholders agreement. We advised the clients on what company structure would be most suitable for them and how they could register their business. We also assisted with helping the client’s understand the types of clauses they should consider for the shareholder’s agreement. Both Miss R and Mr T said they felt the advice was thorough and that it helped them to understand all of the options available to them.
