Confidence
in what we do

It’s been a pleasure working with Elemental who were highly recommended to me by one of our Non-Executive Directors. They haven’t disappointed and their complete-service approach has been both refreshing and practical, removing the gaps that occur between the various advisors as the implementation of the scheme crosses the legal, regulatory, accounting and taxation disciplines. I look forward to continuing to work with Elemental as we take Deepverge to the next stage of its growth.
Camillus Glover, CFO, Deepverge plc
When I took over as Chair of Innovate Finance three years ago, I looked for professional company secretariat support. I’m very pleased that I made the decision to contract with Nick Lindsay and his team at Elemental. Nick and his team have provided calm, consistent and very professional and ‘can do’ support across a wide range of issues, from keeping us compliant to supporting us on GDPR implementation, redrafting articles as situations changed, and managing governance changes. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Elemental to anyone looking for affordable, professional expert support from a thoroughly nice team.
Natalie Ceeney CBE, Chair, Innovate Finance
Superb service all through a transaction that involved parties in both the UK and the USA. Highly professional, fast and efficient with excellent updates, rapid responses to requests for information and with rigorous process appraisal before releasing materials. Undoubtedly a 5* service - recommend without hesitation.
Professor Miles Houslay, Co-Founder, BioTheryx Inc
I would highly recommend Elemental. We engaged Elemental for advice around our corporate structuring and they helped with a particularly tricky area that we needed specialist advice with. The team were friendly, knowledgeable and professional in everything they did, but most importantly, they were able to suggest practical and commercial solutions, which allowed us to achieve our goals. It was a pleasure working with them.
Katie Venn, US Client Account Manager, Chapel & York
As a solicitor specialising in property law, I used the services of Elemental in dealing with the statutory requirements of a newly formed company. I found Elemental helpful and efficient and fully conversant with current Companies House procedures and requirements.
Martin Lea, Former Senior Partner, Chancellors Lea Brewer LLP
Elemental CoSec has always taken the time to listen to and understand my business needs, providing timely and accurate advice. It’s good to know that there’s someone alongside me keeping an eye on the business essentials.

Following a competitive tender process, we are pleased to have appointed Elemental CoSec to assume responsibility as Company Secretary for HM Treasury UK Sovereign Sukuk PLC.
Kate Ivers, Deputy Finance Director, HM Treasury
As a multinational corporation with employees and offices in 4 countries, we frequently face issues that have the potential to distract the company our from our business priorities. Nick’s analytical ability and years of experience enable him to provide thoughtful, thorough, and, most importantly, practical legal advice regarding a wide variety of employment related issues. He responds quickly and clearly with analysis and advice aimed directly at the issue. I have worked with Nick for the past 10 months and have never been disappointed in any aspect of his work. I highly recommend Nick and his team at Elemental CoSec.
Shekar Chandra, Operations Manager, GRMS IT Consulting
Our business is to advise and list small to medium businesses undertake a public listing on international stock exchanges. We have used Elemental CoSec on a number of occasions to assist us in ensuring that these companies are initially compliant in every way and fixing issues that need to be rectified before establishing a listing entity. Working with the team at Elemental CoSec has been a dream as they are very professional in their services, prompt, courteous and always deliver in what they say they will in a timely manner. We would be happy to recommend them to any prospective clients.
Terry Richards, Head of Listing Management, Jenepé Capital
Elemental CoSec has been brilliant; clear and detailed, which is just what we need. Queries were always answered very promptly and you get personalised service. We have no problem recommending their services.

It’s been a pleasure working with Elemental CoSec who have guided us through the process with skill and care. We look forward to working with them in the future as we continue to grow.
Barry Amor, CEO, Microskin Plc
We recently engaged Elemental CoSec to provide company secretarial services for our public company. If you are in need of a experienced secreterial team, I would highly recommend engaging Elemental CoSec for any company that is looking for professional corporate services.
Simon St Ledger, CEO, Rapid Nutrition plc
Dealing with Elemental CoSec has been an absolute pleasure. Their subject matter knowledge was excellent. And what impressed me most, was the question and answer feedback, which was exemplary. Many thanks.
Diksesh Patel, CEO, Dream TimeLine Ltd
Nick and his team at Elemental CoSec are dependable, professional and provide a first class service. I have known Nick since his legal days and did not hesitate in introducing him to a high profile Australian client needing UK cosec services and he has delivered a consistently superb service on and from his appointment.
David Roberts, Partner, CMS
I instructed Elemental to draft Integrity Capital’s FCA authorisation application and compliance documentation. Our application was accepted by the FCA in good time and without issue. Tobias, our main point of contact at Elemental, guided us through the process with skill and care and has ensured that the team at Integrity is fully aware of all regulatory obligations. Integrity Capital now a fully-fledged regulated entity, continues to work with Elemental. The partnership allows our team to concentrate on providing an excellent service to our clients whilst being fully compliant. I am pleased to recommend Elemental to other investment advisers.
