Restructuring & Insolvency law deals with legal frameworks governing the financial distress and insolvency of individuals, companies, and other entities. It encompasses a range of legal mechanisms aimed at facilitating the reorganisation, recovery, or winding up of financially troubled entities.

The primary objective of restructuring is to revive and rehabilitate financially distressed entities, enabling them to regain solvency and continue their operations. This may involve negotiating debt restructuring plans, refinancing arrangements, or implementing management and operational changes. The goal is to maximise the value of the entity and protect the interests of all stakeholders involved, including creditors, shareholders, and employees.

Insolvency, on the other hand, involves the situation where an entity’s liabilities exceed its assets and it is unable to meet its financial obligations. In such cases, insolvency proceedings are initiated to orderly liquidate the entity’s assets and distribute them among its creditors.

Restructuring & Insolvency law aims to strike a balance between the interests of debtors and creditors, providing a legal framework for the resolution of financial distress in an equitable and efficient manner. It typically encompasses statutory provisions, court procedures, and contractual arrangements that guide the conduct of stakeholders during restructuring and insolvency processes. We work with clients including banks, private equity funds, hedge funds, corporations, boards of directors, and insolvency practitioners.
