If your organisation is not performing as prognosed, perhaps as result of unforeseen circumstances, it’s important to undertake immediate action to mediate undesirable outcomes. It is possible to hedge yourself against the legal risks facing you and your company if you act quickly and decisively. Our Legal Advisory team has experience in restructuring and hedge contracts against the consequences of bankruptcy, and our consultants are standing by to help you if your company (or one of your business partners) is struggling financially. We also offer advice on WHOA (the Court of Approval of a Private Composition (Prevention of Insolvency) Act), compositions with creditors or estate settlements outside bankruptcy.
Flexibility in every situation
Restructuring and insolvency are closely related: it’s about ensuring your company takes the right steps at the right time. Based on our experience and expertise on this subject, we can offer consultation to assess what necessary precautions and preparations can be taken. Of course we’re not only there to help in troubled times, but also in positive times of change.
Does your business structure still match your company?
If your company’s operations have grown, declined or simply changed over the years, your company’s structure may no longer suit your current situation. Reviewing your business operations may therefore be a good idea. We can help you to assess whether your company’s structure is in line with the current position of the company and your requirements, both now and in the future. Changing the legal structure of your company is advisable not only if it is making a loss, but also if you are planning to sell your company or let employees buy shares, for instance.
