Our expertise

Insolvency & Restructuring

With years of experience in assisting companies experiencing financial difficulties, our Insolvency & Restructuring team is the leading team in the Dutch Caribbean.

Insolvency & Restructuring

Our approach to any request for advice or assistance is characterized by our clients as thorough and hands on. We work closely together with the experts in our Banking & Finance and Corporate/M&A teams.

We assist clients whose businesses find themselves in financial distress and in need of restructuring as well as assisting lenders of such parties. In such situations, a vast number of risks converge at the same time that need to be addressed and quickly so. Our expertise lies in advising on and management of all types of restructuring/liquidation and insolvency-related issues in the broadest sense of the word.

The experts within our Insolvency & Restructuring team also regularly act as Court appointed bankruptcy receivers in insolvencies with a local as well as a more international connotation like -recently- the bankruptcies of the Curacao branch of Lehman Brothers, the Curacao based bank with Venezuelan roots, Banco del Orinoco N.V. and the local airline company Insel Air.
