Various causes may lead to the necessity to restructure the corporate and other structures of one’s enterprise or group of companies. Our team is highly experienced in corporate restructuring, both at large, occasionally listed, corporations, and regarding less complicated structures such as a holding company with a working company. We advise our clients both with a view to strategies aiming at the middle or long term, and in hectic restructuring situations that may result from sudden problems requiring immediate action, such as threatening liquidity dips, pressure exerted by banks, discordance between shareholders and other acute matters. If you would so require, together with our team of tax advisers we can also tackle any tax implications involved.
We also regularly advise our clients in respect of that farthest reaching risk, insolvency. These risks may concern either insolvency threats within our client’s own group of companies, or at its important trade partners. Moreover, the issue may be assisting in recognizing and realising the chances that another’s insolvency and even the insolvency of one of one’s own group companies may offer.
Besides that, we often act on behalf of clients in their discussions with and legal proceedings against insolvency liquidators and banks, for instance regarding liability claims or terminations of credit relationships. We never represent banks, nor do we accept appointments as insolvency liquidators. Therefore, we are ideally placed to represent you against such parties, without having to worry whether that would harm our commercial relationship with either the bankruptcy courts or the banks.
As a result of our activities, we moreover see a lot of (re)financing and security liens, ranging from cross-border LMA facilities of many tens of millions, via national bank financing arrangements, through intra-group loans and current accounts, with all corporate and personal liens that may come into view. In these fields we therefore also are well equipped to advise you.

Corporate restructuring and insolvency may not only require your attention, sometimes urgently so, but offer opportunities as well. We would be most obliged to offer our assistance in protecting your interests when changes are required or when situations threaten to deteriorate. We prefer, however, to help you realise the opportunities that arise in these areas. This may not only be in respect of corporate restructuring and corporate recovery as such, but also in respect of financing arrangements.
