Bankruptcy proceedings

Advice and appraisals in connection with bankruptcy proceedings.

What are Bankruptcy Proceedings?

Bankruptcy Proceedings are legal proceedings of property law to order payments when a person or business becomes insolvent.

The Spanish Bankruptcy Law aims to guarantee the viability of the company and the payment of its debts under the supervision of a Commercial Court who will appoint an Official Receiver (trustee) to regulate it when the company cannot pay its debts, whether temporarily or permanently, and presents a winding up petition.

Within the bankruptcy proceedings, it is essential to determine the fair value of the assets to be sold or rented or, if the company is to be wound up, to estimate the net asset value.

Who needs it?

Companies subject to preliminary bankruptcy or bankruptcy proceedings and arrangements with creditors as well as creditors of whichever kind.

This service is aimed at owners, managers and shareholders of companies undergoing an bankruptcy proceeding, as well as official receivers or trustees and creditors overall who need advice on the proceedings and the appraisal of all kinds of assets, in compliance with the Bankruptcy Law for imminent bankruptcy.
