It services a global client base focussing on financial institutions and clients with an international perspective. Our global restructuring and insolvency group acts for corporates, creditors, regulators and insolvency practitioners on a broad range of restructuring, refinancing and advisory work and formal insolvency assignments across the insolvency spectrum. We specialise in complex transactions, and our work is often cross-border.
Our aim is to provide a full range of business legal services wherever our clients may need them. For many of our clients the world is a single marketplace, so we structure our legal services in the same way, offering a combination of local and international expertise from our network of offices.
We have built up a reputation for acting at the cutting edge of the legal profession, solving complex problems and delivering a number of legal firsts. The past 12 months have been no exception, we have led on many groundbreaking deals acting for corporates, creditors, regulators, borrowers, lenders and insolvency practitioners on a broad range of advisory and restructuring work.
We also advise a wide range of non-bank investors and funds on a variety of transactions (as highlighted further below) and provide regulatory, legal compliance and tax advice on the establishment, listing and operation of funds. Our specialist team comprises lawyers from a range of disciplines across a number of offices, so we can help ACP clients however and wherever they need our support.
Our recent experience includes acting for ACPs on new money, special situations and restructurings. 2013 has been a year of schemes with the technology being pushed to the next level. The team has advised senior lenders/co-coms on ETG, Biffa, Primacom and Travelodge. The last three of these involved complex intercreditor dynamics. Travelodge was also notable as involving complex inter-conditional schemes of arrangement and a company voluntary arrangement. We have also advised sponsors on high profile deals, including NCP and Estro. In the latter, two schemes of arrangement were prepared in tandem with a consensual deal.
We have continued to consolidate our position as a market leader for technically complex, often multi-jurisdictional transactions. Particular highlights for us include advising: Bulgarian Telecommunications Company AD, Deutsche Annington, Metrovacesa, La Seda de Barcelona and Pfleiderer.
