HOW CAN OUR RESTRUCTURING AND INSOLVENCY LAWYERS HELP YOU?

Receiverships, Judicial Management & Schemes of Arrangments

Our team is regularly engaged by insolvency professionals, creditors and debtors to advise on the best course of action for you in insolvency scenarios. We aim to obtain the best possible outcomes for our clients and guide them through the regimes (applications, coordination and representation) for receiverships, judicial management and schemes of arrangements. For any insolvency-related disputes, we can also act on the behalf of our clients and represent them in court.

Liquidation

In a volatile business environment, companies may be forced to wind up or liquidate. In such circumstances, our team can act decisively to achieve the best legal solution to protect the rights and interests of our clients. We will assist our clients in the liquidation proceedings, clawback claims and work closely with liquidators to ensure that relevant statutory obligations are complied.

Cross-Border Insolvencies

Cross-border insolvencies inherently involve complex multi-jurisdictional issues that include differences in insolvency proceedings and enforcements. Our team is adept in supporting our clients with practical guidance and innovative tactics for negotiation to overcome the intricate legal difficulties with timeliness and confidence.

Debt Restructuring

Our clients can leverage our team’s accounting expertise to work closely with their advisors (auditors and accountants) for deeper insights from both debtors' and creditors' points of view. This allows us to creatively negotiate and deliver cost-effective restructuring solutions such as corporate workouts for businesses in financial distress.

Asset Recovery and Investigation

Our team has substantial experience in advising our clients on asset-tracing and recovery matters. We are capable of utilising a variety of legislative and judicial tools to investigate misappropriation of assets, misrepresentation and white-collar crimes.
