going concern, as financial advisor to a listed special steel producer in connection with the recapitalisation and refinancing of financial liabilities, and as advisor to a majority stateowned organisation in the aviation industry in connection with the COVID-19 crisis. I also acted as an advisor to a fashion retailer in Switzerland in connection with the analysis of potential restructuring options as part of the composition proceedings and subsequently in the controlled wind-down of the business and the liquidation of the company.” It would be a notable understatement to say that the COVID-19 pandemic proved to be a crucial period for advisory teams around the world, with the uncertainty of the business climate leading many to financial difficulty. This period acted as a trial by fire for Peter and his team to expand their expertise on how to tackle largescale restructuring challenges.

All in all, Peter represents the pinnacle of an industry that demands excellence across the board – a task he has taken in his stride, with a team that perfectly accompanies his incredible skillset.
