Insolvency and Restructuring Group members act for clients before superior and appellate courts in restructuring, bankruptcy and insolvency procedures. While it is preferable to arrive at consensual resolution of difficult matters, this is not always possible and our Insolvency and Restructuring members are well equipped to represent clients' rights and interests before the courts. Our members have decades of skill in matters like for example sales process hearings; contested bankruptcy, receivership, liquidation and realization procedures; priority matters, classification hearings, sale approval motions; and plan sanction and approval motions. We even have litigation expertise in preference, undervalue, fraudulent conveyance, oppression, alter ego, reviewable transactions, subordination, and more.
Our objective is maximizing and preserving value for major international financial institutions, institutional lenders, asset-based lenders, senior lenders, mezzanine lenders, private equity, distressed investors, turnaround companies, bondholders, indenture trustees, protection funds and court officers. We serve clients involved in financial restructuring, like for instance boards of directors and special committees and others, in issues ranging from loan amendments, out-of-court restructuring, intercreditor arrangements, asset and business acquisitions and sales, plans of arrangement, pre-packaged plans, balance sheet restructuring and operational restructuring through formal proceedings.
Our advice and services comprise the following:
There are several possible variations, in distressed financing situations. It is vital for all parties to have a clear knowledge of the interests, rights, possible tactics and strategy to achieve a successful outcome. Our Insolvency and Restructuring Group works closely together with members of our Financial Services Group, acting for lenders in and out of court, debtor-in-possession, financing arrangements, financial restructuring, forbearance accommodations and arrangements, and exit financing.
Our Insolvency and Restructuring Group works closely along with our Mergers and Acquisitions Group as well as other specialty groups. We offer services in the sale or acquisition of assets or business in distressed cases. Our clients consist of buyers, board of directors, sellers, special committees, institutional investors, lenders providing acquisition financing, buyout funds, and interested stakeholders.
We have also advised our clients in some areas comprising plan-sponsor arrangements, strategic debt acquisitions, fulcrum security issues and rights and value maximizing strategies, methods consisting of the assessment of other counterparty arrangements and risks and the rejection or assignment of executory and other contracts. We have acted on plans of arrangement, sales processes, cross-border sales processes involving the combined use of the courts authorized sales procedures with Bankruptcy Codes sales, stalking-horse bidding processes (after or without a pre-filing sales process) consisting of appropriate auction sales and bidding protections or more conventional style sales processes.
Working along with our Labour and Employment Group, we assist our clients in offering individualized services about both union and non-union cases.
