Joint Ventures, Corporate Structures & Reorganisations

When our clients wish to enter a joint venture, we help establish the best course and map it all out: from identifying and documenting each shareholder’s expectations and inputs all the way to working out possible exits from the joint venture. We like to make every detail perfectly clear – the contributions of each party, their rights to nominate members of managing bodies, decision-making, share transfers, drag- and tag-alongs and other related rights and obligations – so that you are equipped for any eventuality. We excel at complex cross-border mergers, where we connect our international resources for maximum competence and efficiency. In cases of reorganisations we focus on whether the current corporate structure is supporting the client’s business or should be changed – for example, by splitting up different lines of business, or by merging companies that are involved in the same kind of business. Since we work closely with clients on a variety of matters, we can often proactively suggest carrying out a reorganisation so that matters can be solved before they become issues – by making structures more efficient or less risky – or saving capital by restructuring.
