Lodders has extensive corporate experience, with a portfolio which reflects our expertise.
Our team boasts a wealth of experience in the care home sector, having acted for several privately owned care homes. Lodders’ corporate lawyers also specialise in providing advice to a range of rural businesses, in particular on partnership agreements.

Under English Company law all companies are required to adopt articles of association, and often standard incorporation articles or default articles are not sufficient for a company’s needs.
We have extensive experience in the drafting and negotiation of articles of association. We can also draft and execute shareholders’ agreements and partnership agreements to protect you and your business.

Change is inevitable and businesses need to ensure they adapt over time. At Lodders, we understand that change can often be difficult and sometimes a complete reorganisation is in order. Our expert lawyers will be able to guide you through all stages of the restructuring process.

Whether the buying and selling of a business is an everyday occurrence for you or an entirely new concept, our lawyers understand that there is no room for error. From the due diligence stage, right the way through to completion and integration, our dedicated team will guide you through the process to ensure that the transaction is as seamless as possible.
