    Insolvency and Restructuring

    Wistrand has a long tradition of advising on insolvency issues and has worked on several of the largest and most high-profile bankruptcies in Sweden. Wistrand is ranked internationally as one of the foremost Swedish law firms in insolvency and the firm has a broad and well-developed international network of contacts.  

    We are instructed in the following matters:

    • Financial restructuring
    • Corporate restructuring
    • Bankruptcies
    • Liquidation
    • Private composition with creditors

    Our practice also comprises advice to creditors who wish to protect their interests in respect of companies in financial distress and we represent creditors in formal insolvency proceedings and in disputes relating to insolvency. Our insolvency practice group has extensive knowledge and experience in handling personal liability issues for senior managers and owners.

    Work on complex matters is facilitated by the firm's comprehensive legal base with specialist competence in all legal areas. The insolvency practice group often works, for example, together with our specialists in banking and finance in matters concerning collateral and third party rights.
