Is there any guidance at a high level that outlines and describes the possible legal structures of the various types of carve-outs, mergers and acquisitions? ie what is considered an affiliate, a minority owned affiliate, a legal carveout, stand-alone entity, a spin-off etc…. I’m sure this might vary by country but just wondering if someone has seen or done something like this already. I was asked for this recently during a training because legal structure impacts other functions in different ways (ie contracts, fleet etc…) I’m in Canada but I would be interested to see how other countries define these as well.
Yes, the legal structure in each country is somewhat different, at the high level outline and describe the legal structure. From group companies, to branches and subsidiaries. You can find out more at. drive mad.
