  • V&E is a go-to firm for bankruptcy and restructuring work in Texas and nationally. V&E has received key, high-profile engagements in most of the significant Chapter 11 cases filed in Texas over the past decade. The depth, experience and longevity of V&E’s insolvency team have been distinguishing factors from its competition, as has our firm’s extensive experience and capabilities in bankruptcy litigation.
  • During the past few years, V&E’s insolvency lawyers have been involved in Chapter 11 cases and out-of court restructurings in Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, New York, South Carolina, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and, of course, Texas. In addition, V&E continues to handle insolvency matters on an international basis.
  • V&E is recognized as a distinguished global energy firm, and this focus is a known factor in our bankruptcy and restructuring practice. Moreover, our practice has significant experience in virtually every industry, including recent engagements involving the energy, retail, telecom, real estate and shipping industries. Approximately half of V&E’s insolvency practice is comprised of debtor or company-side engagements, with the balance split among: (a) secured lender work; (b) representation of financial and strategic buyers of assets in Chapter 11 cases; and (c) representation of Chapter 11 trustees and other significant parties with an interest in major Chapter 11 cases.
