Insolvency and Business Restructuring

“… good reputation for restructuring, helping clients with financial difficulties and winning work from creditor banks.”
Latin Lawyer 250

Our Insolvency and Business Restructuring practice group offers comprehensive legal advice to local and foreign companies.

Our team works with an interdisciplinary approach with professionals from other practice areas such as Financial Services, Mergers and Acquisitions, Litigation and Tax, in order to achieve a high value service for our customers.

Our firm has advised local debtors on out-of-court debt restructuring procedures in negotiations with financial entities and bondholders.

More specifically, our firm specializes in advising and representing national financial entities in debt restructuring proceedings.  It has advised local financial institutions in restructuring proceedings under Art. 35bis of the Financial Institutions Act, as well as their subsequent liquidation under reorganization proceedings. These proceedings were the first of their kind in Argentina, and set a precedent in the area of financial institution restructuring. 

Our firm also has a broad experience of representing domestic and foreign creditors in all issues connected with insolvency matters, such as executing real estate guarantees, creditors’ committees, as well as any other relevant steps in insolvency proceedings.

In addition, our firm has advised local and foreign groups in distressed M&A transactions, successfully handling the acquisition of distressed assets, through both out-of-court transactions or court-approved transactions.

Finally, as regards international insolvency matters, our firm has represented insolvency debtors with assets abroad.  Specifically, we have advised local debtors in asset preservation proceedings under Chapter 15 of the US Bankruptcy Code.

The members of the practice group regularly participate as speakers at both local and international seminars and conferences related to restructuring matters and the acquisition of distressed assets.
