Insolvency & Restructuring

Our Insolvency and Restructuring team is one of the largest and most highly rated in the Irish legal market today. We have acted for stakeholders in many of the high profile and complex insolvencies in Ireland over the last decade.

We act extensively for both international and Irish banks, for insolvency practitioners, both domestic and international, and we routinely assist in the sale or purchase of distressed assets either in a restructuring or through formal processes.

We have developed a strong reputation in advising clients on examinership matters and all aspects of Ireland's corporate rescue regime.

Our practice extends to advising bondholders and other debt providers as well as general creditors and shareholders in distressed situations.

We advise directors in connection with managing insolvency risk, reducing the risk of personal liability and in respect of investigations by the Director of Corporate Enforcement.
