Corporate Support

In a fast changing business world, companies and business owners can be involved in a number of transactions, ranging from the buying or selling of a business to mergers, transfers or restructures.

More about Corporate Support

Equally we appreciate that even with the best laid plans, companies can face difficult times and end up facing shareholder disputes or insolvency issues. Either way our highly experienced and specialist employment team can assist.

We work closely with our colleagues in Corporate and Insolvency to ensure that you have expert advice and guidance on any corporate transactions. We ensure our advice is commercial to achieve the optimum result for your business.

We can deal with any employee or worker related aspect of corporate transactions including:

  • Any level of Due Diligence required from high level to comprehensive;

  • Amending and negotiating on employment aspects of any asset or share purchase agreement;

  • TUPE advice and consultation;

  • Drafting Service Agreements or Consultancy Agreements for key individuals;

  • Drafting and advising on Settlement Agreements as appropriate;

  • Revision of terms and conditions and advice on the validity of any such changes;

  • Redundancy advice, including where necessary collective consultation, selection procedures ensuring compliance with discrimination legislation, voluntary redundancy and mutual agreement terminations;

We would also be more than happy to review your current employee contracts, handbooks and other related documentation to help ensure that you are legally compliant and everything is order in advance of any potential sale or merger.
