Joint ventures

Joint ventures can offer a practical solution to business requirements. Usually they involve existing businesses agreeing to join forces to develop a new business. Joint ventures can also help to share the risk of any initial investment.

Corporate governance

The Directors of a company have to understand how the law affects their duties to stakeholders, creditors, the company and its shareholders. Our corporate lawyers advise on all aspects of corporate governance including:

  • Incorporations
  • Articles of association
  • Stakeholder agreements
  • Company constitutions
  • Statutory books
  • Resolutions
  • The appointment and removal or directors and company secretaries
  • Directors’ duties
  • Shareholder rights and structure
  • Companies House compliance and returns

Share Capital

Selling shares is the easiest way to change share ownership. Existing company shareholders can buy and sell shares between them or a new party can buy from a current shareholder through a share sale agreement.


Often to increase shareholder value, business activities can be separated by the stakeholders into individual companies – a demerger. The team at Newtons offer a full service support to demerging companies, including commercial, dispute resolution, employment, commercial property and private client.
