Weil London Launches Inaugural European Restructuring Watch

We are pleased to launch the first posting of Weil's European Restructuring Watch, an online microsite where we will make regular postings on key developments in restructuring in London and across Continental Europe. The European Restructuring Watch will also have our key client notes and publications, such as our Comparative Guide to Restructuring Procedures, available to download.

The Restructuring Watch will allow users to access articles and information across a broad range of categories, including the below:

In our first posting we include a link to our Client Guide on Schemes of Arrangement. Since the start of the global financial crisis there has been a significant increase in the use of schemes of arrangement as a restructuring tool. While some restructurings can be got away consensually, it is our experience that schemes of arrangement in many cases, whilst they may not ultimately need to proceed up to the sanction stage, can form a key Plan B fall-back strategy. We also include postings and updates regarding current mandates on which we are advising, including the ground-breaking and “historic” case of MF Global UK’s special administration.
