Incorporation & Company Structure

We can advise and assist you with setting up the correct legal structure for your new company, as well as provide all the documentation required. We can also help you to deal with risks and opportunities involving the transfer of ownership of the business in the case of death, disability or disputes.

Shareholders’ Agreements and Constitutions

If you wish to govern the way your company is run and the methods by which the shareholders can exercise their rights to shares, we can help.

Our lawyers can explain the important differences of a shareholders’ agreement and a company constitution. The two agreements are commonly confused due to their similarities, however, the agreements have important differences that allow each agreement to be beneficial in specific situations.

A shareholders’ agreement is essentially a confidential book of rules for shareholders, which can be very useful if your company has multiple shareholders. A company constitution can be adopted to set out the rules on how the company is run, allowing you to differentiate from the ordinary rules set out in the Companies Act 1993. Although this may seem similar, a company constitution is not confidential as a copy of the constitution and other details must be disclosed to the Companies Register.

The team at Evolution Lawyers can offer you advice on whether one, or both, of the agreements are appropriate for each distinct situation and can inform you of the obligations that will arise from establishing either agreement.

Company Administration

A company is a separate legal entity from its directors and shareholders. Understanding the complexities of how a company works and the ongoing obligations can be challenging. The team at Evolution Lawyers can manage these details so you don’t need to.

We offer a full range of company administrative services, including filing annual returns and maintaining company records, to help ensure the company complies with its legal obligations. We can also help achieve best practice governance.

Evolution lawyers was able to get on our case as we had a live deal with the property we were wanting to purchase (first home). It was George who was assigned to us and we're very happy. He was thorough with his work and is easily reachable when we have questions. Thank you George! 🙂

I have dealt with Evolution Lawyers previously and while everything was completed it was a slower experience. I dealt with them again now with a new Solicitor Samuel Chand. Sam was always helpful, always easy to get hold of by email, phone or text and my actions were completed on time.

I am very impressed with this law firm. My first contact has been my Will. Tamina is delightful and very astute. I have never met her, but our first and detailed phone conversation was enough to make me feel comfortable and in safe hands. Tamina quickly understood what I needed and promptly sent me the extra clauses needed. The Will is now completed. She is empathetic, polite and clearly loves her work. I will be using Evolution Lawyers for any future work I need done. Thank you Tamina.

In our property buying experience, George from Evolution Lawyers has been absolutely fantastic, always picking up the phone and explaining some confusing points we encountered. The firm will definitely be our first choice when it comes to conveyancing. I would absolutely recommend them!

I had a case where I was looking around for a family member who was not mobile. Another lawyer put it in the too hard basket, but Evolution Law heard me out. I can not say enough about the great experience I had with Evolution Law. Lindy worked on my case, I felt heard, and she went back to make sure she could help. I was so happy they could take on our case. She kept me informed the whole way through and never made me feel like she was too busy even though I know they are busy. She pulled out all the stops. LINDY You are a star, you helped when I thought it was not possible! Thank you for everything and your wonderful team for helping my brother and I out. Your help has actually helped more than just the two of us. I am truly grateful for your help. Thank you.
