We take care of our clients’ needs

Likewise, in the event of insolvency, we will manage this, striving for the continuity of the activity of the company in administration and safeguarding its directors against insolvency liability.

In the case of individuals who are not businesspeople, the firm specialises in debt relief for natural persons, whether or not they are businesspeople, through the second-chance mechanism introduced in the Insolvency Act, reduction of the financial burden and other measures of a social nature, known as the Second Chance Act.

Derecho concursal

We help our clients prevent and solve economic and financial crises in their companies and businesses by using the most appropriate pre-insolvency proceedings in accordance with their specific situation or by administration proceedings that seek to protect the rights and interests of the insolvent company and protect and reduce the liability of the governing body, while at the same time maximising satisfaction for creditors and enabling the economic activity of the insolvent company to continue.

This legal mechanism that offers individuals and businesses the possibility of overcoming a financial situation of insolvency by signing a creditor agreement that makes it possible to restructure the debt, either by reducing the amount or modifying the payment period, or even both and, if this is not accepted, by writing off part of the debt. Ultimately, it is a chance to begin again.
