Main Areas Of Practice


Our lawyers are highly experienced in dealing with all types of restructuring, including:

Intra-group reorganisations

Whether you wish to adapt to changes in the market you operate in or reorganise your corporate structure as part of a future sale strategy, we can advise you on the steps necessary to achieve your desired outcome.

Refinancing

We work closely with colleagues from our Banking and Finance team to deliver seamless commercial advice that is backed by the knowledge and experience of lawyers undertaking finance transactions in a wide range of sectors.

Demergers

A group of companies may need to be split up as a result of a relationship breakdown between shareholders or in order to allow for diversification. We can explain your options and provide you with realistic and relevant advice.

Share capital buy-backs

We can prepare the necessary documents to facilitate a shareholder exit, whether as a stand-alone step or as part of a wider restructure of a company's ownership structure.

Capital reductions

We can prepare the necessary documents to assist your company to create distributable reserves or to return surplus capital to its shareholders.

Our Clients


Our restructuring lawyers advise and act for a broad range of corporate clients, from owner managed businesses to multinational groups of companies.

Highlights


Advising a family-owned construction business on the creation of two separate groups. In order to achieve the new structure, various steps were required to be undertaken, including intra-group business and asset transfers, incorporation of new entities, a share for share exchange and a demerger by way of a three-cornered reduction of capital. 


Assisting a group in the healthcare sector to simplify its group structure as a pre-cursor to a sale of the trading group. The transaction involved the assignment of inter-company balances, capital reductions and the dissolution of all non-trading entities in the group.


Acting for a company in the energy sector to facilitate urgent funding. The refinancing exercise included the exit of the existing majority shareholder by way of share buy-back and the creation of option arrangements in order to allow the new funder to become a majority shareholder in the company.
