Restructuring & recovery
Difficult situations such as insolvency, restructuring and recovery call upon the very best of our experience and coolness under fire. Time is nearly always at a premium; and in this field more than many, our clients measure our success more by the quality and commerciality of our professional judgment than the number of decisions made.
Our lawyers act for creditors, debtors, lenders and we even represent our clients in creditors’ committees. The nature of today’s economy and insolvency law leads us to handle a wide variety of cases. Whether your issue is a formal or informal procedure, we can help.
Formal insolvency procedures tend to involve the courts. We handle all the main variants, including traditional administration, more recently “pre-packs” and also receivership, liquidation, voluntary arrangements and bankruptcy.
Less formally, our work covers reconstruction and re-organisation, debt restructuring and distressed finance. Many such situations require a very rapid response, for example in cases of proposed distressed asset or corporate acquisitions, where a focussed due diligence review can be paramount to your management.
We work closely with and even advise Licensed Insolvency Practitioners (LIPs) in appropriate cases, but we do not take appointments as LIPs.
