Corporate Restructuring

Our corporate restructuring team has extensive experience working with businesses of all sizes to help them reshape their future. Whether acting to simplify a large corporate group structure or urgently to safeguard a business interest, our commercial insight combined with legal expertise can help your business achieve its aims.

The experience of our team spans multiple sectors from life sciences and healthcare, through to the motor industry and local government and we are adept at working closely with stakeholders to investigate all available options for a corporate restructuring exercise.

Our clients range from large corporate groups, financial institutions, family-run businesses and company directors through to insolvency practitioners and creditors.

To set your business on the right track for future growth we can involve our lawyers in other teams to support the restructuring exercise, including employment, real estate, tax and regulatory law. We also work closely with other advisors to ensure that any restructuring exercise withstands scrutiny from tax authorities or potential acquirers.

When companies find themselves in financial distress, we work creatively to find practical, efficient solutions including exploring formal insolvency options.

Our specialist team advises on complex corporate restructures, reorganisations, demergers and disposal strategies, pre and post-acquisition restructurings, through to standalone corporate actions such as demergers, share and asset transfers, share buy-backs and reductions, employee transfers, share re-classification schemes and shareholders’ agreements.

Related expertise include: Banking & Finance, Joint Ventures, MBOs & MBIs, Private Equity & Venture Capital.
