Insolvency & Restructuring Lawyers

The Insolvency and Restructuring team of CMS Rui Pena & Arnaut has a very practical approach to insolvency judicial and extrajudicial phenomena. Insolvency and restructuring are for us not the end, but the starting of something. We have a team with a wide experience in this area, who does well know the process and who looks for the solutions that better serve our clients’ needs.

The follow-up we assure is, in several cases, complemented with the recourse to other areas developed at CMS Rui Pena & Arnaut referring to the issue in question, with the purpose of providing a solution adequate to each real case, thereby contemplating all rationale of our clients’ economical activity.

We are particularly capable to assist our clients in:

  • Extrajudicial restructuring and renegotiations of debts or within the ambit of a special conciliation procedure by IAPMEI
  • Legal assistance in insolvency judicial proceedings, including the assistance in the draft of recovery plans and recourse to protective orders in insolvency
  • Legal representation of multi creditors
  • Participation and attendance in creditors’ committees
  • Acquisition and management of distressed assets and non performing loans
  • Advice in cross-border insolvencies, notably in regard to the resolution of businesses by the insolvency administrator
