Israel > Restructuring and insolvency

Gissin & Co., Advocates advises bondholders and bond trustees on debt arrangements with insolvent companies. It also acts for distressed companies through court appointments (as a receiver, trustee or liquidator) and during the sales process, negotiations with shareholders and other forms of corporate restructuring. Guy Gissin remains highly active in the field, particularly in relation to representing bondholders in major debt settlements. He serves as local counsel to Urbancorp on a cross-border restructuring, which is novel in that it is the first time a court in Canada has adopted the decision of a court in Israel concerning a Canadian company. Yael Hershkovitz is also noted.
