Restructuring & Reorganisations

Restructuring a company or a group of companies can have benefits including, ring-fencing risk, tax efficiencies, to facilitate change of ownership, or to simply tidy up following an acquisition of another company or business.

We work closely with accountants and tax advisers to navigate the legal issues and produce the legal documentation to implement the proposed structure.

The process may involve activities such as a hive-up, hive-down, demerger, dividend in specie, share for share exchange, return of capital, share reclassification or share sub-division.
