The Restructuring Team at Teneo

Teneo’s global Restructuring business advises corporates, creditors and other financial stakeholders in situations of business change, transformation, reorganisation, and financial stress. No two situations are the same. Our advice and approach is tailored to each situation and each client. At Teneo, we believe such occurrences present new opportunities for our clients. Opportunities to enhance or restore value, raise new capital, pivot in a new direction and ultimately, identify certainty amidst uncertainty. Teneo partners with clients to find viable opportunities that will protect and enhance value and help them to build strategies that will most benefit their business and/or investment goals. Integrating the disciplines of restructuring, financial advisory, management consulting, investor relations, strategic communications, government affairs, risk analysis and talent advisory, Teneo’s global restructuring team guides companies and their stakeholders through periods of transformation, uncertainty, and stress. We help address the challenges a business faces, whether that is targeted performance improvement to business reorganisation, or delivering a route to recover value, our focus is delivering certainty from uncertainty.
