We support clients in determining the best suited structure – be it a partnership, a corporation, a purely contractual relationship, or a combined structure, and in evaluating the liability, tax, governance and other implications thereof.

Corporate Reorganizations

We assist our corporate clients with the full spectrum of domestic and cross-border corporate reorganizations and the related tax and governance implications. Our corporate lawyers have extensive experience in structuring and implementing corporate reorganizations among related as well as unrelated parties (e.g., in the context of acquisitions or joint ventures) and cross border relocations. We also have a proven track record of cross-border corporate migrations.

Ownership Transitions

The corporate team regularly assists clients in developing novel solutions for retirement or decease of controlling shareholders, and in transitions from family to corporate ownership. When structuring transitions, our corporate lawyers work closely together with the firm’s tax and estate planning experts.
