Restructuring and reorganisation

All businesses have to change the way they do things sometimes – we can help make it as painless as possible.

We know that all businesses have to change the way they work from time to time. Streamlining, preparing for sale, post-acquisition or for tax or financial reasons, whatever your motivation for restructuring your business, we can help smooth your way through what can be a complex legal process.

We look at all the angles

We’ll work closely with you to ensure that we have a thorough understanding of what you want to achieve for your business and we’ll help you to work out what issues you face. We’ll work closely with trusted tax and financial advisors to help you decide on the most effective structure for your business. We’ll help you to create a plan to take your business forward. And because we’re part of the business team, we can call on the expertise of colleagues in other teams across our organisation so we’ll be able to advise you on any issues that arise

A tailored service

We know that all businesses are different, so our service will be focussed on your needs. We’ll provide you with clear, practical advice based on our experience over many years with many different companies. All our commercial clients have a solicitor so you’ll always know who to call when you need to discuss things. And we’ll always talk to you in plain English and keep you informed of everything we do. Your business will be at the centre of everything.

How we can help

Our commercial solicitors are experts in all aspects of business law. So we can advise and guide you on matters such as

  • Mergers and demergers
  • Purchase of own shares 
  • Capital reduction 
  • Intra group transfers 
  • Group re-organisations 
  • Management buy-ins and buy-out

These can be complex issues, but we’ll do our best to keep everything as straightforward as possible.

Recent successes for clients
