Bankruptcy and Debt Restructuring

Sayenko Kharenko has been the market leader in capital markets and bank syndications work for the last few years. We are very well positioned to advise both lenders and borrowers on how to most efficiently recover their funds or restructure outstanding debt.

Since the breakdown of the financial crisis at the end of 2008, the Firm has handled the country’s largest debt restructurings totalling over USD 12 billion. Within this period, the Firm has advised clients on the restructurings of local debt instruments, cross-border secured and unsecured financings as well as international capital markets instruments.

The Firm currently advises international lenders, ECAs, insurance companies, governmental agencies, trustees and borrowers on the largest restructurings in all major industries including banking, food processing, telecommunications, public sector, real estate, retail, steel, insurance and others.

Apart from the Firm’s experience in restructuring of local debt instruments, our team is regularly instructed by clients to act on the restructurings of cross-border debt and distressed assets sale.
