Navigating situations involving financial distress such as debt restructurings and insolvency cases can be extremely challenging, both commercially and personally. The legal considerations are technical, so we recognise that there is a need for pragmatism, creativity, and at all times common sense. We are a team of collaborative, highly experienced specialists, recognised for our dynamic and progressive approach.
Our restructuring team is well known and regarded for representing large corporate borrowers as lead counsel in complex debt restructurings, particularly in South East Asia. As borrower’s counsel, we regularly act opposite international banks and funds, with a singular focus on achieving the borrower’s goals in the restructuring, which we pursue vigorously in order to protect their interests. We are typically called upon by our clients to restructure all of their debts simultaneously, including syndicated bank loans and international bonds.
We also focus on disputes that arise from financial distress. Our lawyers form part of one of the largest litigation teams in London and they are familiar with running complex commercial disputes and fraud cases, often with an international dimension.
We have a depth of experience providing insolvency advice to individuals, creditors and the insolvency practitioner community, enabling us to see disputes from all sides and form our strategies accordingly.
We think around your problem to propose solutions that other insolvency lawyers may not consider. In addition to our injunctive expertise, we can call on the experience our asset recovery, cyber, white collar crime and other specialist colleagues to build a solution that is creative and tailored to your needs. We frequently use freezing orders, search and seize orders and disclosure orders to help you achieve your objectives. Our work is underpinned by our in-house investigatory and eDiscovery capabilities.
We are not constrained by commercial ties to large institutional clients; Mishcon de Reya is one of the largest independent firms able to act against financial institutions and professionals.
Matters of financial distress can be complex and stressful. We make your problem our own and we don’t rest until it’s resolved.
