Debt Refinancing and Restructuring

Advising on complex and preventive corporate-refinancing and debt-restructuring transactions, many involving several jurisdictions.

Our advisory service includes analyzing our clients’ financial needs and debt structures, and assisting them to implement legal solutions, so as to achieve financial stability for those companies. We advise on the adjustment plans required to enable companies to adapt to the new economic conditions and market situation.

We analyze the debt to be restructured and the legal implications for debtors and creditors arising from these situations, including new security packages, conversions in new debt instruments, and hive-downs involving assets or debt.

We actively participate in the negotiation of agreement proposals, and coordinate and manage the formalization of all documents required to complete the process, including standstill and refinancing agreements, and in relation to court approval proceedings. We also handle strategies aimed at acquiring debt through financing transactions (buy-to-own and loan-to-own transactions).

Our clients are national and multinational companies in financial trouble, financial institutions, and all kinds of funds (senior and mezzanine) that have acquired debt positions in companies. We also analyze conversion and capitalization strategies to build control positions in the capital structure.

The team also has demonstrable experience on the creditor side of debt restructuring, acting both for bank lenders and for hedge funds.
