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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
