Trusts & Corporate Structures

It is imperative for businesses to use the corporate structure that aligns with their commercial position and business objectives.  A sound trust and corporate structure should be bespoke to meet a client’s tax, asset, estate planning and succession needs.

We take the time to work with our clients to understand their commercial circumstances and key requirements.  This enables us to devise the best corporate structure for their desired commercial outcomes. Our experienced lawyers can prepare and advise on corporate structures ranging from family ventures to multinational corporations. Our team pride themselves on explaining the legal implications of the business structure to clients.  We believe that it is vital for business owners to understand the legal effects of the structure they have selected.

This means you can make informed decisions about the future of your business. For example, if you don’t understand the legal effect of the structure you have selected, this could have adverse tax implications, or you could inadvertently transfer ownership or control of the business into the wrong hands. We can help with services including:

  • Establishment of a range of corporate structures including all necessary regulatory and corporate governance documentation;
  • Advice on existing corporate structures and any ongoing compliance issues;
  • Corporate Restructuring.
