We advise insolvency practitioners, banks and other lending institutions, stakeholders, companies, directors and individuals on corporate insolvency-related and bankruptcy issues. We are also experienced in current deal structure in the distressed investment and debt restructuring markets.
Our contentious and non-contentious work includes advising on directors’ duties in the ‘twilight zone’; voidable transactions; company voluntary arrangements (CVAs) and debt restructurings; standstills, work-outs, reorganisations and formal insolvency procedures; administration and other business rescue procedures; closures of complex group liquidations; and acting on sales of businesses by distressed companies or their office-holders.
Our team works with the firm’s corporate, dispute resolution, real estate, financial services and regulatory practices to service clients’ requirements.
