Restructuring and Insolvency

Start of main content

Our Restructuring & Insolvency Department consists of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who render legal advice to financially-distressed multinational groups and corporations.

The Department advises in corporate restructuring procedures, drawing up feasibility plans for submission to financial institutions and creditors, and implementing these plans for an optimal financial and asset position.

As part of our services we handle national and international insolvencies and extrajudicial restructurings, negotiating and formalizing refinancing agreements. We also assist creditors by conducting reviews of debtors' solvency, advising in contractual arrangements, and obtaining security for debts.

Our Restructuring & Insolvency team takes part in the analysis and prevention of conducts that may result in corporate, tax and/or criminal liability, and can defend de facto and formally-appointed corporate directors in contentious matters.
