Our Insolvency practice area is one of the fastest growing in the Firm in recent years, not only in terms of size, but also in terms of the importance and nature of the matters involved.

The GA_P Insolvency team enjoys extraordinary recognition as a result of its outstanding participation in the most important pre-insolvency and insolvency proceedings held in Spain. By way of example, the Gómez-Acebo & Pombo Insolvency team has filed for insolvency proceedings against the largest Spanish real estate developer in what have so far been the largest insolvency proceedings in Europe. Likewise, our Insolvency team was responsible for instituting the first insolvency proceedings of a financial institution in Spain in accordance with current insolvency legislation and, finally, has advised and is advising creditors with predominant positions in the most important insolvency proceedings and media relevance conducted in Spain.

The experience that arises from the management of complex insolvency proceedings, as well as from the management of other corporate matters in different areas of insolvency law, has enabled our lawyers to possess all the professional qualities necessary to be able to successfully provide comprehensive advice to the client in any of the situations arising from insolvency proceedings.

Our areas of activity in this field are:

  • Preparation and filing of insolvency proceedings petitioned by debtors or creditors.
  • Disputes and acknowledgments of claims.
  • Representation and defence of creditors in all stages of the proceedings.
  • Insolvency issues from the termination of freelance or business agreements, and avoidance (clawback) actions.
  • Preparation, drafting and negotiation of compositions with creditors.
  • Role as insolvency practitioners.
