Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency


We can help you find practical solutions and secure results in both corporate and personal insolvency situations.

Our corporate restructuring and insolvency team provide expert advice to businesses facing insolvency-related challenges.

This can include pro-active assistance with credit control for businesses struggling with cash flow.

Where more significant intervention is required, we advise on restructuring options for businesses including corporate and equity restructuring, voluntary arrangements, administrations and liquidations.

We regularly work with Insolvency Practitioners appointed as administrators, receivers or liquidators, advising them on matters ranging from the validity of their appointment to the recovery and realisation of assets. 

For individuals facing potential bankruptcy, we can advise and assist in relation to the process and the options available, including individual voluntary arrangements.

Our insolvency lawyers can draw on their own specialist knowledge as well as expertise available from the wider team at Owen White in commercial property, employment and franchising to provide relevant and pragmatic advice to our clients.
