Sidley advises clients on the development and maintenance of multi-affiliate corporate and limited liability structures. Through the creation of such structures, a business organization or group of affiliated organizations may realign their existing business structure along geographic, operational, or tax lines. This allows the business to achieve greater operating or tax efficiencies, preserve existing assets, and position itself optimally for future growth while enhancing strategic options and opportunities, including potential acquisitions and divestitures. We help our clients create and maintain strategic business structures that facilitate enhancements to shareholder value, as well as provide counseling on the proper maintenance of the optimized business structure, including with respect to new business initiatives, appropriate corporate governance, and adequate treatment of potential liabilities.
Our lawyers have extensive experience across multiple disciplines and a wide range of subject areas pertaining to structural optimization, including restructuring, litigation, tax, M&A, corporate governance, and many other key areas. Working closely with our clients, we develop a multidisciplinary approach to maximize the benefits of our clients’ business structure while managing risk and enabling growth.
