We manage all aspects of insolvency worldwide, specialising in complex, multi-jurisdictional insolvencies involving competing creditor claims across the capital structure, handling novel issues from diverse groups.
Our advice spans all aspects of contentious insolvency work:

- assessing risk for restructuring proposals
- defending corporate restructuring and reorganisations
Our team seamlessly combines expertise in both the contentious and non-contentious aspects of complex restructurings. We work closely with our renowned, market leading restructuring and insolvency group, which advises on the largest and most complex restructurings, and other practice areas such as corporate, employment, pensions, tax, environmental, regulatory and capital markets. We pride ourselves on providing holistic, commercial and pioneering solutions for our clients, as well as successful outcomes.
