About Corporate Structuring & Insolvency

One of the niche areas within the Ogier Leman Commercial Department is corporate structuring. We are experts at assisting groups of companies at domestic and international level with the Irish legal aspects of a transaction including a reorganisation, re-financing or a completely new legal structure.

Our Services

Complimenting the business law services that the Commercial Team already provides, some of the specific products we include are:

  • Mergers/cross border mergers
  • Company migrations
  • Interest-free loan structures
  • Establishment of Irish branch and place of business structures
  • Share capital reductions
  • Capital contributions
  • Intellectual property transfers/assignments and licensing structures
  • Corporate conversions (e.g. limited companies to unlimited, private companies to plc.’s etc.)
  • Entity simplification including solvent liquidations and strike offs
  • Deferred subscriptions
  • Formation and use of special purpose vehicles for financing structures and cash extractions
  • Legal opinions to support tax planning
  • New flexible structuring possibilities created by the enactment of the new Companies Act

Our Experience

At Ogier Leman we get involved from the feasibility stage through to step plans, documentation drafting, legal opinions and ultimate implementation. We know every aspect of the deal and understand the true value of it to the client. We work seamlessly with the clients’ tax advisors and our ‘can do’ attitude means we will make it our business to find a workaround to a potential problem or issue. We are there to support (both client and advisors alike) and we pride ourselves in doing exactly that.
