Bankruptcy law and special situations
Acquisition and sale of businesses distressed, NPLs, restructuring transactions and debt consolidation, insolvency proceedings are some of the so-called “special situations” which companies may unfortunately deal with or in which they may thankfully invest. Such situations require the assistance of specialized lawyers to solve/manage the relevant issue or to make the investment.
We provide assistance to investment companies operating within the special situations, by drafting, inter alia, credit assignment agreements or liquidation arrangements under which investment can be made (by acting as a third-party transferee in the insolvency proceedings), in addition to providing assistance in dealing with proceedings bodies and assessing assets and pending actions. More generally, we advise clients during all complex phases of the investment transaction either in court or out-of-court, also participating in the relevant negotiations and preparing the relevant agreements.
We also provide assistance to companies which, on the contrary, are in a state of crisis or insolvency, by assessing accounting and documents, in order to propose and carry out the most suitable solutions to solve the issue (e.g., voluntary arrangements with creditors or bankruptcy and debt restructuring), together with managing dealings with proceedings bodies and corporate creditors.
