Our Firm has significant expertise in assisting both legal entities and individuals throughout the process of recovering misappropriated assets and/or debts located in Switzerland or in other jurisdictions. In this respect, and in view of our broad expertise in financial matters, we assist our clients, inter alia, in cases related to bankruptcy proceedings. We act in particular for clients, instigating or defending insolvency-related actions, but we also assist creditors in collecting their claims against insolvent debtors and cooperate with the relevant bodies. The firm’s activity extends to cross-border insolvencies as well as insolvencies involving specific commercial actors.
We have acted both as appointed liquidators, liquidating the clients’ business from A to Z, and as creditor representatives, making sure that the creditors’ rights are sufficiently protected.
Our bankruptcy experience includes:
- Acted as liquidators of a number of Swiss companies in a wide range of industries (finance, commodities trading, real estate, etc.)
- Representing debtors’ and creditors’ interests of companies in liquidation
- Bringing or defending claims before the Swiss bankruptcy authorities
- Investigating and tracing debtors’ assets for the benefit of the creditors in question in collaboration with the competent authorities
