Buying, selling and restructuring

Overview

If you are looking to purchase, dispose or restructure your business, we can help. We work with our colleagues across the entire breadth and depth of the firm, from tax and assurance to advisory, to ensure we provide you with the specialist knowledge you need to make the right decisions.

Our dedicated specialists can also design and help implement the optimal structure for your transaction by providing solution support across a broad range of transactions, including acquisitions, divestments, group reorganisations, financial restructurings and strategic alliances.

If your business is currently facing financial stress, early action can help resolve the problems and avoid insolvency. Many borrowers have seen the value of their business and property dissipate in recent years. We can provide tailored business reviews designed to help businesses that are underperforming, in distress or in crisis and assist with their recovery.

  • Ensuring your transaction is both commercially and financially efficient.
  • Ensuring the structure of your potential acquisition or disposal is tax efficient.
  • Incorporating a group of companies into your corporate structure.
