We assist and advise companies that are in dire straits

AKD's Restructuring and Insolvency team has time and again proven a reliable and experienced partner in complex situations. We have been involved in nearly all major insolvencies in the Netherlands, either as trustees (in the bankruptcy of Imtech, for example) or as advisors, and our practical approach has proven to achieve good results.

Our team’s expertise covers the following areas:

Restructuring, financing and security
We assist and advise companies that are in dire straits, or their stakeholders, such as shareholders or financiers. Thanks to their in-depth knowledge, our specialists are able to offer companies a range of solutions to stave off bankruptcy, such as restructuring or refinancing.

We also assist companies in negotiations with various stakeholders such as creditors, banks, shareholders and the tax authorities. Companies needing risk analyses – when designing financing and security structures, for example – can also rely on our specialists to come through for them.

Cross-border bankruptcies
When a bankruptcy cannot be prevented, we advise creditors, shareholders, directors and officers and employees on their position vis-à-vis the trustee. In addition to litigating on behalf of creditors in disputes with trustees, we also advise on asset transactions and relaunch scenarios.

In cross-border insolvency proceedings, we work together with other global law firms in our network and can provide you with cross-border advice at an international level.

If a trustee, the tax authorities or creditors hold directors and supervisory directors of a bankrupt company liable, the joint expertise of our lawyers puts them in a unique position to assist these officers in and out of court.

Our team collaborates closely with lawyers and tax advisers from our M&A and Banking & Finance teams.
