Restructuring & insolvency

In times of crisis, companies, lenders, investors and other stakeholders facing complex international or domestic restructurings and insolvencies turn to us because of our experience and proven successes in some of the most high-profile restructurings and insolvencies over the last few years.

We have the commercial approach that is needed to adapt to and succeed in these fast-moving and uncertain times.

Clients particularly value our ability to bring in specialists in areas that often prove pivotal in a distressed situation, such as complex finance, real estate, pensions, and tax. With a large international team of lawyers who have excellent reputations in their local markets, we bring the right people together for the job.

We are market leaders for insolvency litigation where we represent both insolvency office-holders and defendants. Our expertise in fraud and asset tracing arising out of insolvency is internationally recognised.

We act for national and international businesses, insolvency administrators and office holders, directors, shareholders, lenders, asset-based lenders, bondholders, creditors, private equity, distressed debt funds, pension scheme trustees and landlords.

Some members of our team in Austria and the Netherlands also act as insolvency trustees.
