Our Legal Thinking

We have decades of experience working with the most high-profile event-driven/special situation funds.

We understand that special situation deals have an additional layer of complexity, compared to investing in traditional assets, especially where the situational event relies on a legal or regulatory tactic/analysis to unlock value.

As your long-term legal partner, we help you combine legal and commercial strategies to drive results – as our Managing Partner has done on some of the largest and most high-profile restructurings/insolvencies in recent years.

The Difference with Allectus

We understand that special situational transactions require us to think harder about how the law can be used to drive desired investment outcomes for you.

At the outset, and as part of our legal due diligence, we analyse all your angles by conducting a vigorous assessment of every eventuality.

Having identified all your potential issues, we create innovative risk-adjusted solutions.

All our documentation is carefully and thoughtfully drafted, setting out a clear pathway to mitigating your risk while maximising your value.

Once your acquisition is complete, our work continues. We work tirelessly to implement a “value-unlocking” strategy and procure an optimal exit for you.
