Mergers and restructures
Our lawyers are adept at handling the employment implications of boardroom restructuring, takeovers, management buyouts and earn-outs.
We regularly act for company owners and directors, drafting and reviewing executive service agreements, advising clients on redundancy consultations and severance issues, and helping clients navigate the implications of the TUPE regulations on business transfers.
Our recent cases include advising the senior management team of Candy Crush Saga’s owner King.com during its acquisition by Activision Blizzard. This high-profile deal, during which our clients signed new long-term contracts and we negotiated their bonus structures, appeared on the front page of the FT and involved cross-jurisdictional employment and share issues.
We also represented executives of a US retail brand with annual revenues of more than $400 million in a complex transaction involving the buy-out of their equity interests.
Our work often has an international dimension and, with offices across the globe and client interests in over a 100 countries, we frequently advise senior executives on secondment and cross-border relocation arrangements.
We have the benefit of back-up from our colleagues in our personal tax and wealth planning teams, enabling us to offer a fully integrated service for clients looking to structure their personal and business assets tax-efficiently.
