Restructuring and Insolvency

Specialised legal services for restructuring and insolvency in NZ and offshore

Led by recognised expert Glen Holm-Hansen, Hesketh Henry’s restructuring and insolvency team provides strategic legal advice to debtors creditors, as well as insolvency practitioners. Our work involves individuals and companies in New Zealand and offshore, focusing on all aspects of insolvency and turnaround processes, from receivership’s and liquidations through to voluntary administrations and schemes of arrangements. The team is experienced in a wide range of insolvency related litigation including disputes relating to the exercise of liquidator’s powers, breaches of director duties, insolvent/voidable transactions, debt recovery, and enforcement of securities. Top of mind with every case is the need to maximise recovery and minimise losses.

Two benefits differentiate Hesketh Henry’s insolvency offering in the legal services marketplace – timeliness and a commitment to practical solutions that are commercially sound. Glen and his team know that speed is of the essence when it comes to court processes, which often have tight timeframes.  By working quickly and collaboratively with clients, they help to ensure the best possible outcome.

When poor financial health necessitates a turnaround by way of a corporate group financial restructure, Hesketh Henry’s team acts for banks and trustee corporations affected by the change. Their advice protects client interests during restructuring, work-outs and arrangements with creditors.
