Sharpe Pritchard's corporate team advises public sector and housing clients on a wide range of corporate finance and governance matters.
Team members have acted on a number of amalgamations and mergers, including the South Warwickshire Housing Association merger with Orbit Housing Group (Orbit Heart of England).
The team’s transactional corporate experience extends to company acquisitions and disposals, examples of which include acting for a major not-for-profit health provider on a series of strategic acquisitions, acting for a charitable social enterprise on its acquisition of a flagship sports business in east London, advising a newly-incorporated joint venture company on its acquisition of an offender rehabilitation services business previously operated within the public sector and advising a central government department on certain aspects of the disposal of its employment placing service for disabled people.
In addition, we regularly advise local authorities and other public sector clients on the incorporation of subsidiary companies, whether these are incorporated with a view to undertaking services previously undertaken within the local authority (and therefore take advantage of the Teckal exemption) or whether these are incorporated with a view to trading on a wider basis.
"They're very thorough, consistent and clear, and they have fast turnaround times. We've been absolutely delighted" Client.
