Restructuring & Insolvency
P&S legal advisors have significant experience in advising clients on all matters relating to public and private companies in underperforming and distressed situations. We advise clients (banks, creditors and debtors) in proceedings on financial restructuring to achieve the liquidity and solvency of the debtor. We advise on choosing the right (allowed and obligatory) measures of financial restructuring and its scope. We also assist our clients by preparing relevant documents for financial restructuring (such as report on the measures of financial restructuring, master restructuring agreement, financial restructuring plan etc.). While advising on complex financial restructuring we fully cooperate with our in-house financial team of specialists.
We have the expertise to effect all types of restructuring transactions, including: moratoriums, standstills arrangements, rescheduling of debts, debt to equity swaps, restructuring by means of corporate finance transactions (e.g. buy-outs, M&A, new equity investment etc.), restructurings through insolvency processes and other forms of capital restructuring.
We also provide to clients legal advice on diligent preparation and selection of preventive measures for avoidance or elimination of any factors that may cause the company to become insolvent. We also provide legal advice on how to apply and secure claims to clients, who conduct business with legal entities that have financial difficulties and to clients, who are creditors in any of the insolvency proceedings. We advise on all types of insolvency proceedings, debt restructuring, distressed financing and rescheduling, distressed acquisitions/sales, formal insolvency proceedings, out-of-court restructurings and refinancing and distressed debt trading.
