Most restructuring engagements are complex and require a significant amount of creativity, so we work with our clients and their financial professionals to develop strategies that advance their business interests as well as preserve and create value.
We do this by working with all parties to identify opportunities and risks and to deliver innovative strategies to achieve our clients’ goals - and, where and when necessary, we coordinate our expertise with the expertise of other practice groups such as Corporate, Banking, Real Estate, Construction, Employment, Intellectual Property, Disputes, and Tax.
Our lawyers have played key roles in high-profile restructurings and insolvencies in recent times. For example, Andrew Gosnay has helped several chain stores with significant successful debt restructures.
We are also experienced in cross-border insolvency matters (in particular under the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings). Our lawyers are recognised experts in the field of restructurings. They often speak at conferences, and are senior members of organisations including the Loan Market Association, R3: the Association of Business Recovery Professionals, and the Insolvency Lawyers’ Association.
We act for:
- financial institutions
- distressed companies
- insolvency practitioners
- creditors’ committees
- pension trustees
- buyers of troubled companies/assets
- directors of companies in distress
