Insolvency & Corporate Restructuring | Aberdein Considine Legal

Insolvency & Corporate Restructuring

Our Insolvency and Corporate Recovery offering provides outstanding service to a client base ranging from high-net worth private individuals and SMEs, through to large corporations, and many of the country’s leading Insolvency Practitioners and Financial Institutions.

The team place an emphasis on providing a high level of service to our clients at a cost level which, we believe, allows for greater Partner involvement than one finds at other Scottish commercial law firms and provides best value for money.

In addition to Ross Webb and Euan McSherry in our Dispute Resolution department, our Insolvency and Corporate Recovery team draws on the expertise of a range of partners and lawyers within the firm, including Ritchie Whyte and Michael Currie in Corporate, Paul Jennings and David Orr in Commercial Real Estate, Sally-Anne Anderson and Karen Harvie in Employment and Myra Scott and John Di Paola in Banking.

We are best known for the following:

  • Strong expertise advising on both pre and post appointment issues, contentious insolvency matters, corporate restructuring, employment issues and also advising on all aspects of asset and real estate realisation.
  • Sector expertise spanning energy, both Oil & Gas and Renewables, Construction, Retail and Food, Hospitality and Financial Services.
  • High-value litigation and dispute resolution expertise, with in-house Solicitor Advocates who have rights of audience at the Court of Session, with experience in mediation, adjudication and arbitration.
  • Agility - we are able to pull on a broad range of expertise which allows us to resource and deliver on high value, technical and urgent instructions – which is invaluable for the type of instructions that we are entrusted with.
  • An ability to provide commercial advice in respect of contentious, technical and high value corporate and personal insolvency matters.
  • An ability to provide insolvency and regime specific contentious and non-contentious employment law advice under the time pressures that often accompany insolvency.

We are able to adopt a creative approach to funding, are willing to share risk with our clients and work closely with a panel of trusted litigation funders that can provide finance for claims. These funding solutions relieve the strain on clients’ cash flow and working capital often making claims financially viable where otherwise that would simply not be possible and are particularly well suited to the insolvency market.
