There are a number of different reasons for any business to review its governance and structure. We have worked with a number of professionals on a variety of transactions whether looking to protect certain assets, prepare a company for future sale plans, deal with succession planning or introduce new shareholders we have expertise and experience to assist.

We tend to provide such work on a fixed fee basis and work with accountants and our property teams as required to deliver a timely and succinct completion.

Typical transactions we are involved in include:

  • Capital reduction demergers – often carried out for the purpose of splitting business types, property portfolios or subsidiaries from the remainder of any group activities
  • Management buy-outs
  • Family buy-outs
  • Company incorporation of partnerships
  • Company purchase of own shares

Some of our more recent deals include:

  • Advising a client on a largescale demerger of three family owned companies holding a £49m property portfolio. We facilitated the division of the property assets into a number of separately owned holding companies, allowing each family member to control their own share of assets and income.
  • Advising a South West based Estate and Lettings Agency on the process of a management buyout. We assisted the management team on acquiring the existing company in a way that minimised any financial strain on the buyer or existing company
  • Advising a client on the purchase of own shares by a management and consultancy services company to facilitate the retirement of one of its members
