Insolvency and Bankruptcy

Insolvency law is a complex area, requiring lawyers that not only have commercial acumen but are strategic in their thinking. They need to be experienced in the contentious and non-contentious aspects of insolvency, turnarounds, restructuring and ongoing risk management. They also need to be willing to take the time to:

  • understand the big picture
  • identify the key issues
  • develop a realistic strategy that enables you to move forward
