Meeting the entrepreneur’s needs: Sir Keith Mills uses Farrers for £350million deal
Farrers is helping to meet commercial, private and philanthropic objectives for a number of top-flight entrepreneurs. Our work for Sir Keith Mills, Chief Executive of London’s 2012 Olympic Team and Britain’s America’s Cup Team, demonstrates just how our depth of expertise and appreciation of the full range of the issues faced by entrepreneurs enables us to provide truly joined-up solutions.
High-value, complex trust litigation
Farrer is acting for Russa Management Limited and others, trustee of Intertraders Trust, in proceedings brought before the Royal Court in Jersey by members of a wealthy Saudi-based family.
Age UK: charity merger
Farrers advised on the highly complex, multi-jurisdictional merger of Help the Aged with Age Concern England, Age Concern Scotland, Age Concern Northern Ireland and Age Concern Cymru to create Age UK, Age Scotland, Age NI and Age Cymru.
Positive resolution from complex disputes: the world’s highest-value divorce
Farrers has been advising offshore trustees in what has been described recently as “the world’s most expensive divorce”. One spouse is challenging the validity of transfers into a trust and also questioning whether they should be valued at the date of transfer, or based on the current value.
UBS/Vestra: the employment case of the year
This year saw the high profile and widely reported UBS/Vestra employment case, involving a dispute over a team move of some 75 staff from UBS to Vestra Wealth LLP, a new start-up operation in the traditional wealth management arena.
The right result: supporting national sports governing bodies
Last year saw the conclusion of the landmark agreement between the RFU and the Guinness Premiership regarding the administration of the professional game in England with the negotiation and finalisation of elite player release contracts for England squad players.
