Contingency planning and insolvency options

Most restructurings need a “Plan B.” In particularly challenging situations, when businesses face increasing risks and challenges to continued trading, we can help create the time, space and environment to develop and deliver the right solutions using extensive experience of insolvency options.

What EY can do for you

We work with management and financial stakeholders to use the pace, protection, powers and flexibility available under applicable insolvency law to address the issues threatening a business’ survival.

We use contingency planning and insolvency solutions to create restructuring legacies by:

  • Increasing the chance of a consensual restructuring through a credible “Plan B”
  • Delivering a rescue that could not otherwise be achieved
  • Preserving and recovering value, stabilizing critical services, and protecting jobs
  • Providing a controlled exit

We bring an unrivaled ability to connect globally and deliver locally in multiple different jurisdictions.
