Bankruptcy and Insolvency

If you are in a difficult financial position, we will carry out a thorough analysis and guide you through a turnaround, a proposal to your creditors or a filing for bankruptcy. We will work in close collaboration with you and your main advisors to determine the best possible course of action. If a turnaround is possible, we will implement all the necessary measures; otherwise, we will guide you in determining the best possible solution. If you are a creditor or a trustee, we can provide advice and support concerning the various bankruptcy and insolvency laws applicable. In this regard, we can prepare your proof of claim for the meeting of creditors, represent and advise you, and analyze your case in order to determine the type of remedy that will maximize realization proceeds. We can also analyze issues related to such remedies affecting in particular the disposal of property, preferential payments, reviewable transactions, motions to cancel transactions (defrauding creditors of their rights), invitations to tender and asset purchases.
