Restructuring & Insolvency Advisers 2019: Trends & Conclusions

For the first time, WWL presents a dedicated guide to non-lawyer experts in the restructuring and insolvency space, an interesting and dynamic field that has seen numerous trends and developments. One practitioner listed off just some of the issues likely to have implications on the market: “Next year and the year after, we’re expecting to get pretty busy; consumer confidence is quite low, we’ve got China slowdown, possible US recession, Brexit, and US interest rates.” In the restructuring and insolvency industry itself, the profession has been placed under scrutiny by regulators, with the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) highlighting serious competition issues. Meanwhile, in 2018 a record number of store closures in the retail sector was noted, and as fundamental change brought about by, among other things, the digital revolution, continues, practitioners in the field can expect more work in this area.
