Led by Martín Gastaldi, Beccar Varela’s insolvency group acts for both domestic and foreign clients in corporate restructurings and bankruptcy proceedings, with notable experience in highly contentious cases. Creditor-side work is the mainstay of the practice, such as its recent advice to Banco de Galicia y Buenos Aires on Magnacom’s AR$31m reorganisation proceedings.
