In this leaner commercial climate, businesses are increasingly considering whether their corporate structures are maximising the operational and tax efficiencies available to them.
Our corporate team can advise on group reorganisations and restructurings, allowing clients to streamline their existing business and re-evaluate their liabilities.
We act for corporate groups on complex, multi-phase restructurings, often acting as part of multi-adviser teams, and we have advised on a number of multi-jurisdictional reorganisations for large corporate groups.
Our expertise includes:
- reductions of capital
- share capital/investment restructuring
- restructurings to overcome dividend blocks
- rationalising of intra-group loan positions
We regularly advise on hive-ups, hive-downs, intra-group share and business sales. This is in addition to transitional services, banking and security restructuring, pre-sale reorganisations and schemes of arrangement. We also act for administrators, buyers and businesses subject to insolvency.
