Restructuring & Insolvency

The market knows us as the outright leaders in Italy in restructuring and insolvency and it’s the view shared by everyone who has seen first-hand our ability to deliver the best solutions – debtors, financial institutions and other parties involved in insolvency proceedings.

The great flexibility of the restructuring tools available under Italian legislation requires that restructuring and pre-bankruptcy settlement arrangements with creditors be tailored to your individual needs, including through extraordinary transactions.

We are aware that we have a very delicate task when working with companies considering how to restructure their debt. Our first consideration is to understand the extent of the insolvency, evaluate the risks involved, outline what legislation has to offer in these situations and, of course, come up with the right solutions. When we assist insolvent companies, we draw on our decades of experience and innovation to design workable solutions for creditors, minimising the sacrifice involved and helping the company rebuild itself.

When working for financial institutions, as well as striving to ensure the greatest possible satisfaction, we also strive to recover additional financing, keeping risks to a minimum in terms of both debt recovery and financing. To this end, we undertake the complex task of coordinating individual situations with individual needs, often acting as a filter for the debtor, and we use our technical authority to find reasonable answers to the requests and objectives of the banks involved.

In insolvency proceedings, especially in cases of extraordinary administration, we offer a team of multi-disciplinary professionals with proven expertise in the legal requirements and their application. Our team are quick and efficient when it comes to providing solutions. Thanks to our expertise in different sectors, we make the process as simple as possible, examining and solving all the issues involved simultaneously.
