We helped a c.£50 million private equity owned technology company.
A difference of opinion between the CEO and shareholders after a failed exit event meant a new CEO was needed before the next exit. We assisted the company with the employment and corporate issues surrounding this.
This involved analysing employment documentation and articles of association, as well as advising the Chairman on strategies to minimise financial liabilities to the incumbent CEO under both his employment contract and on his shareholding.
We helped the client avoid a major dispute that had the potential value of £1.5 million.
