Insolvency Law

Hoche provides advice and support to enterprises facing economical difficulties, their directors and shareholders in the choice of prevention tools (special purpose receivership (mandat ad hoc), safeguard, conciliation) with the objective of restructuring their activities. 

 It provides assistance to the court treatment of difficulties during reorganization proceedings or court-ordered liquidations, or in connection with related actions either commercial or criminal.

It works closely with other departments of the firm on issues relating to accounting, tax, employment or corporate law for the smooth conduct of cross-department operations.

The department also advises defaulting creditors and debtors, as regards both prevention and procedures to be undertaken by them (filing of claims, appointment as controller), and suppliers as regards the protection of their contractual rights.
Hoche also assists buyers in the submission and defence of takeover bids relating to the assets of insolvent companies and in formalising them after court authorisation is obtained. 

Lastly, the firm advises court-appointed receivers or liquidators in connection with assignments entrusted to them by the court or proceedings that they bring.
