Corporate Recovery & Restructuring

Corporate Recovery & Restructuring

We are about resolution

Our highly experienced team of insolvency lawyers give you practical and timely advice on corporate recovery and restructuring at what is a critical time for most businesses.

Perhaps your business is having problems coping with its liabilities or recovering money from its debtors? Maybe stresses are showing between colleagues because of low profitability and constant fire fighting? It might simply be that you are worried about your personal liability and responsibilities? Whatever your reason, our lawyers can help you work out a way forward.

Our lawyers advise company directors, partners and other stakeholders on potential strategies and risk management options. We can introduce you to new sources of finance, advise on debt restructuring, and investigate forms of re-financing. We can also implement solvent restructurings, including reductions of capital and share buy-backs.

If refinancing options are not available, there are often formal and informal insolvency processes that can be employed, including administrations, receiverships, company voluntary arrangements and liquidations for companies and LLPs, and, for sole traders and partnerships, individual or partnership voluntary arrangements and administrations.

Where appropriate we will introduce you to, and work closely with, other professionals including insolvency practitioners, to make sure that you receive the best advice.
