International Corporate Reorganizations

The global challenges of a constantly changing regulatory landscape and the need for complex groups to have efficient corporate and operating business reporting lines means companies have to regularly review their own global entity structures.

When combined with strategic acquisitions or divestitures, business transformation plans, financial reporting or fiscal changes in any particular jurisdiction or releasing capital within a group, in house teams whether legal, compliance, finance, treasury or tax can become stretched.

Eversheds Sutherlands cross-border teams routinely advise on and implement restructuring and rationalisation projects designed to achieve the business needs outlined and to minimise the burdens of complex corporate structures. The teams also work on integration projects post acquisition as well as reorganisations or carve outs required for a disposal. Cash and dividend release programs are also a core strength of the team.

Working along your financial, commercial risk, tax and legal teams we can add valuable support, either via one off projects or regular retainer arrangements, through each restructuring or rationalisation process.

Our corporate, tax, commercial, regulatory and compliance, employment, pensions, IP, IT, and Real Estate lawyers work together across jurisdictions and disciplines to help clients implement new, fiscal efficient structures.

Typical corporate reorganizations

Although each reorganization is unique, the majority of business transformations will typically fall into one of the following categories:

  • spin-offs, separations and carve-outs
  • legal entity rationalization and simplification
  • cash utilization (e.g. cash pools, dividends payments, intra-group financing) and cash repatriation
  • establishment of corporate headquarters and holding company structures
  • cross-border mergers, redomiciliations and migrations
  • post-merger/acquisition integrations
  • establishment of fiscal units between group companies
  • establishment of supply chain structures
  • joint-ventures
  • other types of business transformations
"The Eversheds Sutherland team made a significant contribution to the design and execution of this transaction. The competence, skill and attitude of the team has enabled us to complete this complex deal in record time. Colleagues from other divisions are already asking for support from the attorneys involved, which can serve as a clear indication of what Eversheds Sutherland has done on this project."

Lars Sjobring, General Counsel of Autoliv
