If your business needs to carry out a restructure of organisation structure, financial or operating arrangement or changes in locations, we can play a crucial role. Corporate restructuring is a complex process that may involve various legal, financial, and strategic considerations.

The extent of our role will vary depending on the size and complexity of your business operations, however, the following highlights the typical roles we might play during this process.

  • Legal Analysis and Due Diligence: Conduct a comprehensive legal analysis of the company’s current structure, contracts, and obligations. Perform due diligence to identify potential legal issues and risks associated with the restructuring.
  • Restructuring Strategy: Work closely with the company’s management and stakeholders to develop a strategic plan for the restructuring. Advise on the legal implications of different restructuring options, such as mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and insolvency proceedings.
  • Transaction Structuring: Assist in structuring the transaction, including drafting and negotiating transaction documents. Ensure compliance with relevant laws, regulations, and corporate governance requirements.
  • Contractual Arrangements: Review and renegotiate existing contracts as necessary. Advise on the legal implications of terminating or renegotiating contracts during the restructuring.
  • Stakeholder Communication: Assist in communicating with stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, creditors, and regulatory bodies. Manage legal aspects of shareholder meetings and approvals.
  • Post-Restructuring Compliance: Ensure ongoing compliance with legal obligations post-restructuring. Assist in implementing governance structures that align with the company’s new configuration.
