A company is an entity that has a separate legal existence from its owners. The owners of the company are known as members or shareholders. Its legal status gives a company the same rights as a natural person which means that a company can incur debt, sue and be sued. Companies are managed by company officers who are called directors and company secretaries. However, creating a company is not always a straightforward process with many complicated moving parts to consider.
In addition to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) provisions, companies and their directors and management are governed by what are called constituent documents, such as a constitution and a shareholders’ agreement. These documents can be used to set things straight between various participants at the outset, to minimise the risk of dispute, and to be relied upon later to enforce your rights if things turn sour or someone goes rogue.
We have experience in both creating companies and drafting these documents to a high standard, andalso managing disputes and litigation, including those not only concerning company directors or shareholders, but creditors and regulators as well.
