Corporate Restructuring, Formation and Organisation
Blacks Solicitors’ Corporate team has considerable experience in business formations and corporate restructuring.
You may decide to incorporate your business or partnership for a variety of reasons, whether it’s with a view to reducing personal liability or to take advantage of the flexible ownership and financing structures which a limited company is better suited to provide.
Equally, there are a host of reasons which may prompt a demerger, including the wish to distribute the company’s assets between owners who no longer want to be in business together, separating more conservative investment businesses from commercially riskier trading businesses, or separating diverse operations with a view to disposing of the separate businesses to different buyers.
Whatever the underlying motive, corporate restructures are a minefield for the unwary and the inexperienced. Knowledge of relevant legislation, detailed planning, and proper tax advice are essential foundations.
Early collaboration between lawyers, accountants, and tax advisers who all understand your objectives and have experience of both the opportunities and the potential pitfalls are key to completing reorganisations with the minimum fuss and expense. Some of the things we can assist you with are:
- Articles of Association
- Shareholders’ Agreements
- Partnership Agreements
- LLP Agreements
- Share Buybacks
- Share for Share Exchanges
