Insolvabilité et restructuration

Clyde & Co offre des conseils commerciaux rapides, sensibles à ses clients qui sont mêlés à des cas d’insolvabilité et de restructuration, que ce soit à titre de créancier ou de débiteur, dans tous les territoires de compétence.

Du soutien à toutes les étapes du processus d’insolvabilité

Du soutien à toutes les étapes du processus d’insolvabilité

Nous représentons des clients de toutes les tailles, quel que soit leur rôle dans une situation d’insolvabilité ou de restructuration. Nous maîtrisons la réglementation nationale et internationale et naviguons avec expertise dans des cas complexes touchant plusieurs territoires.

Notre priorité est toujours de comprendre intimement les circonstances et les objectifs des clients. Nous pouvons ainsi leur offrir des conseils et du soutien sur mesure tout au long du processus.

Nous avons une longue expérience des affaires litigieuses et non litigieuses, y compris les restructurations consensuelles. Nous agissons au nom de sociétés, séquestres, syndics autorisés en insolvabilité, administrateurs, financiers et administrateurs de régime de retraite. Pour veiller à ce que nos recommandations soient pragmatiques et pertinentes, nous nous appuyons sur nos connaissances approfondies du domaine.

Très conscients des changements dans le paysage des risques, nous faisons appel à notre expertise pour aider les clients à réagir aux difficultés et aux occasions à mesure qu’elles se présentent. Pour ce faire, nous pouvons aussi conseiller l’avocat général d’une organisation pour qu’il puisse assumer plus de responsabilités en matière d’évaluation des risques, de gestion des situations de crise et de direction éthique.

Nous savons que les litiges sont difficiles pour les sociétés insolvables et en difficulté. Lorsque leur entreprise fait l’objet d’une liquidation ou est soumise à d’autres procédures d’insolvabilité, nous pouvons également orienter nos clients dans le financement des réclamations en cas de litige.

Nous fournissons aussi des orientations sur les effets potentiels de nouveautés commerciales plus vastes, par exemple l’accélération rapide du recours aux technologies associées aux chaînes de blocs, aux contrats intelligents et à l’intelligence artificielle.
