Restructuring and companies in distress

We advise and assist a variety of French and foreign companies in difficulty, as well as their shareholders, creditors or partners, or even candidates for the acquisition of assets or shareholdings, in the context of all the procedures offered by French law for dealing with difficulties, whether judicial or amicable.

We also act in the context of pre-litigation and litigation linked to restructuring, whether they fall under common law or are specific to insolvency proceedings.

We also assist our clients, upstream of any difficulties, in order to protect their interests in the face of the potential default of their partners.

We have more than 20 years experience in this field, and can offer you pragmatic and operational solutions.
