Restructing and Insolvency

Reshaping Progress

We handle both contentious and non-contentious insolvency matters, and have had experience acting for companies, creditors, as well as liquidators.

Our team constitutes lawyers from a variety of backgrounds including dispute resolution, mergers and acquisitions, tax, and finance. This breadth of exposure to both disputes and commercial transactions allows us to approach restructuring and insolvency matters from a different perspective, and ensures that our strategy covers all angles. It also allows us to tap onto the different skill sets picked up from different areas of practice, and apply it to the dynamic nature of restructuring and insolvency practice.

Some notable transactions we have advised on include:

• Advised on the restructuring of a Hong-Kong based investment company, which involved dealing with approximately US$50million worth of loans and securities between several entities.

• Advised on the distribution of assets for dividend in-specie of a multi-national company operating in Europe, but with its corporate headquarters in Singapore.

• Advised a Swedish multinational corporation on tax implications in a proposed group restructuring.

• Acted for a multinational corporation establishing their regional headquarters in Singapore and establishing a working transfer pricing policy. This deal involved significant negotiation with the Singapore tax authorities.
