Restructuring and Insolvency

The lawyers in our specialist restructuring and insolvency team will work with you to resolve issues arising from a business in financial distress, including formal insolvency, restructuring and dispute resolution.

Working with insolvency practitioners, businesses, lenders, debtors  and creditors, our insolvency solicitors can advise on all aspects of insolvency, including legal disputes, security enforcement, asset realisations, and business sales.

If formal insolvency is the right route for your business, we can make introductions to trusted insolvency professionals, and provide assistance and advice before that step is taken.

Where formal insolvency options are not the right choice for you, we work to deliver alternative and more effective corporate restructuring outcomes, whether rebuilding, reorganising or demerging.

And we also work extensively with individuals affected by a business’ financial distress, addressing issues around director disqualification, misfeasance, and bankruptcy.

"This practice is of the size where personal service is maintained at a senior level, with enough support to provide an efficient and affordable service. The practice provides services in a wide range of commercial, litigation and specialist areas."
