Harney Westwood & Riegels has acted in some of the largest and most complex cross-border restructurings and insolvencies of recent times.

Our client base is diverse, encompassing leading international accountancy practices, onshore firms, financial institutions, insolvency office holders, official and unofficial creditors’ committees, private equity sponsors, hedge funds, debtor-in-possession lenders, directors, trustees, shareholders and corporate debtors.

We frequently advise lenders and investors at all levels of the capital structure, corporates and insolvency office holders on the use of offshore schemes of arrangement when used in parallel with other jurisdictional processes, such as Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code, or parallel schemes of arrangement in the common law jurisdictions. Other areas of expertise include: debt and equity rescheduling and refinancing; distressed mergers and acquisitions; distressed funds advice and debt recovery; formal insolvency proceedings and office holders’ conduct, powers and regulation; out-of-court restructurings and refinancings; contingency planning and implementation; schemes of arrangement; security enhancement and prioritisation; debt for equity swaps; recognition and joint protocol proceedings; workouts and enforcement of security; and directors’ duties and claims against auditors, fund administrators and other service providers.
