Company law

Altmore is committed to providing quality service at competitive prices within your timescales. We help identify and assess company law risks (statutory or at common law) and remove or step round any stumbling blocks to what is in your best interests. We take pride in these professional values.

The Technology Research Centre Limited were forming and growing their Science & Technology group. They develop their own and others’ breakthrough products and processes, then take these to market. Below, Andrew Miles, a Director, summarises what happened:

Initially recommended by our accountants, we obtained bespoke articles of association and shareholders agreements, then share options and several technology licences, from Altmore. More recently we entered into a relatively complex vision technology joint venture with a leading global fruit growing organisation.

Altmore Business Law has turned around everything we have thrown at it with alacrity, agility and clarity – this always with technical confidence and good humour. When the need has arisen, Altmore has negotiated successfully against much larger law firms.

Company and business sale brokers Ventura Business Brokers Limited serve client business transactions in the £750k to £10m value range, across the UK. Director Steve Batch believes that having a very good solicitor is critical to achieving a successful completion once an in-principle sale has been agreed.

After several successful completions Steve Batch reported: We have been extremely impressed with the way in which you have dealt with the transactions we have worked on together. As ever, each deal had its own particular complex issues but your ability to work to deadlines and adopt a 'selling team' approach, led to timely completions to the total satisfaction of our mutual clients.
