Amar Adatia

Amar leads our solvent structuring and group reorganisation practice in the UK.

Amar has significant experience in making restructurings (whether local, national or global) a positive experience for clients. Amar prides himself on being an extension of his clients' teams, working closely with them and their other advisors to ensure that even the most complex plans are executed seamlessly. Amar firmly believes that change does not have to be bad, scary or expensive and he uses his deep knowledge of the mechanisms of a restructure, his thirst for being innovative in service delivery and his international experiences to help his clients stay in control, minimise surprises and maximise their reward.

Amar regularly advises a broad range of clients on a variety of structuring devices including distributions, reductions of capital, capital contributions, demergers and wind downs.


Amar's clients are very broad and diverse ranging from large multi-jurisdictional corporate groups through to family run businesses, local authorities and not-for-profit organisations.
