Company restructuring reorganisation & succession

Leading employment solicitors helping you to grow and maximise your business

Wiltshire’s leading employment lawyers - How can Goughs support you?

If as a business you are considering reorganisation or restructuring, the first step is to be clear about your business rationale and why the change is required. In helping a business to develop the rationale it is worth asking the question “What are the desired outcomes from the restructure?”

Goughs can help you address this question. We will draw on our experience as an employer as well as our successful and growing business to ensure our advice is realistic and proportionate for you.

What the law says on business restructuring

“It is important that nothing should be done to impair the ability of employers to reorganise their workforce and their terms and conditions of work so as to improve efficiency.”

Lord Denning

Courts and Tribunals have long recognised the rights and needs of a business to reorganise and restructure. Such reorganisation could include a reduction in staff, changes to terms and conditions, or perhaps a change in the way an item is produced. If an employee refuses to go along with a business reorganisation, then in certain circumstances, an employee can be fairly dismissed.
