Who we are
Our team combines the professional expertise of three complimentary disciplines to provide a seamless service covering all components of any distressed real estate restructuring and recovery project.
|Our real estate specialists from Cap Real Estate, our joint venture partner, have variously worked in a professional advisory capacity, as property lenders and as the principals of property investment and development companies.||Our insolvency and restructuring professionals are experts in crisis management and the execution of rescue strategies. When necessary, they will take control of distressed entities or assets.||Our tax specialists advise on financial structuring, international tax and complex transactions covering all direct and indirect tax aspects of a distressed real estate project.|
What we do
We use a clear methodology to deliver enhanced outcomes when dealing with a distressed real estate project. We provide advice on-site origination, acquisition support, planning, building design optimisation, development funding, the enforcement of lender security and exit planning.
- We provide independent reviews to evaluate the current situation and examine all restructuring options, including both formal and informal (non-insolvency) options.
- We focus on managing risk, controlling costs and maximising exit values within a timeframe appropriate to the circumstances.
- We manage and deliver the plan, implementing the solution in a controlled manner.
- We like to work consensually alongside owners, borrowers and other influential stakeholders, but are also comfortable dealing with non-consensual enforcement scenarios.
Our insolvency practitioners are licenced in the UK to act as:
- Fixed Charge Receivers
- CVA Nominees and Supervisors, and
- Qualified to advise on Part26a restructuring plans and Schemes of Arrangements
Advising across the value spectrum
We advise on a broad range of real estate restructuring matters, large and small, complex, and simple, from single asset enforcement projects to complex planning, development, and build-out projects.
