Restructuring and Insolvency
Our restructuring and insolvency team advises enterprises as well as their board members in connection with refinancing, negotiations with investors and creditors, private debt arrangements and insolvency proceedings. In an international context, this also includes the recognition of foreign insolvency decrees for the purpose of obtaining access to assets in Switzerland and filing claims against Swiss resident debtors.
We represent board members in connection with financial difficulties and advise them on the options available with a view to preventing personal liability for failure to file for insolvency or preferential creditors’ treatment. We further act in the defense of directors’ liability claims.
Our representation of creditors includes the filing of claims against the enterprise in insolvency, representation in the creditor’s committee and the filing of claims and actions including director and/or auditor liability, voidable preferences or fraudulent conveyances.
