It often falls to the Company Secretary to deal with practical and company law issues in relation to Shareholders, to act as an intermediary between the Board and the Shareholders, and to coordinate the Shareholders’ decision-making process. The Shareholders’ meeting is a key corporate body in every company. The Shareholders are notably responsible for deciding on general strategy, amendments of articles of association, appointment and removal of Board members, approval of annual accounts, or dissolution of a company. Therefore, ensuring that all Shareholders’ decisions are taken in compliance with the applicable legislation is one of the Company Secretary’s major roles.
