Directors

Whether you are a director of a FTSE100 plc or a non-executive director of a fast-growth technology firm, you will have a wide range of legal liabilities and duties that you need to understand and comply with. In addition, you need to appreciate the legal implications of the strategic and executive decisions that you make. 

Complimentary training
At Kemp Little, we help directors get to grips with the myriad corporate governance rules and regulations through a complimentary range of services, events and information. As part of this package of support, we provide a rolling programme of targeted training for directors in various sectors as well as PE- and VC-backed companies. 

Bespoke training and corporate workshops
We deliver bespoke training and workshops on a wide range of legal issues, including corporate transactions, and on a range of other regulatory and technology-focused topics. These are provided free to clients and at a small fixed-price charge to other organisations. 

Understanding technology
Directors need to understand the latest changes and trends in technology to ensure that they can adequately assess decisions made by your board to buy, change, implement or outsource technology and IT services. You also need to be aware of the opportunities and risks provided by the data that your organisation holds. Our annual technology conference looks at what’s new, what’s changed and how you should deal with it.

Fundraising
We routinely advise technology companies on early-stage and follow-on equity fundraisings and debt financings. Our experience of working with the leading technology-focused VCT, venture capital and private equity funds means we understand the issues that are important to them and can provide pragmatic and commercial advice to directors seeking finance for their companies.

Tax
Tax is a critical issue on almost every deal. Our tax group advises corporates and entrepreneurs alike and we offer the full range of business tax services, including UK and international tax, VAT/sales tax, duties and share-incentive schemes. We pride ourselves on offering tax advice that is commercial and clear.

LaunchPad
If you are a director of a start-up or SME, you may be interested in our online service that provides legal materials to small and emerging companies. LaunchPad covers every scenario, but they will be enough to get your business up and running. We appreciate that not all businesses are ready to make the leap to formally engaging lawyers or incurring legal spend at a time when cash is tight. We have put together LaunchPad to steer businesses towards high-quality precedents and guidance and to save money in the early days while the business and product are being honed. LaunchPad includes shareholder agreements, employment contracts, software licences and more.
