DT 1773 Mergers and Acquisitions

Thursday 23 Aug 2018, 16.00, London
Tutors: James Perrott, Macfarlanes LLP Adam Campbell, Macfarlanes LLP

With the recent increase in merger, acquisition and restructuring activity in the UK, practitioners are more frequently being asked to advise on the immigration and right to work aspects of corporate transactions.  Where one or more of the entities involved has a sponsor licence, this will often consist of reviewing the current sponsor licence arrangements, advising on the appropriate arrangement post-transaction and then taking the necessary steps to ensure that the appropriate entity is able to continue to employ its sponsored workers.  This may involve either making a notification to the Home Office or submitting an application for a new licence.  If the transaction involves staff transferring between entities, this can also involve right to work issues.

Depending on the complexity of the transaction, practitioners are often required to have a good working knowledge of corporate structures as well as employment law issues.
Practitioners are also frequently required to have an understanding of the types of structures that international companies employ and advise on whether these structures mean that these businesses can transfer their non-EEA overseas employees to the UK under the Tier 2 (Intra Company Transfer) category.

The course will concentrate on the issues which affect Tier 2 sponsor licence holders, although some reference will be made to where the Tier 2 requirements differ from those that apply to Tier 4.
