Dispute resolution

Restructuring and insolvency disputes

Our Restructuring and Insolvency team provides innovative, solution-based advice to any party which is affected by a dispute in an insolvency process.

Contentious insolvency issues are often complex and fast moving. To achieve the best result possible, it is essential that you receive timely, straightforward advice from experts in the field. We are best placed to provide that advice.

All law firms offer advice. The way in which we provide our advice, and the outcomes we achieve, sets us apart.

Resolving restructuring and insolvency disputes requires different skills to those found in other commercial litigation. Whether you are an Insolvency Practitioner enhancing value to creditors, or a director facing disqualification or civil claims, we will provide you with a bespoke partner-led service. We pride ourselves on our lateral thinking to arrive at innovative solutions.

Our extremely experienced and highly regarded team will guide you through even the most intractable dispute. We offer practical, focused guidance and strategic advice. We do it cost effectively too.

Insolvencies are increasingly borderless. We have an international network of trusted insolvency lawyers who are ready, willing and able to advise in the relevant local jurisdiction.

We act for a wide variety of stakeholders. This enables us to truly understand the intricacies and potential pitfalls inherent in any insolvency related dispute.

Our clients include Insolvency Practitioners who are appointed as office holders, financially distressed companies requiring advice on their options, directors requiring guidance on their duties, responsibilities, and liabilities, creditors seeking to maximise their recovery in an insolvency process, investors wishing to buy distressed assets or to fund distressed businesses, and banks lending to or seeking recovery from distressed companies.

No one wants to be involved in a dispute. We understand this, and we make it our mission to help you to resolve your dispute as quickly and as painlessly as possible. 

The range of services we offer includes advising creditors of financially distressed companies, presenting and defending petitions for winding up and bankruptcy, and dealing with the Official Receiver and Insolvency Practitioners in the investigatory stage of insolvency.

We also advise on claims arising out of the insolvency, for example wrongful trading, preferences and transactions at an undervalue. We act for directors and Insolvency Practitioners on their duties and responsibilities, in relation to disqualification proceedings, as well as, advising foreign office holders on recognition and enforcement of insolvency judgments.

We regularly deal with high-profile insolvencies and are well known as being trusted advisers in this sector. We work with local and international Insolvency Practitioners, lenders and other stakeholders.  We have the knowledge, experience  and expertise to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
