We also offer experienced and practical advice on the establishment and operation of incorporated societies. We advise developers on the necessity and desirability of an incorporated society as a management tool in the context of land development, and the establishment of incorporated societies. We advise incorporated societies on their rights and obligations, governance issues and amendments to their constitutions.
