Restructuring and insolvency

Within: Restructuring and insolvency

Headed by the 'very sensible and commercial' Jamie Stranger, Stephenson Harwood provides 'excellent service' to an impressive roster of insolvency practitioners including Deloitte, Baker Tilly and Borelli Walsh. Noted for his 'extensive insolvency and litigation experience', Stranger has a particular focus on contentious insolvency matters and is acting for the joint provisional liquidators (JPLs) on the Hong Kong aspects of the provisional liquidation and potential restructuring of CECEP COSTIN New Materials, work that has included advice on disputes with the landlord in Hong Kong and obtaining a foreign recognition order from the Hong Kong Court setting out the JPLs' powers in Hong Kong. Ivan Ng is also noted for his contentious insolvency work, while 'very proactive' senior associate Eloise Fardon has successfully built up the office's increased flow of non-contentious restructuring work, including her advice to Winsway Enterprises Holding on the restructuring of $310m-worth of New York law-governed notes.

  • Companies should plan now to minimise their pension protection levy

    The amount that pension schemes have to pay to the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) for the year 2006/07 may have increased by as much as five times the previous year's levy. Employers who ultimately bear the cost of many pension schemes will need to make plans now to ensure the levy payable for the year 2008/09 is kept to a minimum.
