Når en virksomhed kommer i økonomiske vanskeligheder, medfører det ikke blot usikkerhed for virksomheden og dens ledelse og ejere, men også for ansatte, kreditorer og andre interessenter. Hvis en rekonstruktion af virksomheden ikke er mulig, er det vigtigt, at afviklingen af virksomheden sker rigtigt og hurtigt og med mindst mulige tab for alle involverede.

Vi har mange års erfaring med alle typer af insolvensretlige problemstillinger og har erfaring med at bistå virksomheder inden for alle brancher og i alle størrelser. Vi har over årene været involveret i nogle af de allerstørste rekonstruktioner og konkurser i Danmark. 

Fordi tempo og specialviden er afgørende faktorer i en rekonstruktion, samarbejder vi med eksterne parter og specialister fra andre forretningsområder om at skaffe nødvendig kapital, ledelseskraft, krisestyring eller andet, der er nødvendigt for at nå målet - en løsning, der kan sikre den fortsatte drift af virksomheden, og/eller den bedst mulige dækning af kreditorernes tilgodehavender.   

Vi arbejder altid på at sikre, at aktiver realiseres bedst muligt – enten gennem et samlet salg af de rentable dele af virksomheden eller salg af aktiver, og altid på de bedst mulige vilkår. Vi arbejder ud fra forudsætningen, at enhver form for insolvensproces skal ske bedst muligt for de involverede.

Vi bistår blandt andet med:

  • Repræsentation af kreditorer i forbindelse med nødlidende engagementer eller inddrivelse af erhvervsmæssige tilgodehavender
  • Gennemførsel af udenretlig rekonstruktion i form af aftaler med centrale parter (eks. banker)
  • Gennemførsel af anmeldte rekonstruktioner ved skifteretten
  • Håndtering af konkursboer som kurator
  • Retssager med forbindelse hermed bl.a. indenfor ledelsesansvar, pante- og kautionsretlige forhold, omstødelse, fordringsprøvelse mv.
  • Rådgivning om de skattemæssige konsekvenser af akkord, rekonstruktion mv.
  • Privat inddrivelse for forsyningsvirksomheder (læs mere).
