Subsidiary Management

Increased merger and acquisition activity is making subsidiaries a more common part of the corporate structure in many industries. Subsidiaries can cause governance complications with additional, complex domestic and international regulations to keep abreast of and comply with.

All public companies are obliged to have a company secretary; following the 2006 companies Act, the post of company secretary became optional for private companies (unless their articles of association explicitly require them to have one). However, this does not make the role of company secretary any less vital for companies of all types and sizes.

We provide all of the required company secretarial services to manage your subsidiaries in accordance with each jurisdiction.
