Protecting or improving the position of particular stakeholders

Companies may have multiple forms of capital, including different classes of ordinary shares, preference shares, options, warrants, mezzanine funding and senior debt. In some cases, management teams or other stakeholders may have special rights through ratchet and similar mechanisms.

There will be times when the interests of the holders of each capital class are not aligned and stakeholders need advice to help them protect or improve their position. In these cases, Corbett Keeling represents the members of one class or one shareholder in order to achieve the best possible result for them.
