Contentious Insolvency Situations

In insolvencies where fraud or misconduct is suspected, who can you turn to? Duff & Phelps and Kroll’s Contentious Insolvency Situations team assists stakeholders, including creditors, investors and management, to identify solutions in contentious situations.

Our multi-disciplinary team is in 25 countries worldwide, including key global financial centers, and understands local laws and regulations.

We recognize the challenges that can arise from changing market conditions, competing interests within management, unforeseen events, fraudulent activity or mismanagement. When such situations present themselves, decision makers must proactively implement the available remedies with the assistance of experienced professionals, while also weighing the interests of creditors, investors, regulators and fiduciaries.
