Insolvency & Restructuring
Our Insolvency & Restructuring team is ideally positioned to advise on all aspects of insolvency, restructuring and corporate recoveries.
With two qualified insolvency practitioners and a team comprising lawyers who have previously worked for insolvency firms and/or as secondees to high-street lenders, the Insolvency and Restructuring team has the experience you need to achieve your objectives.
Our team acts for lenders, insolvency practitioners, creditors, directors and other stakeholders in circumstances where a company or individual is insolvent, experiencing financial difficulties or is the victim of a business critical event such as fraud.
All of those affected have one thing in common – they want quick, proactive and commercial advice. Given our extensive experience and breadth of practice, this is exactly what we do – working together to save businesses, save jobs and maximise recoveries for the benefit of stakeholders.
The team’s core practice includes non-contentious insolvency and restructuring advice; fraud, contentious insolvency and investigations; recoveries for lenders and advice in relation to LPA receiverships; and business litigation.
The team is also supported by experts in the fields of corporate, real estate, finance, employment, pensions and intellectual property – all of whom have experience of insolvency situations and managing financial difficulties.
We advise on:
- Members’ voluntary liquidations (solvent)
- Individual voluntary arrangements
- LPA and Fixed Charge receiverships
- Provisional liquidations
- Fraud and investigations
- Distressed asset acquisition
- Business Litigation
- Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs)
- Schemes of arrangement
