Companies experiencing financial considerations may take the decision to restructure, and in doing so significantly modify the financial and legal structure of their business.
Ireland is by now well-established as a key destination for corporate restructurings. Governed by a blend of statute law and common law, the most important of which being the Companies Act 2014, Ireland offers a range of corporate restructuring and insolvency procedures. Furthermore, Irish processes often feature prominently in cross-border restructurings which require a coordination of processes from multiple jurisdictions. Several recent high-profile cases have illustrated that Irish courts are receptive to and capable of dealing with highly complex restructurings.
Luxembourg is widely considered to be a favourable environment for corporate structures as it offers an extensive network of tax treaties, a wide array of structuring options and a flexible corporate toolbox. The Luxembourg corporate environment is constantly evolving to provide flexibility to corporate structures evidenced by the overhaul of the corporate law in 2016, which adapted the law to match the needs of modern businesses.
