The business of a client in financial distress can involve the laws of multiple jurisdictions. Armed with deep experience in diverse practice areas and industries, our lawyers collaborate on creative, nuanced solutions and locally based approaches to restructuring issues around the world.
Insolvency & Restructuring
While recent legislation has improved commercial restructuring options, legal procedures and requirements for implementing a successful reorganization have become significantly more complex.
Our restructuring experts provide legal assistance to both the creditor-side, such as companies, funds and sponsors, banks, and mezzanine lenders, as well as the debtor-side, including insolvency, corporate and tax matters and the acquisition of distressed companies.
We’ve earned worldwide recognition for defending creditors’ rights. Our team has represented official committees and ad hoc groups of creditors in most of the high-profile reorganization proceedings and out-of-court restructurings.
Companies in financial distress choose us as their restructuring counsel because of our broad financial capabilities and our deep commitment to value creation. We represent companies and boards of directors, including special or other board committees, in a variety of industries and jurisdictions, as they navigate financial crises, in restructurings and other insolvency proceedings. Our Cross-Border and International Insolvency specialists are leaders in company administration.
Insolvency can be complex, time consuming and emotional for shareholders. Our corporate insolvency lawyers appreciate this and will make the process as painless as possible.
