Having a set of advisors that is aligned with and understands your business is often the difference between the success and failure of a corporate transaction.
We offer a seamless, integrated service. As a dedicated business unit within KPMG, we operate as a member of the KPMG team delivering a combined solution. This involves us working in a closely coordinated way with all other business units in the firm. Our preference is to agree a detailed scope of work and fee in advance with the client. Clients therefore have greater control and certainty over the manner of delivery, timing and costs of individual projects.
Our extensive knowledge of company law, combined with the expertise of KPMG Tax, means we can offer unrivalled capability to execute complex group restructuring and reorganisations both domestically and internationally.
We can advise on and implement restructurings and workouts, refinancing, acquisition financing, real estate financing and other loan financing both domestically and internationally.
We can draft and review Shareholders’ Agreements, Share Purchase Agreements, Asset Sale Agreements and most major commercial contracts that a company may wish to enter into. We can also advise on shareholder rights and the implementation of share option schemes for employees and senior management.
Our services include proving advice on regulatory and supervisory issues for banks, other regulated financial institutions and other regulated entities. We can advise, combined with the expertise of KPMG Regulatory, on compliance and governance issues for regulated entities.
Our services cover the range of employment law issues from contract drafting, through advice on HR issues, to representation before employment rights bodies such as the Labour Court.
