        Middle East Focus: Restructuring, Winding Up and Liquidation

        In light of recent events relating to Abraaj Capital, the decision in the Al Gosaibi v Al Sanea case and MF Global, we have created a hub of information and advice from our industry experts to provide practical recommendations on the best course of action for investors and creditors when investments are at risk.

        As developments in the Abraaj Capital case continue to develop further, DWF's experts have the experience and knowledge to guide investors and creditors when investments are at risk. 

        We can provide practical recommendations and advise on the best course of action to develop collective strategies to protect and recover investments, either through a process of consensual restructuring or representation on steering committees to negotiate with other investors.

        If you are affected by, or would like to discuss issues relating to Abraaj Capital, please contact James Fox or Umera Ali

        DWF together with industry experts from Alvarez and Marsal Middle East and Rethink ME Ltd, held an interactive panel session to discuss creditor's rights.
