Corporate Law

Fundamental transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, schemes of arrangement and disposals of all or the majority of the assets or undertaking of a company, are strictly regulated and subject to onerous requirements imposed by the Companies Act of 2008. Understanding these requirements and ensuring proper compliance throughout the transaction, means the difference between a valid or invalid transaction and one that limits or inflates costs.

We have the experience and expertise to support companies at every stage of a fundamental transaction to ensure corporate compliance with the applicable legislation and regulations. Our experience includes advising our both local and international clients how best to structure and implement these transactions. Our advice is tailored to each client depending on the relevant industry and the company's future direction.

Our legal services relating to corporate and commercial transactions and advisory work include:

  • black economic empowerment transactions;
  • corporate governance;
  • due diligence investigations
  • joint ventures and strategic alliances;
  • management and leverage buyouts;
  • takeovers, mergers and acquisitions (public and private);
  • private equity and venture capital;
  • restructurings, demergers and spin-offs;
  • share incentive schemes.
