In rocky times, there is nothing more important for a business than having access to practical advice and effective legal services. At Al Tamimi & Company, we have the experience, expertise and reach to assist companies, debtors and creditors during such times.

Our Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency team has unrivalled experience in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region on formal and informal workouts, representing the full spectrum of stakeholders from corporate debtors to lender groups; creditor committees; board of directors and insolvency officers; bondholders; shareholders and private equity sponsors; and accountants and financial advisers.

On the creditor side, Al Tamimi & Company has expertise working on all aspects of the insolvency and restructuring journey, including standstill and moratoriums, debt rescheduling, debt purchases, rescue securitisations and guiding clients through the insolvency regime in the region. On the debtor side, we have a wealth of experience advising distressed companies and their investors in corporate reorganisations, asset sales, divestitures and other distressed transactions.

We are frequently retained as trusted advisers to shareholders, boards and senior management teams, and also work closely with other advisors internationally on issues specific to the MENA region including other international law firms, accountants and financial advisers.
