Business Reorganisations and Corporate Structures

When setting up a new business venture, there are many different corporate structures that a business can adopt. Our corporate solicitors can advise you on the benefits and risks of each structure and which is the most appropriate for you and your business.

Business Reorganisations and Corporate Structures

Following initial set-up, there are many reasons why a company, or group of companies, may want to reorganise its corporate structure. Examples include:

  • consolidating group companies into a more secure, simplified or tax efficient structure;
  • making the group more attractive to investors and lenders;
  • separating valuable assets from trading liabilities;
  • ring-fencing failing divisions into a separate company; and
  • extracting excess cash or fixed assets in anticipation of a disposal or investment.

Reorganisations are often structured around tax. We are able to work with your funders and financial and tax advisors to establish a corporate structure that achieves your aims and provides the greatest benefit and protection.

Business Reorganisations and Corporate Structures Advice

We commonly advise and assist on capital reduction demergers, section 110 demergers, intra-group transfers and hive-ups of assets and shares, schemes of arrangement, share buybacks and other changes to the share capital of a company.

We also advise financial institutions and investors in the context of investments and secured lending and insolvency practitioners where a solvent restructure or an insolvency process is anticipated.

Tollers advise generally on corporate structures to complement your business and interests and can assist with the legal processes required to carry this out, including reviewing existing arrangements and liaising with secured lenders to approve the new structure, identifying and advising on any company law and corporate governance issues, assisting with the intra-group transfer of assets and rights (including land and intellectual property rights, and the assumption of liabilities) and advising you on any employment processes including redundancy and TUPE and trade union consultations.
