DLA Piper

DLA Piper’s UK Restructuring group has over 40 restructuring lawyers across our national network of six offices: Birmingham, Leeds, London, Manchester and Sheffield.

Our knowledge, experience and resources serve a diverse client base encompassing debtor, lenders, government entities, private equity sponsors, trustees, shareholders, directors, and distressed debt and asset buyers and investors.

We manage assignments from the mid-market to the largest national and international restructurings and insolvencies and are experienced in managing all contentious issues arising from such cases. Our lawyers have significant experience of advising clients on investigation, enforcement, litigation and asset recovery on a multi-jurisdictional basis.

We advise clients across a wide range of industry sectors and have particular strength in energy, financial services, healthcare, hospitality and leisure, real estate, retail, sports, technology and transportation. We are proud of our long-standing relationships with the principal professional advisers in the market.

We have been recognized as ‘Legal Adviser of the Year’ at the 2018 Institute for Turnaround (IFT) Awards. We are proud that two of our clients, Hearts of Midlothian plc and Willerby were recognized by the IFT as well. In 2014 Hearts of Midlothian plc won ‘Listed Company Turnaround of the Year’ award and in 2017 Willerby Group won ‘Large Company Turnaround of the Year’ award.
