Insolvency Law

Fylgia has one of Sweden’s largest insolvency law departments. We have seventeen bankruptcy administrators, seven associates handling ongoing cases and a further ten employees dealing with the administration of such cases. Fylgia has handled many large and complex bankruptcies in recent years.

The lawyers in the insolvency department also work with company reconstructions as well as liquidations on assignment from Boverket (Swedish Companies Registration Office).

Company Reconstructions

Company reconstructions is a relatively new development under Swedish law as it was first introduced in 1996. Reconstructions...

give companies the chance to clean up their finances and avoid bankruptcy.

By using an experienced lawyer appointed as an administrator to look through a company’s business situation, the company then has the opportunity to negotiate a composition – or enforce a compulsory composition. A composition means company debts can be negotiated down to a level which creditors and debtors can accept. A compulsory composition is enforced by a court order, regardless of whether a clear majority of creditors support it. A company in financial difficulties which contacts a lawyer early to see whether a reconstruction is possible increases its chances of saving itself from bankruptcy. The main precondition for a company reconstruction to be successful is contacting a lawyer with expertise in the field as early as possible.

The liquidation of a company is a formalized affair whereby one must ensure the company’s debts are paid and thereafter...

any remaining property such as cash, securities, property or intellectual property are distributed to shareholders. During a liquidation, the liquidator acts as the company’s board, whilst shareholders retain their position as the chief decision-making body via the AGM or EGM.

The decision to liquidate a company maybe voluntary, or forced via a decision from the Swedish Companies Registration Office or a court

Our lawyers offer a vast experience in this field for all types of liquidation and all kinds of company.
