With so many people affected by a corporate restructure, it is important you have the legal backing to help the process run smoothly. You might be searching for the most tax-efficient way to organise your assets and revenue streams, or you could be concerned about how business property will need to be distributed. Through your reorganisation, you will want to ensure your shareholders continue to see value in your business, and you will also need to navigate important employment and contractual requirements.

When you’re planning a reorganisation, we will act as an extension of your team to help you navigate the entire process in an efficient way. As your partner, we take the time to understand your business objectives. Based on your goals, we will set strategic steps, so you can have complete confidence in the management of your restructure, from start to finish.


Our Corporate Team has worked on a number of high-profile cases, including:

  • instructing the re-organisation of the European arm of a US-owned multinational, in line with cutting-edge tax advice
  • advising a FTSE 100 company on its group and brand restructure
  • supervising the restructure of a financial services group in order to impose a regulatory capital position


  • balance sheet restructuring
  • business reorganisations
  • business restructures
  • capital reductions
  • capital reorganisation
  • refunding


It was imperative we received the very best legal advice.  Jonathan and his team played a pivotal role throughout, demonstrating great commercial awareness and discretion.
