Restructuring and Insolvency Law

With thousands of companies registering as insolvent in the UK each year, unfortunately insolvency is the destiny of many businesses, particularly in tough economic times.

On the bright side, financial difficulties do not always have to lead to insolvency.

There are many options available to a struggling business and our restructuring and insolvency lawyers will work with you to find the right solution.

This may mean renegotiating supplier agreements, negotiating repayment schedules for debts, corporate restructuring or liaising with insolvency practitioners to consider informal and formal restructuring and insolvency law procedures that may allow continuation of trade. Whatever the case, our office in the City of London will provide sound advice and reassurance.

If the insolvency route is the most appropriate course of action you will need to understand the different types of insolvency procedure. The route you follow will depend on a number of variables and will be dependent on the structure of the business and the position of creditors.

We can talk you through all the available options and make sure you take the best decisions for your commercial future.
