Restructuring & Insolvency

Our team advises insolvency practitioners, corporates, boards of directors, lenders, investors, business purchasers and individuals in respect of all issues that can arise as a result of financial pressure and distress. We are renowned for our expertise and experience.

Specialist restructuring & insolvency lawyers

We are a national team of specialist restructuring & insolvency lawyers, renowned for our expertise and experience.

Our team advises insolvency practitioners, corporates, boards of directors, lenders, investors, business purchasers and individuals in respect of all issues that can arise as a result of financial pressure and distress.

We assist affected parties in relation to restructurings, reorganisations, solvent and insolvent liquidations, administrations, voluntary arrangements and receiverships. Our restructuring and insolvency experts work to achieve a solvent solution where possible and will collaborate with all stakeholders to achieve the optimum outcome.

The reasons behind financial distress are often far reaching – a true understanding is a necessity. Our pragmatic restructuring lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of many different areas. This means that all potential issues can be considered and assessed before the right solution is put forward.

Acting for insolvency officer holders

We are highly experienced in all types of transactional avoidance claims, acting on behalf of office holders that arise from both corporate and individual insolvencies.

Also, we draw upon expertise in other areas such as real estate, employment, intellectual property, environmental and tax to assist in both contentious and non-contentious matters.

Sector expertise

We have experience in a wide range of sectors including media, technology, engineering, construction, manufacturing, leisure and hospitality, retail, and transport.

In addition to advising private entities, we have assisted public sector bodies in large scale and high profile restructurings. Our team prides itself on thinking outside the box and coming up with creative solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

Our accreditations

We are celebrating another year of accreditations and rankings.

Worldwide asset tracing & recovery

Our team can assist with worldwide asset tracing and recovery, having set the case law on a number of areas of international co-operation – including representing the first party to obtain interim relief via the United Nations Model law on insolvency (UNCITRAL).

Dedicated creditor services division

We also have a dedicated creditor services division which advises unsecured creditors in relation to their position when one of their customers enters an insolvency process. This has resulted in the wider insolvency team gaining experience of a very wide breadth of different sectors.

Dual qualified experts

Three of our team are dual qualified as insolvency practitioners as well as being lawyers, having successfully passed the Joint Insolvency Examination Board exams.
