Pierre-Emmanuel Fender is a partner in the Paris office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, and a member of the firm’s Business Restructuring & Reorganization and Litigation practice groups.
Mr. Fender specializes in complex cross-border restructurings often requiring a multi-jurisdictional approach. He regularly advises debtors, sponsors and hedge funds in out-of-court, pre-insolvency and insolvency proceedings. With particular expertise in distressed leveraged buyouts (LBO) (including loan-to-own strategies), he is known to provide pioneering solutions such as “fiducie” trusts and “golden share” protective arrangements. Mr. Fender also assists clients in any subsequent litigation which may arise following a restructuring.
His core litigation practice covers disputes in relation to restructurings, as well as general litigation – from product liability issues to claims brought in relation to breach of competition law. He has handled a number of the most sophisticated fiducie-related disputes and transactions in recent years.
Prior to joining Gibson Dunn in 2017, he practiced with Ashurst for fifteen years.
Graduated in 2000 from the University of Strasbourg III Robert Schumann, with a DESS (postgraduate degree) in business law and a DJCE Magistère (postgraduate degree) in Franco-German business law; and with an LLM in business law.
