We can provide company secretarial support and deal with all your paperwork and reporting requirements for Companies House and the Charity Commission.
If you or your organisation are faced with an employment problem, we can guide you through the process, from preparing contracts and staff handbooks to advising on redundancy procedures and claims for unfair dismissal or discrimination.
