    Corporate Restructuring & Recovery Legal Services

Dealing with financial distress is often complex, challenging and time critical.

Having access to the assistance of an experienced team of specialists can make a real difference to the outcome of your situation. We currently act for a wide range of lenders and financial institutions, companies, directors, insolvency professionals and stakeholders as well as individuals.

It is important you understand the various options available and we can offer pragmatic and commercially-driven solutions to the legal problems you face; both domestically and internationally. We have in-depth knowledge of cross border insolvency processes and jurisdictions and can advise on how best to manage the situation, which is increasingly important as businesses look to expand their horizons.

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 alternative ways of funding claims, structured so 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.
