Bankruptcy and Debt Restructuring 

Experience tells that there is a human tendency to deny the truth until the truth starts to overwhelmingly overrule the daydreams. This applies equally well in Albania to indebted businesses as well as their creditors. Our mission is not to nurture daydreaming, but analyse the objective facts and provide feasible course of actions for debt recovery, debt restructuring, or complete restructuring of the business.

As a matter of fact, our attorneys have taken whole functioning companies into the receivership administration and managed a few hundred of employees and production inputs on the one hand, while dealing with production sales and creditors on the other.

We advise clients on the various alternative structures, which may be appropriate to an individual restructuring, while recognizing the importance of tailoring each restructuring to the legal, commercial and financial factors involved.

These can involve issues such as local legal, financial or political sensitivities, the expectations of the Albanian market, the nature of the business or company whose debts are to be restructured and the procedures, rules and policies of the lending institutions.

CLO Legal Solutions has the resources to deal with any matter, regardless of its size, complexity or the number or locations or the parties involved. We regularly advise clients on a full range of business restructuring and insolvency issues, including:

  • Debt rescheduling and refinancing;
  • Workouts and restructurings;
  • Debt-trading;
  • Creditor advice and bankruptcy governance issues;
  • Administrations and rehabilitations.
