Business Rescue, Restructuring & Insolvency

The business rescue process introduced in the new Companies Act, No 71 of 2008 allows some breathing space to companies facing financial distress. The new procedures allow a business rescue practitioner to step in and keep the company operating, either to return the company to profitable ways or to ensure a better return for creditors than they would receive in the case of liquidation.

Our focus is on guiding our clients to make the right decisions at the right time. We can help you proactively manage the process, decrease legal risk and financial exposure and explore the available options.

  • Managing financial corporate overexposure and debt restructuring.
