Due to his prior experience in major Italian and international law firms in the insolvency and restructuring department, Mr. Abbondi dealt with the restructuring of well renewed industrial groups, both national and international. He also regularly confronts with transaction concerning insolvent or potentially insolvent companies, providing to the clients an innovative expertise of the insolvency procedures, in light of the newly reformed insolvency code.
At present, the advising activity is targeted mainly toward smaller – but sometimes equally complex – transaction related to those medium-size companies that represent the structure of the Italian industry.
Creditors, including banks and other financial investors and steering committees, insolvency practitioners, corporate debtors and their directors/officers rely on our restructuring and insolvency expertise. This encompasses debt restructuring and rescheduling, equity capital raising and restructuring, distressed M&A activity, investigation, asset tracing and insolvency litigation, formal insolvency procedures and contingency planning, distressed creditor and equity investment and trading and debtor advisory work.
The assistance is also directed to commercial enterprises and entrepreneurs, during the stage of the evaluation, drafting, filing and execution of the recovery plans, the restructuring agreements or composition with the creditors.
We regularly represent a whole range of stakeholders from corporate debtors experiencing financial difficulties to lender groups; agents to syndicated lending groups; commercial creditors; insolvency officers; official and unofficial creditors’ committees; principal finance and private equity sponsors; financial institutions; accountants; and financial advisers.
We have the expertise to effect all types of transactions, including: restructurings and rescue securitisations; moratoriums; work-outs; standstills and override arrangements; rescheduling of debts; debt to equity swaps; other forms of capital restructuring
