The Corporate Restructuring Group at Skadden provides innovative solutions to clients involved in distressed company situations, which allow clients to minimize costs, enhance value and properly position themselves for the future.

We represent troubled companies, their boards, management, owners, creditors, lenders, investors and acquirors handling restructurings in and out of court, financial recapitalizations, business reorganizations, acquisitions and liquidations. Our lawyers also advise on insolvency issues in corporate and financing transactions and on all aspects of distressed debt trading and securities issues. A substantial aspect of our practice focuses on avoiding or mitigating the adverse effects of liquidity or other crises through contingency planning and helping companies overcome the inertia of a downward spiral while they still have alternatives to bankruptcy. In addition, our presence in Europe, Asia and South America allows us to address clients’ needs in the context of insolvency and bankruptcy regimes around the world.

Our Corporate Restructuring Group consistently has been recognized by peers and restructuring professionals as one of the top practices in the world. Skadden was named Corporate Restructuring Team of the Year by The American Lawyer and Legal Week at the 2017 Transatlantic Legal Awards, as well as U.S. News — Best Lawyers Law Firm of the Year for its Corporate Restructuring Group as part of the publication’s 2017 “Best Law Firms” survey.
