Coblence avocats possess a strong and diverse practice in the field of prevention and handling of company difficulties, be it in the matter of advice in restructuring or litigation during insolvency proceedings.

The Restructuring / Insolvency team regularly takes action on behalf of large industry and services companies, managers, shareholders, investors or creditors in the context of complex restructuring (whether subject to judicial oversight or not). It also formulates takeovers bids and presents them to the "court".

The Restructuring / Insolvency team has a large range of multidisciplinary skills at his disposals. This, together with support from the other departments of Coblence avocats and its networks of foreign law firms, allows the team to advise its French and international clients dealing with French and international restructuring proceedings.
