Debt & Corporate Restructuring
OverviewWe offer a full range of services in the debt & corporate restructuring arena, including advice on capital reduction, recapitalization and rescue schemes, financial sector takeovers, global asset recovery measures, mergers, creation of new entities, compromise schemes, demergers, buyouts, preparing documents and agreements, and ensuring statutory and regulatory compliance.
As an AHP client, you will benefit from the unparalleled expertise gained by many of our senior lawyers as advisors or counsel to the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency (IBRA), which restored the country’s banking sector to health in the wake of the Asian financial crisis of 1997/98.
In fact, three of our partners were either employed directly or indirectly as advisors by IBRA, meaning that our clients not only benefit from our legal experience and expertise in this practice area, but also from an in-depth knowledge of the nuts and bolts of financial and corporate restructuring gained during the height of the Asian crisis, when many of Indonesia’s major business groups went to the wall.
Indeed, our managing partner, Mr. Ahmad Fikri Assegaf, was a key advisor to the agency on corporate debt restructurings, financial sector takeovers and recapitalizations, global asset recovery measures, and the creation of Bank Mandiri through the merger of a number of ailing state banks (Mandiri is now the country's largest bank).
