GLS Debt Restructuring Solutions:

When cost-savings are a must-have


Pooja and GLS Partner and Head of the GLS Indonesia Desk Rina Lee co-organised a Masterclass on “How to Implement a Painless Debt Restructuring” on Thursday, 12 July in Jakarta.


This was a unique, bilingual “teach-in” event which focussed on the legal and practical aspects of a debt restructuring from both an international and a domestic perspective.


The event was co-hosted by GLS and FAMS&P Lawyers and covered FAQs such as:

  • Early steps you can take to prevent a debt restructuring project from escalating into a crisis;
  • How consent provisions in international loan and bond documents work and how they can affect a restructuring;
  • How to build an effective strategy for capital restructuring;   
  • How to build an effective communication channel with domestic and international stakeholders;
  • How to navigate the pitfalls of the PKPU process; and
  • How to design and implement an effective plan to deal with post-restructuring life.

Featured speakers at the event were:

  • Dr. TeddyAnggoro, Partner, FAMS&P Lawyers, Indonesia
  • Acep Sugiana, Partner, FAMS&P Lawyers, Indonesia
  • Pooja Sinha, Partner GLS Law, Singapore
  • Robert Schmitz, Managing Director  Fulcrum Advisory Asia, Singapore

The Problem:

You’re involved in a debt restructuring deal and need to “deep-dive” into the specifics ASAP.

Related challenges include:

  • wading quickly through the maze of existing loan and bond documents to identify the relevant provisions;
  • identifying what’s needed to keep the key supply and sale agreements of the business alive;
  • drafting the documents needed to implement the deal;
  • the capacity of you and your team is permanently stretched; and
  • you need to maximize your or your client’s legal spend given the liquidity crunch.
