Restructuring & Insolvency

Creative solutions for crisis situations

The ambition of Archers’ Restructuring & Insolvency department is to provide support to our French and international based clients in all crisis situations, with a single aim: offering a creative, independent and responsible solution that enables this crisis situation to be brought to an end.

Our Restructuring & Insolvency practice is cross-disciplinary in nature, as it continuously relies on all of the skill sets of our lawyers, whether these be in M&A, finance or tax, inter alia.

Finally, the Restructuring & Insolvency department has also developed extremely close relationships with a large number of foreign partners and lawyers, which enables them to provide support to major international clients.

Our team’s practice focuses essentially on the following areas:

Advice and assistance in anticipating crisis situations

  • Analysis of the potential crisis situation
  • Management of alert procedures triggered by statutory auditors or works councils
  • Applications for appointment of special mediators (“mandataires ad hoc”, conciliators and, more generally, any interaction with courts.)

Advice and assistance on all aspects of insolvency procedures

  • Safeguard proceedings, Receivership, Liquidation proceedings
  • Debt restructuring
  • Close co-operation with court-appointed receivers, corporate restructuring teams, auditors and public authorities

Advice and assistance regarding merger and acquisition transactions

  •  Involving distressed companies (court ordered takeovers in particular) or relating to complex situations.
