Restructuring and insolvency

Work highlights 

Acted for Design Studio Group and five of its subsidiaries in applying for a moratorium in aid of their debt restructuring exercise involving over 1,000 creditors and in obtaining court approval for leave to convene scheme meetings. In a landmark decision, the Singapore High Court approved the client’s application for a $62 million rescue financing package which incorporated a ‘roll up’ of a bank lender’s pre-existing debt. This is the first successful rescue financing application involving a roll-up feature and signals the growing sophistication of Singapore’s debt restructuring regime.
