Practices: Restructuring and Insolvency

Restructuring and Insolvency

Krogerus has one of the leading restructuring and insolvency practices in Finland, both in terms of number of lawyers and our expertise. We provide a broad range of legal and commercial advice to distressed companies and are frequently called upon to act as an administrator in bankruptcy estates. We offer the country’s largest team of lawyers specialising in all aspects of bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring. Our extensive experience has been gained through our successful involvement in some of the most challenging, complex and high-profile cases of recent times in the country. Typical assignments include restructurings and work-outs, rescheduling of debts, bankruptcy sales and purchases, and re-financing. We also advise on restructuring by means of corporate finance transactions, such as buy-outs and mergers and acquisitions. To ensure ethical standards are maintained inside the firm, we have an internal control programme that we use to review the bankruptcies the firm administers.
