Corporate Restructuring

Taking the decision to restructure your business might be about making things more efficient or effective or it could be part of a plan to save the business when it’s at risk. Either way, it is essential to get expert legal advice to ensure you can restructure in the right way and that all of the legal details are taken care of.

Glanvilles advises companies enter into any form of restructuring for a wide range of reasons. Very often this takes place in circumstances where the company is in a state of financial distress, whether it is formally insolvent or not.

In other instances, there may be a group of companies which need to simplify or restructure the group as a whole. Once again, we are able to advise on the implications of such an action and to prepare the necessary agreements to carry out the restructuring.

Our team can help you review your situation and consider all restructuring options. If you know exactly what you need to do, we can work with you to swiftly get the right arrangements in place.

With many years of experience guiding businesses through restructuring, we can ensure every detail is taken care of, helping you to achieve your goals while staying in full compliance with the law.
