Deborah Gregory


Deborah Gregory
English, French
Practice Group

Deborah is a seasoned partner with over 30 years' experience advising stakeholders on domestic and cross-border corporate restructuring and insolvency transactions.  

Based in London, she has worked on transactions as varied as the administration of the Queen's hat maker and of a large retail group,  the pre-packaged administration of an ABS structure (which included a law firm) and of a company which provided fire engines to the London fire brigade to the restructuring of a multi-national metal coating group.  Deborah has experience of advising all levels in a restructuring transaction – from the senior creditors through to the equity sponsor – and this knowledge of the technical and commercial issues facing stakeholders in any restructuring transaction allows her to advise her clients on the best way of achieving the desired outcome. 

Deborah is one of the few practitioners experienced in advising insolvency practitioners not only where insolvency is used as part of a pre-planned restructuring process but also free-fall and trading insolvencies.

Sources praise her quick thinking and legal acumen, as well as recognizing her valuable contribution in tense negotiations.
