Insolvency & Restructuring Advice

Our expert insolvency lawyers advise clients from cradle to grave. This begins with looking at the implications or risks of insolvency law when devising corporate vehicles or holding structures, suggesting alternative structures, advising on the giving and taking of security through to advice on orderly wind downs, insolvency processes and shareholder disputes.

We advise clients on their rights and obligations with respect to insolvent entities and assist in minimising the impact of other parties’ insolvency on them. We advise company directors throughout the life cycle of a company in respect of their duties to the company, members and creditors.

Our experienced team provides reviews of security held by lenders; advises lenders, corporate and individual clients and creditors on the options for placing either themselves or a third party into a formal or informal insolvency process (such as a CVA);  advises insolvency practitioners on the validity of their appointments (and the nature and extent of their duties and powers); and drafts and negotiates sale agreements for administrators and purchasers of distressed assets or companies.

With our international experience we also advise on cross border and jurisdictional issues.
