Restructuring and Insolvency
Enyo Law regularly advises insolvency practitioners, lenders, borrowers, secured and unsecured creditors on all contentious aspects of insolvencies and corporate restructurings.
We advise on insolvency, bankruptcy and restructuring matters and we are well versed in dealing with circumstances in which one or more party is - or may become - insolvent, and regularly liaise with insolvency practitioners in relation to claims both for and against insolvent entities and/or structures.
Our conflict free status means that we are capable of taking positions against all of the major financial institutions in all types of complex lender or borrower disputes.
Complex corporate insolvencies and restructurings often have multi-jurisdictional elements, and we liaise with foreign lawyers (both contentious and non-contentious) in different jurisdictions in order to tailor our strategy to achieve the best result for the client. In doing so, we work closely with specialist insolvency barristers and other experts, and carefully consider which jurisdictions and which insolvency regimes and procedures are most suitable to meeting our clients’ objectives.
Insolvencies can often come about as a result of fraud and our civil fraud team has significant experience of tackling fraudulent activities in the context of insolvency and using the extensive remedies and tools available to litigators to locate and trace assets which have been dissipated globally.
We act for a wide range of clients in relation to insolvency situations, including liquidators, administrators, lenders (senior and mezzanine), creditors (secured and unsecured), and directors of insolvent entities. We have specific experience of acting for and against directors in director disqualification proceedings, often arising as a direct result of an insolvency.
