Overview

From billion-dollar fraudulent transfer litigation and appellate resolution of cutting-edge bankruptcy issues to multi-national Chapter 11 restructurings, WilmerHale has been at the forefront of complex financial restructuring and bankruptcy litigation and policy matters for decades.

Legal issues in bankruptcy are often complex and evolve at a fast pace. Addressing these issues requires the persistence, focus and dedication of counsel with sophisticated legal skills in order to turn difficult financial issues into opportunities. Our lawyers have decades of experience advising clients in virtually all aspects of financial restructuring matters—both in and out of court—and in complex bankruptcy litigation, regulation and policy matters across the globe. We collaborate regularly with lawyers in the firm’s corporate, debt finance, securities, derivatives, real estate, tax, international trade, intellectual property, venture capital, regulatory, and insurance groups to advise clients and achieve successful results for them. We have extensive experience where bankruptcy and financial institutions issues intersect, and on matters where bankruptcy and intellectual property issues overlap.
