Appointed in substantial and complex insolvency assignments as receivers, provisional liquidators and liquidators. Experts in large international corporate collapses, auditor and other professional negligence claims and related complex commercial and accounting investigations.

Even simple, amicable insolvencies are challenging. They become exponentially more complicated when they span multiple jurisdictions, involve suspected fraud and misconduct or consist complicated capital structures. In difficult situations, companies, creditors and investors need an experienced and independent fiduciary to establish realistic options for recovery, make robust recommendations and take a hands-on approach to implementing them.

Kroll helps clients navigate cross-border and contentious insolvencies while maximizing value to stakeholders. As a result of our independence, we are able to act quickly, which is crucial when prompt and critical decision-making is required. We take a flexible approach to resolving complex situations to achieve more effective outcomes.

We recognize the challenges that can arise from changing market conditions, competing interests within management, unforeseen events, fraudulent activity or mismanagement. When such situations present themselves, decision-makers must proactively implement the available remedies, with the assistance of experienced professionals, while also weighing the interests of creditors, investors, regulators and fiduciaries.
