Solicitors' practice areas


Restructuring and insolvency lawyers are called in when a company, individual or other organisation is in financial difficulties and is facing possible liquidation, administration or bankruptcy. In such situations, restructuring and insolvency lawyers work to advise the organisation’s management and other stakeholders on what to do next, which could be filing for administration or a distressed merger. A restructuring and insolvency lawyer’s work is also to advise organisations that have not yet become insolvent on how to avoid such a situation and formulate contingency plans. In addition, restructuring and insolvency lawyers will also advise an organisation’s creditors where their borrower is facing financial problems.
