Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

The team at Wilson Browne also worked closely with the accountants and tax advisors to the clients concerned to ensure that the transaction was completed smoothly, on time and in the most tax-efficient manner.

The project was led by Andrew Kerr and Guy Zarins, Partner and Solicitor respectively within the Corporate and Commercial law team at Wilson Browne Solicitors.
Andrew Kerr commented:

We are delighted to have advised in this transaction and to have achieved the required de-merger efficiently and within an extremely short timescale. The cross-border nature of some aspects of the transaction presented their own unique challenges, but the knowledge and depth of experience within the team helped enormously in achieving the right outcome for the clients concerned in a timely manner.
