Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency

Restructuring and insolvency are vital corporate management strategies, enabling businesses to optimise operations, ensure smooth transitions in ownership and potentially maximise profits. Ensuring that such measures are enacted efficiently and effectively requires an experienced legal partner with a developed business acumen.

G J Moloney’s professional restructuring and insolvency team offers both of these essential qualities and can advise you across a wide range of insolvency matters. Our team has significant experience in advising financial institutions, statutory bodies, insolvency practitioners, receivers, liquidators, creditors and accountants – as well as regularly acting for businesses in financial difficulties, shareholders, directors and trustees.

LITIGATION

We can offer expert advice in all types of insolvency related litigation, including:

  • Representing financial institutions in commercial disputes
  • Winding up
  • Examinership and receivership application
  • Liquidator appointments
  • Objections to proposed insolvency arrangements and court directions for insolvency practitioners
  • Pursuing preference claims or fraudulent lending reckless trading
  • Restrictions of and disqualification of directors.

We have excellent working relationships with the courts and court administration offices throughout Ireland which assists us in ensuring the smooth handling of cases for clients. Through our offices in Dublin and Cork we cover the entire country in respect of initiating, defending and attending commercial and corporate court matters.

CORPORATE MATTERS

Our team advises companies, advisors and insolvency practitioners to enable distressed companies, or as much as possible of these companies, to continue operating with a view to returning to profitability. As part of this, we work with insolvency practitioners, directors and shareholders to identify, agree and put in place corporate reorganisation and reconstruction. Separately we assist interest parties in the management of the restructuring or winding up of entities in such a manner as to ensure the best return possible for creditors and members.

G J Moloney advises creditors, shareholders, guarantors and directors on the many issues which may confront them prior to or during receivership, examinership, provisional liquidation or liquidation.

RECEIVERS

We also advise receivers appointed in respect of companies, residential, commercial and agricultural properties. Our team is engaged in such matters from the outset including the appointment of the receiver and advising them of the powers and duties.
G J Moloney has advised receivers in a wide variety of matters from the sale of lands and property to receiverships involving complex property assets such as hotels, pubs, shopping centres and apartments. Advice provided to receivers in such property matters include:

  • Reviewing title, planning, leases and other issues and providing title reports to the receiver.
  • The sale of the property by way of private sale or auction.
  • The preparation of letting agreements.
  • Management company issues.
  • Issues relating to the sale or letting of the property.
  • Obtaining vacant possession.

INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS

We have longstanding relationships with foreign law firms and international clients and frequently represent such clients in litigation in Ireland including recovering debts due by Irish based debtors.
