The internal governance of your business is probably the last thing on your mind during your working day, but do you know what would happen if one of the stakeholders dies or even if there is just a fall-out?  Maybe you are thinking of entering into  a joint venture with someone else, but don’t know where to start.  It is important to understand the implications of changes like these on your business and also what protections are available to ensure that it survives and thrives.

Our specialist corporate solicitors provide a solutions-orientated commercial approach to ensure that if a difficult situation arises internally, you have the best protection available to protect stakeholders and your business.  We don’t just draft contracts governing the internal governance of your business, we also explain what is needed and can help you negotiate them.  We make it our business to know what each party brings to the table and this enables us to advise on the best tactics to be employed to provide the fairest outcome for all involved.

At Backhouse Jones, our corporate team are happy to assist.  We are experienced in advising on corporate commercial agreements of varying types and how they affect the day to day operations of your business.


Typical  corporate commercial agreements and arrangements we advise on include:
  • Confidentiality agreements.
  • Shareholder agreements.
  • Joint venture agreements.
  • Cross options.
  • Articles of Association.
  • Partnership agreements.

We act for businesses of all sizes and types and have an in-depth understanding of businesses in the bus, coach and HGV sectors and issues peculiar to them.   We will listen to your thoughts and respect the manner in which you run your business, because we understand that each stakeholder and business is different and that you want to get the job done.
