Our team assists our clients in connection with debt restructurings, insolvency proceedings, acquisitions of underperforming companies, acquisition of going concerns in insolvency proceedings ("plans de cession") and insolvency-related litigation. The matters we handle are often international.
Our team is experienced in managing not only out-of-court debt renegotiation but also insolvency proceedings and the associated litigation (shareholders' and directors’ liability, piercing the corporate veil, appeals against safeguard plans, etc.). We work closely with our teams in Finance, Private Equity, M&A, Tax Law and Employment Law enabling us to tailor our organisation and the implementation of restructuring plans.
Our expertise in cross-border insolvency proceedings is particularly strong, regardless of whether the proceedings fall within the scope of Regulation (EU) 2015/848 or not. We are accustomed to guiding our international clients through the special features of restructuring negotiations and insolvency proceedings in a French context.
We have extensive experience in setting up French trusts (“fiducies”), as this mechanism is often used in connection with debt restructurings.
