Watson Farley & Williams Singapore has a unique ability to provide maritime, offshore oil & gas and aviation focussed restructuring and insolvency advice to banks and borrowers, advising on the restructuring of debt, bond and leasing facilities within our industry focus. The firm’s maritime and oil and gas restructuring experience is unmatched in Asia. Our unique strength in this practice area lies in our cross-practice group structure, with fee earners from the firm’s dispute resolution, corporate and assets and structured finance teams working together to advise on complex, cross-border transactions.
The transactions we are instructed on involve advice on insolvency regimes in multiple jurisdictions with the requirement for sector expertise on enforcement against particular assets and the practical issues involved. The cyclical nature of the maritime and offshore industries in particular have ensured that over the last two decades WFW Singapore has had a continued prevalence in the restructuring and insolvency work for the biggest names in maritime and offshore oil and gas in Asia. This is representative of the niche expertise required to practise restructuring & insolvency in these industries and is the reason why, for this type of work, we are the firm of choice over and above the mainstream restructuring and insolvency teams.
