Our Practice

Our Restructuring Department continues to build on its reputation as a critical advisor in almost every major, complex and headline-grabbing restructuring matter, as demonstrated by the sheer number of high-profile representations we handle every year. We possess a thorough knowledge of every aspect of bankruptcy law, coupled with perspectives earned from representing every type of client. Our domestic and cross-border representations include debtors, official and unofficial committees of creditors, secured and unsecured creditors and equity sponsors in chapter 11 cases, corporate reorganizations and workouts and transactions involving financially distressed companies. We also routinely represent purchasers of the assets, debt and securities of distressed companies. We act on all sides of cutting-edge restructuring transactions and this depth of experience informs our practical, action-oriented advice.
