Restructuring and Turn-Around

Our Restructuring and Turn-Around Team is specialised in assisting distressed companies in their legal and financial reorganization.

We act primarily on behalf of distressed companies (SMEs), their shareholders, investors (French and foreign) and managers, active in a variety of business sectors (notably services, industry, and real estate).

Our team acts both in the context of amicable procedures (ad hoc mandates and conciliation) and bankruptcy proceedings (safeguard procedure, receivership and liquidation).

Chammas & Marcheteau’s expertise is deployed during all phases of a given matter: diagnostic of the situation, formulating the appropriate solutions and implementing same, assistance vis-à-vis the relevant judicial authorities, assistance in negotiations with the company’s principal creditors (banks, financiers and other third parties) and potential investors, drafting restructuring agreements and plans (safeguard and rescue).

Chammas & Marcheteau also advises investors, both French and foreign, on the  formulation and presentation of take-over bids for distressed companies.

Our team also assists managers in respect of their personal liability and duties, as well as those of judicial administrators and creditor representatives.

Given their experience, the lawyers on our Restructuring and Turn-Around Team are able to advise on not only the legal aspects of the given matter, but also on the financial, economic and strategic aspects as well.

Our Restructuring and Turn-Around Team works closely with our Employment Law, Corporate and Tax Teams.
