Capital and Counties Properties plc group reorganisation
Mishcon's Corporate and Real Estate Departments advised Capital and Counties Properties plc (Capco) on a complicated group reorganisation. Earlier this year, Capco made a planning application for the redevelopment of the Earls Court and West Kensington Opportunity Area, which has a total estimated value of £8 billion. The reorganisation was undertaken with a view to simplify the Capco group prior to the proposed redevelopment.
Mishcon advised on establishing limited partnership structures, reviewing and reporting on the titles of various properties and advising on the transferring such properties within the Capco group. Ross Bryson led on the corporate side with main assistance from Shantanu Sinha, and Stephen Hughes led on the real estate side with main assistance from Arnaud Montagna and Daniel Ellison.
