Restructuring and Insolvency

Our dedicated restructuring and insolvency lawyers across our international network of offices have extensive experience acting swiftly to protect the value of businesses, investments and third party claims in single jurisdiction and cross-border restructuring, recovery and insolvency matters involving Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey law.

We are frequently instructed on the planning and implementation of formal insolvency processes involving our jurisdictions, which include both contentious and non-contentious processes and have been involved in a significant number of the major formal insolvency proceedings in recent years.

Our restructuring lawyers have a practical and in-depth understanding of the technical issues that can arise in restructuring situations, whether around merger, acquisition, reorganisation, workout or recapitalisation activities.

Our advice focusses on furthering our clients’ commercial aims; typically preserving the assets of a business or the value of an investment, while identifying and implementing a viable restructuring transaction, exit strategy or litigation plan.

Our teams have wide experience acting in respect of the structuring, acquisition and enforcement of debt. We have advised both borrowers and lenders in respect of security enforcement options including the implementation of strategies to achieve value for the acquirers of non-performing loans.

We recognise that insolvency processes are being employed in an ever more creative manner, whether to assist in the enforcement of judgments and awards, or to preserve assets for the victims of fraud. We continue to advise insolvency appointees, government agencies, judgment creditors and financial institutions in the exercise of their powers in foreign jurisdictions and to enforce their rights throughout the offshore world.
