Corporate Law

Vialex is corporate law

Our services include many specialisms but everything we do is underpinned by our knowledge and experience of general corporate law.

We can help whether you are establishing, buying or selling companies or businesses, raising funds (in particular by issuing equity) to finance their growth, putting in place complex equity entitlements (such as creating specific share rights or establishing a share option scheme) or negotiating the terms of any significant structural projects (such as taking a minority or majority stake in another entity or entering into a joint venture).

We also advise on day-to-day administration of companies, limited liability partnerships and general partnerships. That might be calling general meetings, amending constitutional documents, appointing or removing a director, managing a share issue/offer round or agreeing the terms of a detailed shareholders’ agreement or articles of association.

Whatever your corporate requirements and, whether you are a corporate, an investor, a private equity house, a management team or a private individual, Vialex has the knowledge and experience to assist.

Specific areas of advice

We have experience in advising on equity crowdfunding, part of the alternative finance revolution where companies use an FCA-regulated crowdfunding platform to pitch on the internet to a wide range of potential investors. We will ensure that the company’s “pitch” materials are complete and accurate, its constitutional documents suitable for investment, the process is undertaken professionally and that the company is ready for the challenges of a significantly larger shareholder base. Whatever the challenges crowdfunding can also bring considerable benefits, not least in terms of publicity and profile and as a method of engaging with potential customers.

What we did for...

It was important to us that our legal advisers were aligned to our business values, and we were impressed by the approach Vialex took to support our business by offering a ‘virtual’ in-house legal team who look after our day-to-day legal needs.

George Tait - Director and Company Secretary

We have worked with Vialex since 2012, following our buyout from a major UK foods group, when our fast evolving business required a different approach to meet our legal services needs in a cost effective way. At the time it was something of a leap of faith for Quorn Foods but we have been delighted with the service from Vialex, and the appetite they have shown to support us in any way they can.

David Artindale - Head of Procurement
We use the Vialex Legal Counsel Service as our day-to-day support for all our contracts and legal issues. They act as an extension of our own team and work with us to help us achieve our commercial goals. The subscription means we can get the advice we need when we need it for a fixed cost.

Arceeb Moughal - Director of Commercial

The Vialex Legal Counsel Service does what it says on the tin. We get a quality legal support service that responds to our needs, very often working to short timescales. The Vialex team has been particularly instrumental in assisting with our international contractual arrangements as we expand our reach into a number of new overseas markets.
