International Business Reorganisations (IBR)

One team offering global legal advice and integrated solutions, supporting business reorganisations of multinational corporations.

Make your reorganisation efforts more effective and efficient

Business reorganisations tend to tie up a lot of internal resources which could be deployed elsewhere. Our IBR hub in Switzerland takes the strain off our clients by acting as an extension of their legal teams and freeing up busy in-house counsels to focus on core business activities.

We deliver comprehensive legal services proactively anticipating your needs. As a result of the close collaboration between legal specialists in PwC’s global network of over 3,500 lawyers in 90+ jurisdictions, you can rely on us to assist your company whenever it needs global legal support.

Our goal is to make your life easier: one team, one engagement and one single invoice to provide you with comprehensive, cost-effective and efficient global legal solutions.

How we can help

We provide multinational corporations and their subsidiaries across the globe with legal support, local feasibility and legal implementation of corporate transactions. The entire service is centrally managed by our team in Switzerland. Our service offering includes but not limited to:

  • Pre-spin off structurings and carve-out transactions;
  • Post-deal legal integrations;
  • Tax structuring implementations and (cross-border) intra-group corporate day-to-day work (dividend distributions, contributions, nominal capital changes, entity conversions, etc.);
  • Entity rationalisations and simplifications (including incorporations, liquidations, mergers);
  • Alignment of corporate structures to new operating models.

What are the benefits for you?

  • No interruptions to your daily business thanks to our centralised, cross-functional approach to corporate transactions managed by experienced and diverse experts;
  • More time for other value-added activities in core business areas, because our offerings leverage in-house resources;
  • Consistency across jurisdictions throughout the whole transaction;
  • Legally secure transactions throughout all jurisdictions involved, and compliance to mitigate significant risks;
  • Flexible billing options, such as fixed fee arrangements across multiple jurisdictions, under a single engagement letter.

What can you expect from PwC to deliver that others cannot?

Our legal network, being the number one firm with the most extensive legal coverage across the globe, provides seamless and holistic legal solutions at an instant. Depending on your needs, we have the capability and expertise to on-board relevant experts from other disciplines, primarily tax, but also specialists in areas such as transfer pricing, valuation, accounting and other consulting services. For consistent output throughout the project, we align our work across functions on an ongoing basis.

We combine top-notch legal and organisational skills, multidisciplinary capabilities and technology-based solutions, all coordinated centrally. You benefit from cheaper, faster and smarter solutions to your business needs.
