The COVID-19 pandemic is posing the biggest existential threat to commercial entities in a generation. Companies across the globe are getting to grips with multiple operational challenges and many are rightly concerned about their business continuity and restructuring options should the pressure begin to become insurmountable.
To help businesses understand their options and consider operational strategies to mitigate the worst impacts of the crisis, Interlaw Ltd. hosted a webinar on 13 May 2020 and assembled an expert panel of specialist corporate restructuring and insolvency lawyers from across the Asia Pacific and the Middle East operations, to provide guidance and practical advice on tackling business-critical concerns.
This expert panel included lawyers from CNPLaw LLP, Hunt & Hunt Lawyers, L&L Partners, Stevenson, Wong & Co. and Trowers & Hamlins. They answered questions about restructuring vehicles and director’s liabilities through to recent changes in insolvency law frameworks and tackled the key considerations facing businesses looking to safeguard their futures.

Companies periodically assess and deliberate ways to improve their financial results, and one way of achieving this may be through a successful corporate restructuring exercise, undertaken pursuant to the applicable laws.
A corporate restructuring exercise may involve the acquisition, disposal, consolidation or amalgamation of assets or shares. Other reasons that may compel a company to restructure may be to prepare the company for a sale, merger or management buyout. In almost all cases, legal and financial reasons will dictate the approach and outcome.
By leveraging on our corporate and insolvency law practices within the firm, we aim to help clients achieve their restructuring objectives by offering strategic advance planning, assessing the possible business outcomes and legal restrictions, and managing the interests of the stakeholders involved, namely the shareholders, creditors, customers, and employees.
