In a world of increasing regulation, any form of transaction (particularly where there is a cross-border element) can become entrenched in often competing requirements and interests that require to be resolved, not just commercially, but also on a legal and documentary basis. In our practice, we continue to witness the negative effects of transactions that lack a pro-active conductor with both an awareness of the high-level commercial and legal/tax/accounting issues, but also a sensitivity and intimate knowledge of the granular detail of the processes involved for an expedited implementation. Often, such lack of direction and management can manifest itself as lengthy time delays, which can in turn lead to spiralling corporation tax and advisory costs.

With our experience, skills and broad network of legal, tax, accounting, corporate management, liquidation and other advisory professional contacts in numerous jurisdictions (including the United States, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the Cayman Islands, Malta and Cyprus, to name but a few), we are optimally placed to project manage transactions as cost and time-efficiently as possible (both in circumstances where we are formally engaged to do so, but also in situations where we are empowered with the practical mandate to pursue such a leading role vis-à-vis fellow advisors on a less formal basis, but given our experience and the advantage to the client in our so doing).

Our project management team are multilingual Corporate & Commercial and Tax practitioners, whom have been servicing ‘blue-chip’ multinationals, major private equity houses, and substantial family offices for over the last 2 decades. We continue to deal with all manner of corporate governance matters, structuring, servicing and divestment of high value private equity investments, redomiciliations and cross-border mergers, mergers and acquisitions, financing, refinancing and restructuring transactions [including in Chapter 11 scenarios], liquidations and broader insolvency aspects, as well as a whole range of general commercial transactions. We are also trusted non-executive directors for many of our clients, and between us can draw on a combination of industry and advisory experience in numerous fields.

Many of our clients are finding that our application of said experience in a project management role for them can significantly expedite matters and lower costs.

Recent examples of this include:

  • assisting a leading British headquartered private equity firm in the rationalisation and winding-up of a multi-jurisdictional corporate structure following a divestment of the primary asset, and involving exploring, optimising and managing pre-liquidation and liquidation processes and steps across relevant jurisdictions in pursuance thereof.
  • considering, advising and facilitating (and further ‘sense-checking’) additional external advice to a major financial institution in connection with their restructuring of certain arrangements with Gibraltar and Luxembourg corporate and tax considerations.
