Corporate advisory

Successfully navigating the modern global business environment, taking advantage of opportunities as they arise while avoiding legal and regulatory pitfalls, is a challenge for any entrepreneur, business or corporation, during all phases of the corporate life cycle.

As commercially minded lawyers committed to providing a high quality service and delivering within budget, we understand those challenges and, more importantly, seek to turn them into opportunities. We don't sit on the fence and are known for providing plain-speaking, direct advice. We take a broad view of our clients' interests. As well as tackling the legal risks, we work hard to help clients identify and manage key commercial and regulatory issues to get the deal done - on time, every time.

With a depth of multi-jurisdictional experience and offices in the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and London, we ensure that advice is provided in the context of other key offshore centres and with a knowledge of the bigger global picture.

Our clients appreciate our proactive attitude, sensible and user-friendly advice, accuracy and honesty in pricing matters, and senior-level involvement in all matters. In an increasingly complex, competitive and regulated market, we'll make sure your business or venture reaches its full potential.

Corporate advisory and governance

Good corporate governance and a sound understanding of directors' duties is critical. Regardless of size, establishing a best practice approach should be fundamental to all boards. The board of directors are responsible for ensuring the company achieves its objectives and the corporate governance framework they adhere to should underpin their accountability to the company and its members. We advise company boards at all stages in the corporate lifecycle, in solvent and insolvent scenarios.

Corporate reorganisations

Our team has deep experience in complex, multi-jurisdictional corporate reorganisations and reconstructions.

Whether leading the project, or working as part of an integrated team with co-ordinating onshore counsel, we can assist with the variety of debt and equity restructuring processes and procedures available in our Collas Crill jurisdictions; from mergers and acquisitions, to migrations and redomiciliation, to schemes of arrangement and the more innovative and flexible solutions our jurisdictions are known for.
