          Business Restructuring

          Understanding the fundamentals needed to achieve the turnaround of a troubled business and maximise recovery for all stakeholders is essential to protect value, whether that means its brand, reputation, intellectual property or other tangible assets.

          Whether you’re a bank or other lending institution, a private equity company, investment fund, creditor, retailer, healthcare supplier, charity, commercial organisation or a restructuring expert, our specialist business restructuring team advises on all issues and disputes around the restructuring of companies, schemes of arrangements, company voluntary arrangements as well as formal insolvency work, involving administrations, receiverships, liquidations and bankruptcies.

          "Their strengths are the quality of work and technical knowledge."

          In many situations, we begin our assignments by advising directors on their obligations and duties through to restructuring debts of companies in ways that are innovative, realistic and achievable.

          Both in the UK and Europe, our talented team uses its understanding of commercial needs across the sectors to take a decisive, innovative, collaborative approach.
