Insolvency Litigation

A number of reasons could lead businesses to take a turn for the worse; if revenue streams become severely disrupted, your business may be facing financial distress.

During restructuring or insolvency, recourse through the courts is often required – to determine parties’ rights, or to seek creditor protection. We manage all sides of insolvency across many jurisdictions, so whether you’re a creditor, investor, debtor, or officeholder we can help you minimize risk, and get rapid results.

These disputes are not limited by borders and therefore are often complex and demanding. Our global team of insolvency litigation experts are always on hand, to advise your business at the most challenging of times. We work with clients to help them with issues they’re facing today, think about tomorrow and prepare businesses for the future.
