Risk is always embedded in business activity. This means that sometimes it is necessary to carry out restructuring process or file a petition for bankruptcy. Restructuring and bankruptcy proceedings are accompanied by specific and extensive legal regulations the good understanding of which requires many years’ practice. It is necessary to perform a thorough analysis of a company to carefully plan the overall process and mitigate potential risks. This is particularly important as wrong decisions taken before restructuring or bankruptcy are declared might in fact preclude such proceedings. Proper restructuring or bankruptcy proceedings may minimize or rule out personal liability of key decision makers in a company.

In particular, the decision to undergo restructuring requires an in-depth analysis of profits and losses. Thanks to analysis of the company’s standing and preparation of a relevant action plan, the restructuring process may contribute to growth in the company’s value.

On the other hand, the situation of the creditor in restructuring or bankruptcy proceedings is also very important. Relevant actions help minimize losses to be incurred by the creditor once the restructuring or bankruptcy of a counterparty is announced.
