As a business grows and matures, it is often appropriate for it to undertake a reorganisation or restructuring, whether to increase business efficiency, secure tax advantages, ring-fence parts of the business, separate part of the business ahead of a sale or to allow for business preservation & exit, amongst other reasons.

We have extensive expertise and experience in advising businesses and corporate groups of all sizes on a range of group reorganisations and restructurings, from corporate group simplifications to demergers, schemes of arrangement, voluntary liquidation schemes, company strike-offs, capital reductions and share buybacks, together with various connected transactions, such as intra-group loans, dividends and share issues.

We advise on the legal framework of reorganisations and restructurings and work collaboratively with accounting and tax advisors to ensure that the reorganisation is kept as simple as possible, creates a structure that achieves the underlying commercial objectives and caters for the business’ future.
