Making good companies great

Bridgehouse Company Secretaries was founded in 2006 by director Ibi Eso. A trained lawyer and company secretary, she saw a gap in the market to provide flexible, personalised governance support to private and not-for-profit companies. Since then, she has sought out high calibre lawyers and chartered secretaries who share her passion for good governance and client satisfaction to join the Bridgehouse team.

As our reputation spread, Bridgehouse grew steadily over the years and today, our versatile team has extensive company secretarial, governance and legal expertise spanning a wide range of specialisms and industry sectors. We work closely with boards to embed tailormade governance frameworks in a wide range of organisations from multinational companies to membership bodies and housing associations.

Alongside all the company secretarial services businesses need to ensure statutory compliance, we focus on helping organisations address their governance issues, whether this involves complying with legislation, or setting-up, reviewing and working within an existing governance framework. Regardless of the shape your corporate governance is in, Bridgehouse Company Secretaries can help you ensure your business runs more smoothly, efficiently and with greater transparency.

From implementing internal controls and advising on regulatory compliance to improving risk management and board functions, we’re able to provide as much, or as little, support as you need. Through our Flex service, we can even source company secretaries to work on fixed-term contracts as part of your in-house team.

What sets us apart are our high levels of service and the strong relationship between Bridgehouse and our clients. This wholehearted commitment to our customers was recognised in 2016, when Bridgehouse won the coveted ICSA Service Provider of the Year award.

Governance guru Bob Tricker perfectly summed up what we do when he explained, “If management is about running the business, governance is about seeing that it is run properly.” We’re passionate about helping companies understand the importance of good governance and the enormous business benefits it can bring.

We pride ourselves on our ability to seamlessly integrate into our client companies and getting to know them intimately. This ensures the governance services we provide are always personalised, relevant and even, you could say, uplifting.
