Corporate and Commercial

We advise on all aspects of corporate structuring and transactional work, including due diligence, acquisitions and disposals, mergers, shareholder agreements and joint venture arrangements, as well as insolvency, security enforcement and restructuring.

We provide constitutional documents, corporate authorisations and regulatory advice in connection with the establishment of Jersey structures. We also provide legal opinions and corporate advice, including advice where companies are entering into transactions, borrowing, granting security over their assets, making distributions, migrating, merging or winding up.

In addition to advising on Jersey law, we are also able to provide BVI legal opinions and advise on general BVI corporate and finance matters.

Our corporate clients range from directors and regulated trust companies to listed companies and funds.  We regularly work with leading onshore legal and tax advisors who require Jersey or BVI corporate law advice and have established a reputation for advising on complex high profile mandates.
