Restructuring

Our Restructuring practice is recognized globally for the quality of its advice in business critical situations. In the Netherlands, clients come back to us because they value our multi-disciplinary approach and the focus we apply to securing the best possible outcomes.

We have a long-standing track record of delivering high profile restructurings for a wide range of stakeholders. These include distressed corporates, creditors, private equity houses, banks and other financial institutions. With Restructuring lawyers across the globe, we can help you in a variety of areas, including:

  • Restructuring and distressed companies - Our primary objective is to work tirelessly with management teams to restructure the business to maintain value and continue trading. In the recent past, we have worked on some of the most high profile restructurings, including refinancings, the use of various restructuring techniques such as the Dutch scheme of arrangement (WHOA), strategic advice relating to the acquisition or disposal of distressed debt, security reviews, corporate or HR reorganisations, renegotiating key contracts and dealing with counterparty risks
  • Corporate insolvency proceedings - Our focus is to work with you to help your business continue trading. However, sometimes this is not viable and a suspension of payments or insolvency is the only option to move forward, so our focus turns to standing by you to limit any risks that may arise. With constantly shifting market dynamics and economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are currently finding it challenging to meet financial demands. If insolvency is the only option, we will make sure you understand the process, options and challenges ahead.
  • Distressed M&A - We are living in an environment where there is an increase in distressed M&A transactions. We expect to see an increase of insolvent sales, where traditional M&A transactions will not accommodate significant creditor stretch or an over leveraged debt structure, which dictates the use of an insolvency process to deliver a sale.
