Financial Restructuring and Insolvency


Clients who appoint us on financial restructuring and insolvency matters want a recognized leader in complex cross-border insolvencies and workouts. We offer our clients a substantial and inter-connected team with "on the ground" resources in all key jurisdictions.

We regularly represent multinational corporations in simultaneous proceedings in virtually every corner of the world. Our practice represents clients in all aspects of restructurings, workouts and insolvency matters, including both transactional and litigation matters. We deliver innovative financial solutions for our clients who expect us to understand complex financial products and key market trends, and implement solutions as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our experience of working on "market firsts" is highlighted through our multi-award winning deals.


Unmatched problem solving and strategic thinking

Our experience is unsurpassed. We have a long track record of advising debtor and creditor constituents in all parts of the capital structure. We can tell you not only what we think stakeholders will do, but also what we have actually done on their behalf in similar situations.

Our team of experienced senior lawyers take the lead in the negotiation, implementation and delivery of complex restructuring solutions to get the best outcome for our clients. We have built a reputation for being aggressive and creative on behalf of our diverse clients across the board, not waiting for others to act, but forcing others to react to what we are doing for our clients. We are the go-to team for clients in deep trouble who need a law firm to hit the ground running–and to represent them with passion and tenacity.
