Insolvency and Restructuring

There is a misconception that you only need assistance when your company has failed or is in serious financial difficulty. However, seeking legal advice at the first sign of financial difficulty is the best solution.

With the largest insolvency and restructuring legal team in the country we have the pedigree and market recognition to get quick results. We regularly act in complex or multi-jurisdictional insolvencies and offer an unmatched depth of capability and service delivery.

We consult on corporate advisory, finance, insolvency and litigation. Our multi-disciplinary team regularly advises lenders, trustees, receivers and liquidators, as well as companies going through restructuring and work outs.

Our practice spans bankruptcy, creditor claims, cross-border insolvency, directors’ duties, distressed debt trading/acquisitions, liquidation, receivership, turnaround/workouts and voluntary administration.

We have broad experience across numerous industries, including agribusiness, construction, energy, resources and mining, funds management and derivatives, health and ageing, industrial, infrastructure and project finance, real estate, and retail.

The team has strong and longstanding relationships with all major insolvency and restructuring accounting firms, and sit on the panels of all major banks and financial institutions in New Zealand, so we receive the most insolvency and restructuring engagements – keeping us at the forefront of this field.
