Restructuring & Insolvency lawyers

In coping with the impact of financial distress, stakeholders require pragmatic advice that achieves the best outcome in difficult situations.

We have a well-established reputation for advising all types of stakeholders in financially distressed situations including debtors, lenders, insolvency practitioners, boards of directors, buyers and sellers of distressed debt, and pension trustees.  This enables us to understand your position and achieve your objectives.

We have an extensive international presence to meet the increasingly international demands of restructuring. We also have particular strength in sectors such as energy, pensions, hotels and leisure, commercial real estate, professional services, investment and financial services that sets us apart from our competitors.

With more offices in Europe than any other law firm, we have an unrivalled presence which, together with our offices in the Middle East, South America and the Far East, enables us to co-ordinate complex cross-border assignments. The strength of our international network enables us to offer a fast and consistent service.

We have a dedicated restructuring and insolvency team in the UK providing English and Scots law advice. While the majority are located in London, our team also operates from our Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices, providing clients with the flexibility to have a team resourced from outside the City.
