Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP’s litigators appear frequently in bankruptcy court on behalf of our financial restructuring clients. Our clients are often creditors in these cases, including official creditors’ committees, ad hoc committees and individual creditors, such as hedge funds and institutional investors. Bankruptcy cases tend to move fast and therefore require quick analyses of complicated capital structures and financial transactions and often involve expedited discovery and contested hearings and trials. Bankruptcy court decisions also often lead to expedited appeals to the district court and circuit court.
Our team is nimble and well-experienced in these settings and is at the forefront of recent proposed changes to bankruptcy legislation. Our lawyers have testified before the Advisory Committee on Bankruptcy Rules and also frequently speak at events hosted by the American Bankruptcy Institute, the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges, The American College of Investment Counsel and the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section, among others.
