Insolvency & Restructuring

When it comes to a crisis, distressed businesses, debtors, creditors and business partners need to act quickly and decisively in order to preserve the value of their company, property or investment, to buy time, to achieve stability and to seek relief and avoid the negative effects of insolvency.  The challenge is to develop and execute an effective strategy whilst being exposed to time pressure. We understand the concerns of our clients and we are able to use our skill and knowledge in order to protect the clients’ interests with our team of our professionals.

Insolvency laws are very formal and absolute compliance with the statutes is necessary. There are still numerous questions for practical life and lawyers often have to make a case using foreign law arguments and a general law approach. Clients appreciate well prepared lawyers that have the courage to persuade insolvency judges and trustees about their position.

In every crisis there are windows of opportunity; moments when businesses can still be rescued, rehabilitated or reorganized. We have the necessary skills and experience to guide you through these times. At Wilsons, we will help you to seize hidden opportunities.

Litigation & Dispute resolution

A complex risk management aimed at avoiding litigation wherever possible is the primary goal for Wilsons’ dispute resolution practice group. But when a formal dispute cannot be avoided, Wilsons’ dispute resolution team turns to trial-ready lawyers, equipped to deliver client-focused results in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

Experience and understanding a client’s business is paramount in reaching this goal. Our litigation lawyers have both the experience and in-depth knowledge of industry-specific issues. This allows them to employ the most appropriate tools and procedural strategies to maximise the client’s commercial objectives. This unique union enables them to assess all legal, commercial and reputational risks in a complex manner as well as to maximise the clients’ position for any sort of settlement.

Our lawyers have real courtroom experience and have provided comprehensive representation for defendants and plaintiffs in virtually all forms of commercial disputes. We also have experience in complex matters and specialized forums involving international arbitration and courts, including the European Court of Human Rights. We also possess wide-ranging experience in alternative dispute resolution and strategic settlements.
