With more than 350 committee and group representations since 2000, our team has been involved in some of the highest-profile and most complex restructurings in recent history:
Three Former Icelandic Banks (Kaupthing, Landsbanki and Glitnir)
A global powerhouse
We have been at the heart of landmark matters stemming from the global financial crisis, and many of the significant restructurings in the telecommunications, transportation, shipping, maritime, manufacturing, and traditional and renewable energy sectors. Our team sits in the world’s major financial centers and spans three continents; we are concentrated in New York, London, Washington, DC, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Dallas.
We have diverse experience working with sophisticated distressed investors. Our engagements often begin at the investment stage and continue through development of the in-court or out-of-court restructuring. We have worked with many of the world’s leading funds, financial institutions and insurers on their distressed investing activities.

Our bankruptcy litigation team handles fast-moving bankruptcy cases that often require expedited discovery and contested hearings akin to mini-trials. We have successfully represented clients in contested confirmation and 363 sale hearings, avoidance actions and other bankruptcy litigation.
Our interdisciplinary teams work as strategic partners with distressed companies to craft unique out-of-court and in-court restructuring solutions; advise directors on their fiduciary duties; retain personnel; negotiate financing or investment arrangements; and conduct the sale of non-core assets or business lines.
