Baker McKenzie has published the seventh edition of the Global Restructuring & Insolvency Guide.

The Guide has been compiled by Baker McKenzie lawyers experienced in the practical aspects of restructuring and insolvency. It should provide you with a helpful reference tool to understand the numerous insolvency and restructuring regimes that may affect your business. It answers some key questions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as, ‘Is state support for distressed businesses available?’ and ‘Are dispensations being granted or amendments made (such as restrictions on creditor actions) in light of COVID-19?’

Our lawyers have been advising on some of the largest and most complex multijurisdictional restructurings, recoveries and insolvencies for many years. Bringing together experts from a variety of disciplines, the Restructuring & Insolvency Group at Baker McKenzie provides a full-service offering. In addition to our dedicated restructuring lawyers, our team will call on the expertise of colleagues in our wider group, including specialists in finance, capital markets, M&A, employment, tax, dispute resolution, real estate, intellectual property and international commercial & trade. Together we apply our experience in providing complete cross-border restructuring and recovery solutions.
