Company reconstructions are a rescue procedure. They are typically used for the financial restructuring of a business which is viable but subject to short-term, cash-flow problems and to aid a variety of mergers or reorganisations of businesses due to the favourable tax treatment of reorganisations. Company reorganisations are not subject to protection from creditors and tend to be executed at speed. 

This procedure can be used to reach a compromise or arrangement with either its creditors or members.

Our restructuring experts use their breadth of experience and knowledge to provide outstanding contingency planning, options reviews, and reconstruction advice. They have extensive experience of working with businesses and their financial stakeholders and advise on the preparation of proposals for the reconstruction; assist the business in the initiation of a reconstruction; advise on legal matters, supporting creditor management and communications; and manage relationships with financial stakeholders. 

Once a reconstruction has received consent and approval, our partners work with the business to control the procedure, with the oversight of the court. The restructuring services we offer include:

  • accelerated mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • balance-sheet restructuring
  • independent reviews
  • cash-flow management
  • turnaround and interim support
  • corporate simplification
