International Restructuring Tools: Navigating Restructuring with the new UK Restructuring Plan

Insights / / International Restructuring Tools: Navigating Restructuring with the new UK Restructuring Plan

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought considerable financial challenges to companies across a broad range of industry sectors including the maritime sector and, in particular, the cruise, ferry and offshore sectors.

Distressed companies will need to consider their restructuring options early in order to maximize value for their stakeholders and avoid the spectre of insolvency. The UK has a very effective restructuring toolkit that can assist both non-UK as well as UK companies. In particular, the recent addition of a supercharged Scheme of Arrangement process — the so-called new Restructuring Plan — introduced under the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, is expected to be a game-changer that will sit alongside the English Scheme of Arrangement and the US Chapter 11 as one of the international restructuring tools of choice.

“The solicitors who have handled our employment related issues are of the highest quality in terms of their specialist area of expertise, their professionalism and their approach to us as clients and as people. Special mention has to be made of Laura Livingstone. Laura became a key member of our team and felt more like a colleague than an external adviser – a colleague you could rely upon. Laura’s attention to detail, professionalism and responsiveness was second to none. Laura has come to know and understand us as individuals and this has enabled her to personalise her advice and even sometimes to preempt our future requirements. We have a very special and extremely valuable relationship with her and the firm.”
