Restructuring & Insolvency

We have created specific expertise in the development of strategies to anticipate the occurrence of corporate crises, as well as in assisting candidates in the acquisition of branches of companies in collective proceedings, also through leasing management and tendering procedures. Thanks to our expertise in Finance, we also offer a service to prevent financial difficulties through audits of existing financing arrangements and the implementation of legal and financial risk mapping.

We work with multidisciplinary teams of professionals, not only for labour law, tax law, competition law and debt restructuring, but also for entrepreneurial and financial professionals, relying on a high level network in France and Italy. For insolvency proceedings, we deal with declared and disputed claims, in particular for non-admitted compensations, dismissal actions and liability of directors and partners.
