Corporate Restructuring and Insolvency

Our partner-led team of insolvency solicitors have considerable experience in this field. We act for a variety of clients nationally and internationally including licensed insolvency practitioners, banks, asset based lenders, businesses and individuals. Our insolvency team is multi-disciplinary and vastly experienced in advising banks, businesses and insolvency practitioners in all aspects of insolvency.

We have been providing legal advice and assistance to insolvency practitioners and financial institutions for over 25 years. We also have the capability to rapidly assemble multi-disciplinary teams as required on a case-by-case basis. This enables us to act both quickly and effectively in cases of all levels of complexity and scale and which comprise legal issues beyond insolvency.

Clients expect technical excellence in what can often be a very precise and exacting area of law. We deliver that excellence and combine it with commercial experience to ensure that the very highest quality and value for money is consistently being delivered, whatever the nature of the transaction.
