Distressed Assets and Bankruptcy Advisory
Our professionals’ experience with distressed assets and the bankruptcy process goes back to the 1990s.
We advise institutional creditors and creditor committees in bankruptcies and out-of-court restructurings. We focus on industries in which we have particular expertise (energy, media, retail and healthcare), on disputed or complex claims (particularly complex litigation claims), and claims of Chinese creditors in US and other non-Asian restructurings.
Examples of litigation we have managed include worker and consumer class actions, single-event corporate antitrust and breach of contract claims, and government environmental claims. (In class action cases, we are typically engaged directly by class counsel.)
In addition to advisory services with respect to existing distressed obligations, we also provide clients with advice on transactions with distressed companies where we have existing expertise and relationships, including extension of new financing and the acquisition of assets.
