Insolvency and Corporate Restructuring

Our Insolvency and Corporate Restructuring Area is recognized in the market for its specialization, as well as for its solid and timely advice to clients, all backed by extensive experience in financial crisis scenarios both in Court and out-of-Court insolvency proceedings.

Our practice stands out for the legal advice to creditors from the institutional financial sector for the assessment of risks and analysis of business opportunities, as well as the design and implementation of legal structures that allow them to adequately protect against a potential insolvency scenario of their debtor.

We provide comprehensive and multidisciplinary advice in all stages of the insolvency proceeding before INDECOPI, including the design of strategies and negotiation with the actors involved. Likewise, we structure asset acquisitions and/or business acquisitions operations in financial distressed situations.

In our practice, we prioritize an international approach by participating as advisors in cross-border insolvency proceedings, which has allowed us to acquire significant experience in complex cases of this nature.

The Firm has incorporated a team with proven experience in this field, since its members have participated directly in the most important insolvency proceedings and corporate restructuring cases in Peru. Likewise, they are members of specialized entities such as the INSOL International and the ABI – American Bankruptcy Institute.
