Restructuring and Insolvency

Contact us

Increasingly complex restructuring and insolvency matters require responsive and commercial solutions. Ogier's global Restructuring and Insolvency team draws on the creativity, knowledge and experience of specialists across multiple disciplines to provide a practical perspective on rapidly evolving cross-border assignments.

Spanning Asian, European and US time-zones and working across a range of Ogier's service lines including Banking & Finance, Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Investment Funds, M&A, Private Equity and Real Estate, our multidisciplinary approach enables us to offer a one-stop, cost-efficient solution that cuts through complexity to get to what really matters.

Our expertise extends to all aspects of restructurings from consensual workouts to contentious schemes of arrangement. The close working relationship between our contentious and non-contentious teams across all of our jurisdictions means we are ideally placed to advise in the most difficult and unpredictable of distressed situations.

As a leading offshore firm, we are in constant dialogue with the regulators in the BVI, Cayman, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg. Our team includes some of the foremost names offshore, including partners who worked through the 2008 financial crisis and who drove the restructuring and insolvency work that flowed from it.

The team's pedigree sees us instructed on the largest and most important matters in our jurisdictions, including the first ever 'soft touch' provisional liquidation in the BVI, the Cayman-centred Abraaj private equity group, the award-winning restructuring of Ocean Rig, the first and largest restructuring of its kind, and the $2 billion dispute over the Guernsey-based Carlyle Group.

Ogier's insolvency specialists include Fellows of INSOL International and members of the Association of Restructuring and Insolvency Experts (ARIES), the Recovery and Insolvency Specialists Association of the Cayman Islands (RISA), the Recovery and Insolvency Specialists Association (BVI) Limited (RISA BVI), the Chancery Bar Association, the Association of Business Recovery Professionals (R3) and the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP).
