Restructuring and insolvency
Experience from involvement on all sides of the table
We assist banks and financial institutions, bond holders, guarantors and other creditors in relation to the establishment of security interests and in restructuring situations. We also assist borrowers in financial distress. In addition, we have lawyers who have acted as trustees of a number of large and complex estates in bankruptcy, and lawyers who have served as management-for-hire of companies in restructuring situations. We therefore possess the expertise and experience to understand and analyse the interests and positions of the various parties involved in restructurings and insolvencies.
