Whatever your business need, from creating the best company structure to protecting and licensing your intellectual property, we can deliver a service tailored to you, whether simple or bespoke:
Ready formed limited companies
Get started quickly with a company that is set up and ready to go.
Articles of association
Don’t let the wrong Articles hinder your business. We can craft Articles based around your culture and objectives so that you are able to take your business forward.
Shareholder and Partnership agreements
With the right agreement in place you can protect your minority shareholders and investors. It also provides you with viable exit routes from the venture. We can draw up agreements tailored to your individual circumstances.
Well-drafted board minutes are essential to protect individual directors. We can draw up your minutes to ensure they accurately document complex transactions and arrangements.
Directors’ service contracts
These are likely to be the most important employment contracts you have. Having them drawn up or reviewed by our expert solicitors can clarify the relationship between all parties and avoid misunderstanding and unnecessary costs in the future.
Incorporation of cross insurance arrangements for partners and directors
Your people are among your most valuable assets. We can put the necessary safeguards in place should the unthinkable happen to a partner, director or other essential personnel.
All businesses go through periods of change. When this happens it is important to make sure your business has the right structure to enable you to get the most out of its assets and maximise its opportunities. Please visit our Company Restructuring page for more information.
I contacted Barrett and Co to get my Will prepared. Charlotte Fox is the Solicitor that dealt with it. My meeting at there offices with Charlotte and her Trainee was exceptionally smooth and reassuring. I found Charlotte very understanding and approachable. I am delighted with her service and the firm's ethos. Will recommend confidently to my friends and to myself for any legal or statutory matter.
Excellent service. I would highly recommend using Paul Wild for divorce proceedings. He is friendly and great at explaining all the wording that courts like to use . You are greeted by a wonderful receptionist who makes you feel very relaxed in what was a very stressful time. Which helped a lot. Thank you .
We are an International Sports Federation and needed assistance with getting our Federation incorporated as a Company with Limited Liability. We were walked through the whole process with incredible professionalism but also a lot of understanding and flexibility in the various services required. Jane Whitfield did a wonderful "hand-holding" exercise and once we had completed our incorporation she again walked us through the whole process of registering as a Charity. This process was also completed successfully. As the person that worked very closely with Barrett Co and Jane in particular, I can testify not only to the professionalism, but also the friendly and efficient way in which the whole process was dealt with until completion. We are looking to walk a long road with this company as we deal with further legislative requirements.
Justin Sadler supported me through the process of agreeing a compromise / settlement agreement with my employer. He was very understanding both of my position and of what the legal position was. He asked lots of questions to make sure he understood the fact pattern and then put my case forward to get the best deal possible. I was very happy with the overall outcome and the significantly increased offer we received from the employer. I would happily use Justin again and would recommend the use of him and his team.
Good firm as I used them for debt collection of significant six-figure sum. Well worth the money paid as it was a fraction of the amount owed. Justin Sadler handled the case for me. You get what you pay for.
