Restructuring of companies

LTO assists its clients in all types of restructuring operations, such as sales, acquisitions, creation of holding companies, spin-offs, demergers, mergers and others. In the context of these transactions, the firm can be called upon to perform legal audits, draft audit reports, negotiate partner/shareholder agreements, manage the exit of minority shareholders or the entry of new shareholders in the context of fund raising.

The firm also participates in the sale of businesses as going concern or individual assets of a business. In the context of mergers between several groups or companies of different nationalities, the firm sets up, drafts and negotiates joint venture agreements.

In the context of these operations and beyond:

– LTO has created companies, associations, foundations or groups of companies for its clients, including the drafting and accomplishment of formalities for their registration, incorporation and implementation.

– LTO also assists its clients in the drafting of their company’s day-to-day operations, such as the appointment of directors, approval of accounts, implementation of delegations of authority, capital increases and decreases.

The diversity of the structures for which LTO acts as a consultant (public or private, national or multinational companies, industrial or financial institutions) is as wide as the diversity of the sectors in which these structures operate (automotive, real estate, pharmaceutical, hotel/restaurant, IT, energy).

The LTO methodology in 3 steps for the treatment of a file:

  1. A remote or physical meeting to discuss with you the project you are considering or the situation you are encountering
  2. An email providing you with an engagement letter summarizing the identified legal issues and comprising our fee proposal
  3. The accomplishment of the mission entrusted


Fees adapted to each situation

The fees are the financial counterpart of the missions accomplished by lawyers. They are established in full transparency according to the nature and the scope of the mission entrusted by the client and accepted by the law firm.

Depending on the type of case handled by LTO, the fees may be set either on an hourly rate basis (the hourly rate in force which is communicated to the client beforehand), or on a flat rate basis (calculated on the base of the time the law firm expect to spend and taking into consideration the applicable hourly rate). Finally, part of the fees may be calculated on the base of the result obtained (success fee). Under French law, lawyers are not allowed to be paid solely on the base such fees.
