Group & capital restructuring

Group & capital restructuring

"Shoosmiths has a 'very helpful, friendly and personal team'."

The Legal 500

We realise that in order to advise your business we need to understand it. This is particularly important when helping with any group or capital restructuring.

Shoosmiths has a team of lawyers with extensive experience in the field of group and capital restructuring, who pride themselves on providing an unstuffy, pragmatic and can-do approach to your needs.

We understand that there are a variety of reasons why a restructuring may be undertaken (such as to achieve a tax saving or to simplify your group), and we can help you spot potential issues before they arise.

We appreciate the importance of working as a team with your accounting and tax advisers and will use our considerable experience in project managing your restructuring to ensure it runs as smoothly, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
