You, Restructuring & Insolvency
& Ince, in any case
Our team provides advice on all matters related to distressed situations, corporate governance, insolvency and bankruptcy. We represent all parties who are involved in a financial distress situation including debtors, lenders, unsecured creditors, boards of directors, shareholders and new investors. We work with clients to understand their goals, strategies and tactics. We work in highly charged situations to develop tailored resolutions for our clients.
At some point in the corporate life cycle a client or its counterparties may be experiencing some form of financial distress. Spotted early enough, we can help anticipate liquidity issues and focus on stabilising current performance. If that is not possible we can advise on rescuing the business and maximising value for relevant stakeholders. We have extensive experience of working on highly complex engagements across multiple jurisdictions and deploying innovative restructuring solutions to capture value.
This may be through a negotiated solution or using appropriate restructuring tools to ensure an expedited cost effective restructuring process, whether that be a scheme of arrangement, a company voluntary arrangement, a pre-packaged administration, a foreign restructuring process or some combination of these different restructuring tools.
Where the company/LLP/partnership cannot be saved we work with them and their board of directors/members/partners to put them into some form of insolvency procedure such as administration, liquidation or partnership voluntary arrangement. We assist individuals before and through the bankruptcy procedure or seeking an individual voluntary arrangement with their creditors.
We also act for insolvency practitioners in dealing with the insolvent estates and assist in identifying taking possession of and realisation of assets for distribution to creditors.
