Personal and Business Restructure

 

Is your business having problems coping with its liabilities, or recovering money from its debtors?

Are there stresses between colleagues caused by low profitability and the need constantly to fire-fight?

As a company director or partner in a business, are you worried about your personal liability and responsibilities if the business is losing money?

We recognise that in all these situations we are dealing with individuals who have very real personal concerns, and deserve sympathetic and sensitive treatment.

Our highly experienced team of corporate restructuring lawyers will give you practical and timely advice on these issues, tell you about your options and help you work out a recovery plan.

We advise company directors, partners and other stakeholders on the strategies to adopt and risk management options; we can introduce you to new sources of finance, advise on debt restructuring and forms of re-financing; we can implement solvent restructurings, including reductions of capital and share buy-backs.

If the refinancing options are not available, we will describe the formal and informal insolvency processes that can be employed, including administrations, receiverships, company voluntary arrangements and liquidations for companies and LLP’s, and individual or partnership voluntary arrangements or administrations for sole traders and partnerships; where appropriate we will introduce you to, and work closely with, other professionals including insolvency practitioners, to make sure that you receive the best advice.

As an insolvency practitioner, do you want to instruct experienced lawyers who will make your task easier and more cost-effective because they understand what you want to achieve, and the importance of practical action and advice when you are running “against the clock”?
