Corporate Services

Our corporate services team offers an extensive portfolio of services to an international client base ranging from smaller organisations through to multinationals. The diversity of our clients’ interests means the value of individual structures under administration range substantially from several million US dollars to in excess of a billion US dollars. In 2014, we were involved in providing the administration services for the Initial Public Offering of Gulf Marine Services PLC, which listed on the London Stock Exchange.

We pride ourselves in offering a proactive, flexible and competitive service tailored to our clients’ requirements, which we believe is key to developing long-term relationships based on trust, excellence and integrity.

The remit of our corporate services is extremely broad. We aim to be open-minded and, whilst we prefer not to confine the scope of what we can assist with, examples include:

  • Investment holding vehicles and transaction specific special purpose vehicles
  • Listed structures for markets including the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) and the London Stock Exchange Main Market
  • Cross-border investment structures
  • Protected cell companies
  • Corporate bond issuances
  • International trading companies
  • Employee benefit structures
  • Substance services
  • Debenture trustee services
  • Escrow services
  • Trustees on retirement benefit schemes

We offer a comprehensive service including formation, full scope administration and secretarial services, compliance monitoring and provision of directors. The precise nature of the services we provide may vary depending on the scope and objective of the structure in question; however these typically include:

  • Formation of the relevant entities within the structure
  • Coordinating advice from local and international lawyers and advisors
  • Provision of company secretarial services and registered office
