We act in some of the highest-profile global insolvencies.
We are a leading team of contentious insolvency and asset recovery specialists. We act for officeholders and other stakeholders including lenders, directors, shareholders and investors.
We resolve disputes, monetise claims and pursue the recovery of assets in an insolvency or distressed context. Our team has an outstanding track record of working effectively with the insolvency and business recovery teams at the major global accounting practices.
As a conflict-free litigation-only law firm, we are uniquely placed to work on disputes where other law firms may be conflicted. This often arises in intrabanking, financial services and other disputes involving major corporates.
Our team has unrivalled experience in putting together innovative costs arrangements. We deploy risk sharing fee agreements, third-party funding and after the event insurance to enable our clients to pursue claims and recover assets from a position of financial strength.
Our lawyers frequently coordinate claims in multiple jurisdictions, working alongside specialist law firms from around the world. We are also experts in obtaining recognition of foreign insolvency proceedings in the UK, and UK insolvency proceedings overseas.
Where necessary, we draw on the expertise of our litigation specialists in trusts, employment, competition, financial crime and tax to provide a comprehensive insolvency litigation and asset recovery service to our clients.
