EMEA Restructuring & Refinancing

Our restructuring and refinancing practice in the EMEA region is part of our larger global bankruptcy and restructuring practice. We have experienced lawyers in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Milan and Abu Dhabi who execute transactions under English, French, German and Italian law.

Our London restructuring practice has been involved in high-profile transactions since the late 1990s, and we regularly advise clients on the restructuring of structured products, derivatives, high yield bonds and other cross-border financings as well as more straightforward workouts. In the aftermath of the Lehman collapse, our dual US/UK law offering has become increasingly relevant to our clients.
