Company

Serle Court is counted among the best sets for company law, and its reputation in this area goes far beyond reflecting its exceptional strength in corporate insolvency. We are often the first port of call for clients involved in contentious disputes as directors or shareholders. In particular, in the area of internal and minority shareholders disputes, derivative actions and just and equitable winding up, several members of chambers have considerable experience and are acknowledged as outstanding practitioners.

This excellence is reflected in the fact that members of Chambers have written leading works in the area of contentious company work: Minority Shareholders: Law, Practice and Procedure by Daniel Lightman QC, David Drake, Tim Collingwood, Giles Richardson (and former member Victor Joffe QC) and The Practice & Procedure of the Companies Court edited by Alan Boyle QC and Philip Marshall QC with contributions from Philip Jones QC. Matthew Morrison and James Mather are on the panel of contributors to the Butterworths Corporate Law Service; Matthew has written chapters on Directors' Liabilities in Insolvency and Directors' Disqualification and James contributes on Directors' Conflicts of Interest, Remedies Against Directors and Limitation Issues in Corporate Litigation.

The range of work covered by Serle Court includes all aspects of non-contentious company work, particularly financial assistance, schemes of arrangement, reductions of capital, share transactions and takeovers.

In both contentious and non-contentious work, our clients in this area range from large companies and corporations, both domestic and overseas, to medium and small-size companies and their directors and shareholders. Whilst receiving instructions from a wide range of firms of solicitors throughout the country, we also receive instruction from foreign lawyers and others direct.
