Financial Restructuring > Debtor and Distressed Company Representations

Our financial restructuring attorneys are widely recognized as market leaders in advising troubled companies, their management and boards. All types of companies—big, small, public, private, domestic, international, operationally challenged, over-leveraged—heavily rely on us to advise them through their distressed periods. These companies all value the fact that Akin Gump specializes in determining, for each and every company, the specific solution that best fits its needs and then tenaciously but cautiously seeks to achieve that solution. Where issues can be dealt with consensually, we guide our clients through out-of-court restructurings; where speed, cost and certainty are of paramount importance, we use our extensive experience to devise prepackaged or prearranged chapter 11 filings; and, where a consensual out-of-court restructuring or prepackaged filing is not possible, we will proceed with chapter 11 filings.

Representing distressed companies requires the work of attorneys from across various disciplines to move the company from “distressed” to “reorganized” as efficiently as possible. Our unified team is adept at performing the myriad of tasks involved in these engagements, including those listed here.
