A new kind of approach
Until early in the year 2011, FRC’s Company Secretarial services were offered as part of the mainstream services of the firm. However, the firm witnessed significant growth in the number of companies it offers such services to. With a view to improving efficiency and expeditious delivery of value added services to its growing number of clients, a new company, Funmi Roberts & Co. Nominees Limited (‘FRCN’) was incorporated to handle this aspect of the firm’s services. FRCN continues to engage in the incorporation of different types of companies at the Corporate Affairs Commission and actively engages in the setting up of the companies, offering legal advice and opinion. Solicitors in this new department participate at the meetings of the Board and members of the companies, issue notices, produce and keep appropriate minutes and records on their behalf. FRCN also ensures that all requisite statutory compliance issues as well as mandatory returns expected to be filed with all regulatory authorities are promptly filed.
