Bankruptcy and restructuring law

Bankruptcy and restructuring law

Representation of the debtor or creditor. We provide legal services in the bankruptcy and restructuring process on the part of both the debtor and creditor.

Participation in bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings. We draft and issue opinions and submit claims on behalf of creditors. We monitor the proceedings and analyse the files to protect the creditor's interests in the most effective way. We give legal opinions on the debtor's arrangement proposals. We represent creditors at creditors' meetings and in creditors' committees. We act on behalf of creditors in interlocutory proceedings (e.g. we prepare objections and conduct court proceedings regarding objections).

Preparation of submissions. At the request of debtors, we prepare petitions for bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings. We advise on the preparation of the schedule of liabilities and on drafting arrangement proposals.

Audits. We advise on the process of acquiring companies in bankruptcy or company restructuring. We help with the identification and valuation of legal risks related to the acquired assets.

Liability of board members. We conduct legal disputes regarding the liability of management board members for failure to file a petition for bankruptcy at an appropriate time (Article 299 of the Polish Commercial Companies Code). We have experience in servicing both board members and the company’s creditors.
