Our Insolvency and Business Recovery Services support and advise from a legal perspective on the design, structuring and implementation of efficient and viable turnaround plans for financially distressed companies.

Our services may be provided alongside the dedicated PwC Deals-Business Recovery Services team.

Our range of services includes:

  • Legal assessment of options under the pertinent Greek regulatory framework;

Successful business recoveries generate viable businesses, contribute to economic stability and bolster business sustainability indexes, while releasing human resources and capital tied-up into distressed situations.
