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.


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.
