Our restructuring and insolvency practice handles a wide variety of instructions for a diverse client base encompassing creditors, debtors, accountancy firms, insolvency practitioners and turnaround professionals. We believe our offering differentiates us in the following ways:
Breadth of expertise: In tune with the wide-ranging requirements of our varied client base, we handle high-profile company-side work for creditors and debtors as well as other stakeholders. We undertake the full range of stressed and distressed advisory work including advising on operational and financial restructuring and turnaround. Our expertise covers the entire restructuring toolkit ranging from schemes of arrangement through to administrations, company voluntary arrangements, receiverships and liquidations.
Strong relationships among financial sector clients and turnaround professionals: We have very strong relationships with a number of major banks dealing with distressed situations. In addition to handling complex mandates for these clients, our restructuring team provides regular training to the “high risk” groups at leading banks. We also work very closely with leading restructuring accountants including PwC, KPMG, Deloitte, AlixPartners, FRP Advisory, Grant Thornton and BDO and leading turnaround professionals. These relationships mean we are often sought out at a very early stage by investors and corporates who want to avoid insolvency and create equity value.
Complex cross-border work: We have significant experience in high profile cross-border mandates. Our cross-border expertise has grown partly due to our ability to leverage our flourishing international office network, which now includes restructuring specialists in our European practice. Our network of UK offices enables us to move work around to where it can be handled with the greatest efficiency.
Sector expertise: We have considerable expertise in a range of key areas that are presently encountering difficulties, such as the retail, financial services, digital business, energy & renewables, real estate & infrastructure, and leisure & hospitality sectors.
