Governance & compliance services in Belfast & Northern Ireland

Our team of corporate lawyers are known to be pragmatic in the manner they offer advice and guidance. Some of the ways that we can help you solve problems surrounding governance and compliance include:

  • Advising on your articles of association, shareholders agreement and directors agreement.  
  • Helping you develop transparent, fair and responsible corporate governance.

Our mission is to shield you from future pitfalls by ensuring your governance and compliance are of the requisite standard.

Corporate Governance

Corporate governance refers to the rules that govern the board of directors and the rest of their organisation by extension. Your corporate behaviour is dictated by these rules, by-laws, polices and resolutions that you have in place. We understand how important it is to have high standards of corporate governance and our solicitors are readily available to provide you with tailored advice.

Corporate governance also encompasses the legal structure the organisation will adopt. If you are starting a new business or organisation, or an existing one is evolving, you need to consider what kind of legal entity it should be. For example, should you be a limited liability (Ltd) company, a limited liability partnership (LLP), a charity, a sole trader or something else entirely? It is vital that a business has the correct structure for reasons of protection against liability and tax mitigation. The corporate lawyers at McCartan Turkington Breen are on standby to provide quality expert advice on the right structure for you and your business.

Corporate Compliance

Corporate compliance is often compared to a minefield. It refers to the many laws and regulations that organisations must adhere to. Some businesses might have to comply with regulations that others may not. The compliance solicitors of McCartan Turkington Breen are available to offer advice and guidance with a view to keeping you compliant and well away from any potential pitfalls. Our team can assist you with requests such as freedom of information requests (FOI) and subject access requests (SAR). We can further advise on legislation and regulations such as the Companies Act, Enterprise Act, Intellectual Property Act, Patents Act, B/CAP Code, GDPR and perhaps a host of others that you might not even know you are subject to.
