Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency

Dealing with financial distress is often complex, challenging and time critical, and having access to an experienced and specialist legal team which is responsive, commercially minded and quick thinking can make a real difference to the outcome of your situation.

We have the expertise to offer specialist insolvency and restructuring advice and the ability to provide tailored solutions to the complex issues you are facing.

We act for insolvency practitioners, lenders and financial institutions, companies, directors and stakeholders on the full range of contentious and non-contentious insolvency work in multiple jurisdictions. Among the issues we advise on are:

Restructuring and Advisory

  • Restructuring of solvent and insolvent companies
  • Pre-formal insolvency advice and planning
  • Cross-border insolvency and COMI issues
  • Advice on directors’ duties and liabilities concerning distressed or insolvent companies
  • Formal insolvencies, including administrations, liquidations (solvent and insolvent) and bankruptcies
  • Informal insolvencies, such as Company Voluntary Arrangements and Individual Voluntary Arrangements
  • Security reviews on existing or proposed loans
  • Strategic acquisitions of insolvent businesses and assets from insolvency practitioners
  • Advice to investors in distressed or insolvent companies
  • Tenant insolvency and other real estate related insolvency situations
  • LPA and other fixed charge receiverships

Dispute Resolution

  • Litigation and recovery actions
  • Asset tracing
  • Directors’ disqualification proceedings

Should you find yourself at risk of insolvency or entering formal insolvency procedures, you may be subject to investigations that could lead to complex domestic and cross-border litigation. As part of a cross-office and firm wide investigations group, we can help you obtain and resist the types of emergency relief that businesses in trouble often require.

The cost of resolving disputes can be one of the biggest concerns for individuals and businesses and it can determine whether you even consider pursuing a legal claim. We utilise our bespoke litigation funding product, Feesible, to offer you a variety of ways that funding for a claim can be structured and risk can be managed between us.

If you would like to talk to our team about how we can help, we would be happy to discuss your particular concerns and identify the best route forward.
