Insolvency & Restructuring

We advise insolvency practitioners, public and private companies, asset based lenders, banks and individuals on all aspects of the law relating to business rescue, recovery, restructuring and insolvency.

We provide solutions to complex technical problems on both UK and cross border issues. Our team advises on restructuring both corporate vehicles and debt together with the implementation of rescue structures, voluntary arrangements, bankruptcy, administrations, liquidations, as well as other insolvency related issues. We also advise corporates about their duties to their shareholders during difficult trading conditions.

Last but by no means least – we also advise individual directors on their personal responsibilities under the Companies Act 2006 and should they be prosecuted, defend them in relation to activates deemed contrary to the Directors Disqualification Act.

Child & Child has strength and depth across all legal disciplines and industry sectors. As well as acting for those leading the insolvency process – we also act for the purchasers of distressed businesses. In what is rather reminiscent of "poacher turned gamekeeper" we can bring our extensive experience across all departments to bear fruit for any would-be purchaser of a distressed business.
