How can Capsticks help?
- Mergers and acquisitions (M&A)
We have experience of dealing with acquisitions and the sale of businesses across our main sectors, where we have substantial expertise. Our team advises on sale and asset purchases for both buyers and sellers. Recent examples include advising on regulatory aspects of the acquisition of a Harley Street private hospital, advising on the cross-border investment into a company in the medtech sector; and advising a new entrant to the social care market on the acquisition of a care home.
- Corporate finance and capital structure
We advise on all forms of corporate finance and related capital structuring arrangements for corporate providers in the health, care and housing sectors. This includes handling debt and equity issues and capital restructuring, for example on the issue or buy-back of shares and all the associated arrangements.
- Joint ventures
Alongside our commercial experts, we advise on joint venture arrangements including the establishment of special purpose vehicles (SPVs) for particular projects. We provide the full range of services, from constitutional arrangements for the joint venture vehicle, to commercial and real estate support on the associated contractual and property arrangements. We also work closely with our employment team to advise clients in relation to the most efficient employment structures.
- Corporate advisory
Our team advises on corporate compliance matters throughout all stages of your company’s life,—from incorporation (formation), governance and secretarial matters including administration amendments to constitutions, to filings with Companies House or other registrars such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for mutual societies.
We also advise on officer’s and director’s duties and responsibilities across the range of entities in our sectors (from Companies Act organisations to NHS foundation trusts).
