Restructuring and Insolvency Litigation

Our international Restructuring and Insolvency Litigation group specialises in complex, multi-jurisdictional insolvencies involving competing creditor claims from diverse groups.

We act for clients from all parts of the capital structure and our advice spans all aspects of contentious insolvency work, including, the retention of title claims, enforcing security, representing officeholders in numerous and diverse applications for directions, risk assessing restructuring proposals and defending corporate restructuring and reorganisations.

Our team is able to seamlessly combine both the contentious and non-contentious elements involved in complex restructurings, both contentious and non-contentious. We work closely with our top-ranking restructuring and insolvency group and other practice areas such as corporate, employment, pensions, tax, environmental, regulatory and capital markets.
