As one of the world's leading law firms, Herbert Smith Freehills advise many of the biggest and most ambitious organisations across all major regions of the globe.

We offer leading expertise to businesses that are impacted by the continuing uncertainties in global markets. Acting for some of the largest and most high-profile debtors, lenders and insolvency practitioners, we provide in-depth restructuring and insolvency expertise, alongside market-leading contentious practice support.

Our team is also recognised for structuring novel special situation financings, working with special situation funds and other alternative capital providers and for supporting lenders and investors on non-performing loan portfolio transactions and distressed investment opportunities. As such, we are trusted by a wide range of clients across many industries, most notably in the energy, commodities and mining sectors, something that truly sets us apart from our peers.

Our experience includes some of the most difficult and complex financial restructurings, including many of the biggest restructurings in recent years including:

  • Advising Ernst & Young on the Nortel administration and CVAs- one of the biggest restructuring mandates in the world
  • Advising the lenders to North Sea Oil & Gas companies EnQuest plc in connection with the group's restructuring of its US$1.2 billion revolving credit facility.
  • Advising hibu (formerly Yell) on its £2.3 billion debt restructuring.

We are recognised by the leading legal directories (including a Tier 1 ranking in Legal 500 UK 2016) for our extensive restructuring and insolvency expertise, with our 'high-quality team' attracting praise for its 'ability to manoeuvre around difficult and conflicting stakeholders', and for its 'excellent oil and gas sector expertise'.
