Global Company Secretarial Law Services

Company Secretarial Law pertains to the responsibilities and legal obligations of the Company Secretary, a key role within an organisation.

The Company Secretary ensures the smooth administration of the company, particularly in regard to legal and statutory compliance. Duties often include maintaining company records, managing board meetings, ensuring the company’s compliance with corporate governance norms, and acting as a point of communication between the board and shareholders.

Company Secretarial Law guides these activities, establishing the boundaries of the Secretary’s role and responsibilities. It includes elements of corporate law, securities law, and corporate governance, and touches on areas like the handling of legal documents, management of company records, and the correct procedures for reporting and disclosure.

Company Secretarial Law ensures that Company Secretaries fulfil their vital function in upholding the legal integrity of the company. It is a nuanced field requiring a clear understanding of the company’s business, regulatory landscape, and the legal requirements of corporate operations. The effective practice of Company Secretarial Law is essential to the legal and operational health of a corporation.
