Our Business Restructuring team has a committed and hard-working approach, central to which is a “can do” attitude that means we will always strive to achieve the commercial outcome you desire whilst managing technical elements which can often be challenging.
Proactive and resourceful, we offer what our clients need in what are often trying times. The team advises insolvency and turnaround practitioners, banks and other lenders, boards of directors and debtors across the entire corporate landscape on all aspects of business restructuring and formal insolvency. Increasingly, we work alongside other law firms either on a co-counselling basis or where a larger assignment requires the outsourcing of elements of work, often as a result of conflicts of interests.
Our regular portfolio of assignments includes: a range of restructurings and other distressed scenarios involving highly leveraged private equity-backed buy-out and special purpose property vehicles, entailing debt for equity swaps, intercreditor arrangements, hedging product claims, cross-border and tax mitigation issues; accelerated M&A processes; pre-pack and other administrations; high value property receiverships; complicated liquidations; and contentious insolvency matters, including those with cross-border elements. We are adept at working on transactions requiring solutions to tricky strategic and technical issues.
With a typical restructuring affecting a business in the widest sense, our core team of restructuring lawyers works closely with specialists across Marriott Harrison’s complementary practice areas to provide a fully integrated service, as well as alongside our clients’ in-house team and other advisers and stakeholders.
Members of the team are involved in various industry organisations including R3, INSOL, the Turnaround Management Association, the Insolvency Lawyers’ Association and the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation.
