Our Restructuring and Insolvency team is made up of more than 130 lawyers specialising in restructuring across 42 offices globally.
With such an extensive and dedicated team, we advise on the largest and most complex restructurings, and pride ourselves on providing pioneering solutions as well as real commercial results. We specialise in cross-border restructurings and insolvencies, utilising the full range of international options including U.S. Chapter 11 reorganisations, UK schemes of arrangement, pre-packaged sales and debt for equity swaps.
Our expertise covers advice on contingency planning, insolvency filing requirements, debt restructuring, distressed financing and reschedulings, distressed acquisitions/sales, credit bidding, formal insolvency proceedings, out-of-court restructurings and refinancings and distressed debt trading. We advise lenders and investors at all levels of the capital structure as well as corporates/directors, central banks, insolvency officeholders/trustees and government institutions.
We work closely with specialists in related practice areas including finance, corporate, real estate, employment, pensions, tax, environment, regulatory, capital markets and litigation to provide a seamless and integrated service.
