Restructuring & Bankruptcy
As an entrepreneur, you want your business to be successful and profitable. However, it can happen that the company faces financial problems. This may lead to a situation where it can be foreseen that the business will no longer be able to meet its obligations in the short term, and even faces the threat of bankruptcy. Such a situation causes unrest with suppliers, employees, lenders and with the directors themselves.
However, it is often not too late and a reorganisation, restructuring of obligations, financing or offering a creditors’ agreement can avert bankruptcy.
