The world is braced for a wave of restructuring as businesses adjust to the new corporate and financial landscape post-COVID-19.

Montfort has an unrivalled advisory track record from every major downturn since Black Monday in 1987. In these situations experience, integrity and speed are vital.

Inevitably these are complex and business critical processes. There are also significant reputational issues/challenges to any restructuring that involves redundancies, due to the increased scrutiny from Government, unions, media and other stakeholders.

We have the track record, contacts, ability and bandwidth to respond swiftly and achieve optimal outcomes.

We understand market and regulatory sensitivities and can work seamlessly and efficiently with financial and legal advisers.

Our Restructuring Team has experience of working on all types of major transformation programmes, corporate issues and crises and workplace relations and can provide communications advice across all elements of a restructure:

  • Capital market communications: including investor relations, proxy solicitation, M&A and fund raising. With our deep experience of capital markets we can help companies to secure the finance they need through rights issues, capital raisings, and strategic sales, as well as explaining to investors the changes to their strategic approach and corporate structure
  • Regulatory and policy: when the support of policy makers is paramount, we can make sure that our clients’ messages are understood and supported
  • Employee engagement and change management: we work hand-in-hand with inhouse teams to deliver clearly defined outcomes in complicated change programmes
  • Litigation and disputes: our specialised litigation communications team is highly experienced in helping clients navigate these complex processes
