Overview

The Firm's roster of corporate finance, litigation and bankruptcy experts place it in a unique position to achieve the critical balance between the transactional and workout expertise required when the time comes to deal with distressed companies.

While our leading corporate finance and merger and acquisition practices provide our lawyers with the main skills required to successfully advise our clients in debt restructurings (timely delivery, creative approach to develop innovative legal structures, capacity to manage demanding negotiations, experience in dealing with sizeable bank syndicates), our litigation department provides profound knowledge and expertise in bankruptcy and reorganization law (including handling of complex court proceedings and testing of legal structures for potential dispute scenarios).

The Firm has participated in the design and negotiation of numerous standstill and restructuring agreements and the structuring of collateral packages.
