LEGAL ADVISORY SERVICES IN CONSTRUCTION SECTOR COMPANY RESTRUCTURING
We represented a financial creditor in the process of restructuring of one of the largest construction companies in Poland. We participated in negotiating composition proposals, drafting the restructuring agreement and associated documentation, as well as representing the Client at the creditors’ meeting. We supervised the process from conclusion of the composition agreement and joining in the restructuring agreement.
REPRESENTING A FUEL SECTOR COMPANY IN BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDINGS
We advised in the process of restructuring of one of the largest fuel companies in Poland. LSW lawyers represented the Client in bankruptcy proceedings and reported the entire restructuring process, from negotiations to signing the agreement.
PROTECTING THE CLIENT AGAINST BANKRUPTCY PETITIONS
For a telecom company listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange we implemented a project consisting in protecting the company against bankruptcy petitions filed by creditors, blocking pending proceedings aimed at declaration of bankruptcy and bringing about the opening of a sanative procedure in the company. The sanative procedure was ultimately commenced as one of the first in the Warsaw court.
CONDUCTING RESTRUCTURING PROCEEDINGS FOR A MEDIA AND EVENT COMPANY
We provided legal assistance to one of the largest companies involved in promotion and production of music and sports events in Poland in the course of composition bankruptcy proceedings with retained own management. We provided complex advisory services to the bankrupt entity during the entire restructuring process, starting from opening the proceedings, through creating a list of claims, presentation of composition proposals, participating in the creditors’ meeting, to final court approval of the composition agreement.
PRE-PACK LIQUIDATION BANKRUPTCY OF A STEEL SECTOR COMPANY
We successfully employed the institution of pre-pack in the Client’s bankruptcy proceedings by bringing about approval by the bankruptcy court of the terms and conditions of asset sale constituting a significant portion of the debtor’s enterprise. We also supported the Client in negotiations with the creditor (pledgee bank) aimed at obtaining consent for the sale of the debtor’s assets secured in the bank’s favour as part of the pre-pack process.
