Restructuring and Insolvency

Our multi-lingual lawyers advise on the full range of contentious and non-contentious restructuring and insolvency-related matters in Hong Kong. Eversheds Sutherland has extensive experience of insolvencies in various industries, across numerous jurisdictions. Our multi-disciplinary team includes solicitors from our Restructuring, Banking and Finance and Dispute Resolution practices, which ensures that we bring specialist expertise to every aspect of insolvency.

In a market with few large-scale insolvencies, we are the principal advisers on three of the largest matters following the global financial crisis: Lehman Brothers (largest insolvency in history), MF Global (largest insolvency since Lehman Brothers), and Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP (largest ever law firm insolvency).

The strength and growth of our practice was acknowledged at the China Business Law Journal Awards when the team received the Restructuring Law Firm of the Year Award.

As well as structuring and implementing financing arrangements, we also provide legal advice relating to the operation of the business itself. We can add significant value by bringing our sector expertise to restructuring cases.
