Will a redirect affecting listing?


My client has a site which has done very well in the past due to a lot of press coverage. Recently she rebranded the site to a new address so I set up a forwarder on the domain name to go to the new site. Anyhow, she tells me that a lot of people still know the old address and when they type it into google the site no longer comes up and cheeky competitors have nicked our keywords and come up first under that address.

I've created a small subsite to go on that address again with some texts that she has provided with plenty of keywords but my client would like the homepage to automatically redirect to the new site (with a meta refresh). Will the search engines see this and consiquently not rate the site well? I've added a link on the homepage to the new site but she doesn't have a lot of faith in her customers and thinks that they may not click though. If I give the link to the site this post will probably be listed so I'll leave it out for now (made that mistake before).
