Contingency planning and insolvency options

  • Share

Most restructurings need a “Plan B”. Whether as a contingency plan to provide comfort for directors and stakeholders or, alternatively, for financial stakeholders to create a credible ‘stick’ to break the deadlock and help all parties reach a consensual deal. In particularly challenging situations, when directors and businesses are facing increasing risks and challenges to continued trading, we create the time, space and environment to develop and deliver the right solutions using extensive experience of UK and cross-border insolvency solutions.

In the UK and Ireland we deliver:

  • Options analysis
  • Contingency planning
  • Assistance to directors navigating the zone of insolvency
  • Entity priority analysis
  • Schemes of arrangements
  • Administrations (including prepacks and trading insolvencies)
  • Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVA)
  • Receiverships
  • Examinerships
  • Liquidations
  • Contentious insolvency
  • Cross-border insolvency solutions

How we can help

We work with management and financial stakeholders to use the pace, protection, powers and flexibility available under 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, stabilising critical services and protecting jobs
  • Providing a controlled exit
