We assist companies undergoing financial crisis with debt and business restructuring, the insolvency process, and other forms of legal assistance appropriate to our clients’ needs. We also represent financers, creditors, and those interested in acquiring business units or other assets undergoing restructuring. The work of our Restructuring and Insolvency team has included numerous major transactions involving both domestic and international companies in a wide variety of business sectors.
All restructuring engagements are addressed individually, taking into account the particular situation of the company, its capital structure, and the regulatory issues it faces. Our team has extensive experience interacting with the Central Bank and in seeking approval for loans and other financings from Brazilian regulatory agencies. As part of our comprehensive service in this area, we always advise clients on potential alternatives to litigation.
Our recognized expertise in capital markets and financial transactions makes us particularly well-qualified to negotiate, draft, and review contracts required to implement decisions made in the course of the restructuring or recovery process in Brazil or foreign territories.
