Insolvency and restructuring

DESCRIPTION OF INSOLVENCY AND RESTRUCTURING LAW

All companies have payment difficulties at one time or another. It is a natural and unavoidable part of our well-oiled market economy. The reasons vary; from customers not being able, or willing, to pay the company’s regular invoices, to companies finding themselves in a temporary recession with a fall in their earnings capacity. Problems such as these can often be solved with voluntary agreements, concessions or a payment plan, but in some cases the company has to bring in an insolvency expert. Insolvency and restructuring law embraces issues arising from payment difficulties, with the normal procedure being restructuring or bankruptcy. A successful restructuring could lead to the courts deciding on compulsory composition, thus enabling a successful business with temporary liquidity problems to carry on.
