Legal Services: International Business Reorganisations

Helping you to navigate the complexities of global structuring

Simplify, speed up and add value to your structuring projects

In a fast-changing global marketplace, structural and business flexibility has become a competitive necessity for large organisations. Any business undertaking any structuring change, for whatever reason, must be alert to the legal risks involved in that change. Our international structuring lawyers are well versed to manage these risks. We design multi-jurisdictional structuring plans and provide full implementation support.

How we can help

Multinational reorganisations are frequently required to streamline or eliminate entities, businesses or intercompany arrangements, as well as to achieve improved business alignment.

Although they sometimes look deceptively simple, they can be incredibly complex, and can often require broad-reaching global and local multi-disciplinary expertise. Our international structuring lawyers, working together with tax, accounting, and other business consultants, as well as project managers and technologists, can help you navigate the complexities of global reorganisations.

We bring:

  • Lessons learned from some of the largest global corporate structuring projects delivered for FTSE 100, Fortune 500, and other international groups
  • Centrally coordinated local expertise in more jurisdictions than any other law firm can offer, through our global legal network of 3,700 lawyers in 100 countries
  • Technology solutions and tools to improve efficiency and rigour, measure our performance, and allow you access to information in real time. Our tools ensure projects are managed more effectively, and information is provided in an interactive, user-friendly way
