Business Entity Type

The way businesses operate can differ in many ways – and for a variety of reasons. ​

To give your business the best possible start, in terms of both risk and opportunity, you need to establish an entity that's most appropriate for your purposes and circumstances right from the outset.  ​

Our corporate law teams advise a variety of business owners and managers, from sole traders looking for the easiest and most cost-effective way of running their business, to groups of individuals seeking the most efficient means of working together. Yours may be an organisation wishing to grow its corporate group nationally and internationally; or a group that wants to make a philanthropic difference in the community. ​

We're extremely well versed in dealing with all types of entities, from private and public companies, to social enterprises, charitable and not-for-profit structures, and trusts and foundations. We advise businesses on employee status, audits and reporting, and any potential liabilities. ​

Whatever your needs, we can advise on the most appropriate entity type, and draft suitable constitutional documentation and agreements to minimise business risk – and ensure your business fulfils all your ambitions.

But Libor’s shortcomings, which mainly include a vulnerability to manipulation revealed by several crises and scandals, led global financial regulators to replace it with more secure benchmarks.
Environmental, social and governance issues have become a priority not just for investors, but also regulators. In recent years, the EU has focused on orienting private investments toward sustainable finance, beginning with taxonomy regulation to more clearly define sustainable activities. It’s also developing ecolabels for financial products and setting climate change benchmarks.
