Our integrated U.S. and European restructuring professionals offer the hands-on, results-driven experience that today’s distressed situations demand.

We represent a broad spectrum of clients in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and other key European jurisdictions.
Our team is known for its ability to evaluate quickly the restructuring challenges facing distressed companies and their creditors. We employ creativity, practical legal judgment and an interdisciplinary approach to obtain our clients’ desired results efficiently. Through our decades of shared experience and by leveraging the knowledge of Willkie’s complementary practice groups, we provide our clients with real-time, realistic assessments of the likely range of obtainable outcomes and the most effective path forward.
