Restructuring and capital solutions
We have led on some of the biggest and most high-profile cross-border restructurings of recent years.
Our team has a wealth of experience acting for stakeholders involved in corporate restructurings or experiencing financial stress. We help boards of directors to steer corporates through troubled waters, and advise global investment funds, asset managers, banks, bondholders and other lenders on debt and corporate restructurings.
We also work closely with our sector specialists to build a deep understanding of the business and its financial pressure points. The team focuses on implementing sustainable solutions and managing the diversity of stakeholder expectations from start to finish.
We are proud of our reputation for taking a pragmatic and commercial approach to speed up lengthy processes and achieve the best outcome for our clients.
