Druces LLP has a tradition of successful involvement for our clients in business turnaround, rescue, and restructuring. We provide practical legal advice through the spectrum of turnaround to formal insolvency. Our lawyers provide a full service to companies in financial difficulties as well as to banks and other lenders, trade creditors and suppliers. We also act for office-holders in formal insolvency procedures such as administration, company voluntary arrangements, receiverships, and liquidations.
We often put together cross-disciplinary teams of experts in corporate law, corporate finance, commercial property, tax, dispute resolution, employment and pensions who are able to work swiftly in implementing our clients’ commercial requirements and strategies. Our experience is not limited to domestic UK groups – we have expertise in cross-border transactions and assignments involving Europe, the USA and other parts of the globe.
We have regularly featured as a contributor to The In-House Lawyer, a magazine for in-house counsel in the UK and EMEA, on a range of restructuring and insolvency topics. Our article archive can be found here.
