Insolvency

We are Stibbe Insolvency specalists

Our insolvency service consists of both advisory work as well as representing clients in legal proceedings – supporting them all the way.

Insolvency

Companies experiencing financial difficulties, as well as creditors facing such companies, need legal advisers with the practical legal skills to increase their chances of achieving the best possible outcome.

Advising debtors, creditors and also acting for buyers of businesses in financial distress, our specialists have the expertise necessary to handle all aspects of insolvency issues.

We advise on many domestic and international matters including bankruptcy and judicial reorganisation, enforcement of (un)secured rights, debt rescheduling, workouts, risk assessing, bond restructurings and dispute resolution. We have also acted as administrator in some of the highest-profile bankruptcies in recent years.

Our interdisciplinary service combines the expertise of our corporate, finance, tax and labour practice groups. Such a coordinated approach ensures every case is dealt with as efficiently as possible.
