Restructuring & Insolvency

Our Restructuring & Insolvency practice is one of the largest in the region and we’re proud of our deep knowledge and expertise. Our lawyers are both technical and commercial and we’ve been recognised at the highest level by the leading directories and commentators for some time now.

Our experience covers the whole range of restructuring and insolvency matters, including contingency planning, turnaround advisory work, lender advice, directors’ duties advice, distressed M&A, formal insolvencies (corporate and personal) and contentious insolvency work.

Any individual or company, no matter how well managed, may experience financial difficulties of their own or of a counterpart, but we can help. Our Team  has experience of helping clients navigate these issues. Our broad client base includes UK clearing banks, alternative lenders, private equity, debt funds, trustees, senior executives, shareholders, creditors and charities amongst others.

We also have strong relationships with various professional advisers operating in this market, including national and regional insolvency practitioners, turnaround directors, restructuring advisory firms, surveyors and fixed charge receivers. This means we have an understanding of the wide-ranging issues that will affect you and your stakeholders in restructuring and insolvency scenarios and our experience means we can provide tailored and effective advice.

A significant amount of our work also has an overseas element, either advising clients based overseas or in relation to matters involving cross border elements.

Our core team works closely with the firm’s other market-leading practice areas where necessary, including banking & finance, corporate, pensions, real estate, regulatory & compliance, dispute resolution, intellectual property, trade marks & designs and employment & immigration.
