About

Provided by WilmerHale

From billion-dollar fraudulent transfer cases to multinational chapter 11 restructurings, WilmerHale’s Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Group helps its clients confront complex problems of insolvency and financial distress. Whether structuring transactions to avoid these problems, closing transactions to address them, or litigating their effects, WilmerHale is on the leading edge of bankruptcy-related practice.

Our client base is as broad as those affected by, and finding opportunities in, commercial financial distress. We combine our knowledge of the bankruptcy process with our trial experience to address bankruptcy litigation and regulation issues, providing our clients with the ideal team for legal representation in bankruptcy and creditor rights litigation. We advise buyers and investors in financially distressed companies, helping them minimize risk and maximize opportunity. We represent financial institutions and intellectual property licensors/licensees in structuring transactions to mitigate the specialized counterparty insolvency risk associated with financial markets, securities and commodities trading, and intellectual property. We advise clients on all aspects of bankruptcy and insolvency regulation through focused litigation efforts, appellate advocacy as parties and as amicus curiae, and development and management of corporate policies and procedures.
