Insolvency issues arise for businesses and clients in any sector.

We have acted in some of the largest insolvencies of recent times including OW Bunkers, Hanjin Shipping, Arik Airlines and Alpha Insurance.
Our sector expertise and experience in cross-border insolvency gives us a unique insight into legal and commercial problems which frequently arise from the interaction of cross-border insolvency legislation and choice of law rules, the law of property, international trade law and international conventions.
