Business restructures, mergers, take-overs & earn-outs

Our employment team represents individuals on corporate overhauls and restructuring and in relation to team moves.

We advise owners and directors of private and owner-managed companies on the employment and tax implications of boardroom restructuring, takeovers, management buyouts and earn-outs, and we frequently negotiate the terms on a company’s transfer to a new structure.

Such business overhauls often involve drafting and reviewing executive service agreements, advising clients on redundancy consultations and severance issues, and helping UK clients navigate the implications of the TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings: Protection of Employment) Regulations on team moves.

Recent work 

  • Advising groups of executives in the UK on the implications of the TUPE regulations in the context of team moves.
  • Reviewing directors’ service agreements on management buyouts.
