Spin-Outs & Restructuring

We bring in-depth understanding to spin-outs and restructuring

Completing a successful spin-out or legal restructuring requires a real understanding of a client’s commercial drivers, the assets being acquired, the type and structure of fund, and the fund management arrangements in place. This is what we give you.

As a client, you benefit from our in-depth understanding of both private funds and buyout transactions. This is complemented by our tax and regulatory expertise, which spans both areas. Working with us means working with lawyers who know about fund structures and terms, and the opportunities and limitations these bring. This enables us to execute deals quickly and efficiently.

We advise on all types of spin-out, including the establishment of new management vehicles, the terms of separation agreements, and acting on secondary transfers. We are familiar with the range of legal issues relevant to spin-outs, including bank capital and other regulatory requirements, accounting aspects, and employment law. And we have worked for investment teams and other financial institutions on team spin-outs.

Our lawyers' extensive experience of spin-outs and legal restructuring includes advising:

  • Investment teams on spinning out
  • Institutions on separation arrangements
  • On the establishment of new management vehicles
  • On related secondary transactions.

We have a full team specialising in this area.
