Board Support services

The needs of one business will vary at times from the needs of another.  Contact us today to discuss your Company's requirements on 01444482222 or

With that in mind I want to give you just what your business requires and in a cost-effective way that relieves you of the extra administrative burden.

Whether you are a small or medium sized business private company, 
considering going public or AIMS listed having a committed co sec with legal expertise can really help you.

From registering a new company and providing a registered office address where you know a qualified barrister and co sec is on hand to deal with any legal notices or other correspondence, to acting as your own personal co sec/legal director, non-executive director or trustee on a retainer basis.
