What is a Group Reorganisation?
Group reorganisations are usually contemplated in order to combat the changing economic environment or in anticipation of a sale. Common group reorganisations can include:
- Merging or demerging;
- Intra-group reorganisations;
- Share acquisitions; or
- Simplifying the corporate structure of a business.
Our corporate team, headed by renowned corporate solicitor Giles Clegg, has the specialisms you require with regard to corporate restructuring, finance and tax and dispute resolution, so you can be sure that you are receiving only legal advice that is perfectly tailored to you and your business.
At Lupton Fawcett, we have acted for a range of organisations, including financial institutions, insolvency practitioners and businesses that have implemented successful reorganisations and benefitted from the tailored structure provided. No matter what your business is, we’re confident we can help you plan and execute a smooth and efficient reorganisation.
Planning a Group Reorganisation
When planning a complex group reorganisation, there are several steps that a business must take. These include:
- Planning and discussing your ideas with stakeholders
- Consulting with accounting, legal advisors and considering tax issues
- Planning the steps that need to be taken to achieve the reorganisation
- Gaining approval from any stakeholders or partners
- Creating a business asset/transfer agreement
- Striking off or liquidate companies
Of course, some of these steps are more complicated than others and it is advised to seek legal advice at the earliest possible stage in the process.
