Business Restructuring

There are a number of reasons why businesses look to restructure, from potential insolvency and tax considerations to selling part of the business or moving to a more flexible business model.

Whatever the motivation for restructuring your business, there will come a time when legal matters will need to be taken into consideration to ensure the restructure remains legally compliant.

At Rotheras we work closely with lenders, insolvency practitioners, businesses and directors to gain a thorough understanding of what you want to achieve for your business and help you decide on the most effective structure for your business going forwards.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.
