Restructuring, Turnaround and Recovery

Overview

We offer clients a pro-active and seamless service provided by restructuring and insolvency specialists, who are supported by the firm’s top tier finance and transactional experts. Our team includes experienced attorneys who specialise in high-level and complex restructurings and turnarounds, informal and formal business rescue and recovery proceedings.

We are experienced in managing time and costs, which are often crucial factors in relation to businesses in distress.

We have extensive experience in, inter alia, banking and finance, commercial and corporate, and dispute resolution. Our firm is ranked Tier1/Band1 in both the Legal 500 and Chambers 2014 and 2015 editions.

Over and above technical expertise in the aforementioned areas, we are able to provide strategic advice, drawing on industry-specific knowledge. In addition, we can project manage a restructuring process from inception until finalisation. Our team focuses on reorganising assets and liabilities of companies to ensure sustainability, either by following an informal/consensual process, or alternatively, through a formal restructuring process such as business rescue. Our litigation and insolvency lawyers within the team play a strong cross-over role in assisting with strategy in the context of restructuring, in addition to their expertise in managing complex business rescue, insolvency and litigation proceedings.
