Restructuring/Insolvency Lawyer

Our client is an exceptional international law firm.

Their integrated Restructuring and Insolvency team comprises a global team of lawyers, banking, litigation and finance experts. Collectively, they possess the in-depth knowledge and expertise to work with any business facing restructuring, insolvency or contentious issues. Their tailored advice covers the whole spectrum of corporate distress, from early stages through creditor workouts, debt and equity restructurings, workforce reorganisations, corporate transformation, and formal insolvency administration.

They are particularly well known for advising on extremely complex distressed situations, across multiple jurisdictions, which sometimes include other elements such as special situation financing or litigation. The firm acts for some of the largest and most high profile clients involved in turnaround situations, including debtors, lenders and insolvency practitioners, across many sectors, including energy, oil and gas, mining, marine and shipping, infrastructure and real estate.

You’ll also be encouraged to expand client relationships and to continue to seek opportunities for new work with new and existing clients.
