Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, opportunities for distressed-debt investors continued to appear in the European market despite high numbers of state-backed loans and financial injections from EU member states. Such opportunities are set to increase significantly as this financial assistance is gradually withdrawn, and especially in light of the EU Directive 1023/2019 on Preventive Restructuring (the ‘Restructuring Directive’), which gives a more central role to distressed creditors who will benefit from more flexible pre-insolvency instruments with a broader scope.
This second edition, co-published with TMA Europe, provides an overview of the European distressed-debt market and covers, among other topics:
- non-performing loans;
- direct lending; and
- restructuring and workouts.
It explores these subjects from a pan-European viewpoint and includes a comprehensive analysis of how the Restructuring Directive has been implemented. Chapters have been written by leading experts in the field, supported by consulting editors Ignacio Buil Aldana and Patricia Alvarez Alonso, partners in the restructuring, insolvency and special situations team at the London office of Spanish law firm Cuatrecasas.
Whether you are a lawyer in private practice or in-house, a financial adviser or an investor, this practical guide will provide you with invaluable insight and a better understanding of the commercial and legal complexities involved in the European distressed-debt market.
