Restructuring

We are Stibbe Restructuring specialists

With a network of global relationships, we are able to advise both domestic and international clients on their strategic restructuring objectives around the world.

Restructuring

We work closely with all parties to identify opportunities and risks, delivering restructuring strategies to achieve our clients’ commercial goals.

A large part of our work is assisting financial institutions and lenders’ syndicates in recovering and safeguarding their rights under loan agreements, granted to companies in distress.

Furthermore, our specialists focus on enhancing a client’s collateral while paying attention to potential lenders’ liabilities, side-effects of certain insolvency proceedings (e.g. claw back provisions) and the tax, social security and criminal law aspects of the restructuring process.

A key part of our service is the close integration between our branches around the world. When combined with our long-standing relationships with law firms in other jurisdictions, our cross-border strength maximises the benefits of creditor protection in each jurisdiction.

Collaboration with our corporate finance and litigation teams ensure every case is handled in the most efficient and effective way.

De rechtspositie van financiële instellingen ten aanzien van richtsnoeren en aanbevelingen van European Supervisory Authorities: Europese pseudowetgeving?

Articles - De ESA’s hebben in de praktijk een belangrijke functie binnen het Europese toezichtsmechanisme. Ze spelen een rol bij de totstandkoming van technische reguleringsnormen en uitvoeringsnormen en zij stellen richtsnoeren en aanbevelingen vast teneinde de gemeenschappelijke, uniforme en consistente toepassing van het Unierecht te verzekeren. Deze richtsnoeren en aanbevelingen worden wel geschaard onder de noemer ‘soft law’ en zijn niet juridisch bindend. Toch sorteren zij in de praktijk effecten die lijken op de effecten die ‘bindend recht’ sorteert.

Ten opzichte van de Algemene Bankvoorwaarden uit 2009, lijkt er op het eerste gezicht inhoudelijk gezien geen sprake van een revolutionaire verandering. Toch is het goed er even bij stil te staan en enige aspecten te belichten die tot nu toe in mijn ogen in de literatuur onderbelicht zijn gebleven, met name in de toepassing van deze voorwaarden op kredietrelaties met niet-consumenten.
