Restructuring and insolvency


The strength and resources of our highly rated corporate and finance lawyers enable us to advise on the most complex corporate restructurings and insolvencies in a constantly evolving legal market.

We can mobilise a multidisciplinary team at short notice, comprising corporate, finance and insolvency experts complemented by specialist lawyers in the areas of tax, real estate, litigation and pensions.

Our broad client base includes debtors, secured and unsecured creditors (including financial institutions, mezzanine investors, insurance companies, bondholders and landlords), creditor committees, special opportunity/situation investors, directors/officers and insolvency practitioners. Through working with these clients our lawyers have gained valuable insights into the approaches of key stakeholders across the capital structure, and have developed and delivered innovative and practical solutions.
