Our Global Restructuring & Insolvency group

Helping companies develop the flexibility to withstand economic headwinds

The market is unpredictable and for organizations facing supply chain disruption, sharp declines in demand or fundamental changes to operating conditions, it is critical to be proactive, consider issues holistically, and maintain the financial flexibility to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. 

Our globally connected team of lateral thinkers and problem-solvers have spent decades executing the most complex domestic and cross-border restructuring and recovery solutions. This experience enables us to address situations understanding both the short-term needs as well as long-term objectives of our clients.

We regularly act for corporate debtors and insolvency practitioners as well as other stakeholders in a debtor’s capital structure, including banks, bondholders and financial sponsors, in addition to funds and companies looking to invest in or acquire a distressed business. Our group is made up of over 100 globally experienced, locally qualified specialists across North America, Asia Pacific, EMEA and Latin America. We routinely call on the expertise of colleagues from a number of legal disciplines including tax, corporate, and disputes, as well as our industry specialists, to deliver comprehensive, coordinated and urgently available cross-border solutions.

Our reach of expertise in these matters is reflected in our Global Restructuring & Insolvency Guide, (available via our website) a tool to help clients understand restructuring and insolvency regime around the world.
