Restructuring & Insolvency

“This is a highly experienced, multidisciplinary team made up by lawyers and economists specialised in corporate restructuring and who are regularly involved in insolvency procedures”


The Restructuring & Insolvency Practice benefits from extensive experience in insolvency procedures and, in the past, several of its members have been nominated to act as receivers/administrators by Commercial Judges.


We advice on a wide range of insolvency and pre•insolvency issues, including:

  • Review of the possible implications of a meeting of creditors for contracts maintained by the company.
  • Formalisation of guarantees in compliance with statutory requirements so that they do not fall within the scope of the insolvency estate.
  • Advice on the acquisition of companies or productive units subject to insolvency, articulating the methods to avoid liability.

Pre-insolvency Advice

In the face of threatened insolvency, it is crucial to evaluate the risks for the management body to be held somehow responsible for the insolvency. The members of our Insolvency Practice have become experts in delivering pre•insolvency advice. They are trained to recognise and assess such risks and suggest corrective measures.

We also have a solid experience in banking and creditors refinancing designed to steer clear of insolvency.
