Reorganisations and demergers


We have seen an increasing number of solvent restructurings, demergers and reorganisations in recent years, due in part to the constantly changing regulatory environment and changes in tax regimes throughout the world.

Demergers, reorganisations and solvent restructurings are often highly complex and multijurisdictional, requiring an in-depth understanding of the commercial, technical, regulatory and tax issues surrounding them. As a firm, we have a high level of expertise in each of these areas and our corporate team works closely with other specialist teams in the firm, and appropriate experts in other jurisdictions, to ensure that our clients receive seamless, specific advice covering all facets of the transaction.

Our extensive experience includes the reorganisation of multinational groups, the reconstruction of groups to achieve long-term viability, the restructuring of the share capital of companies, the use of schemes of arrangement and other court processes and the redomiciliation of companies to overseas jurisdictions.

Our outstanding expertise in advising on these types of transactions is widely recognised in the market, as is evidenced by the transactions on which we have been instructed.

Our restructuring and insolvency group, which includes a number of our corporate partners, also advises on insolvent and distressed restructurings.
