Bankruptcy, Insolvency, and Restructuring Litigation

We handle disputes arising out of bankruptcies, restructurings, and special situations.  Our experience runs the gamut from traditional adversary proceedings in bankruptcy to pre-filing and distressed-debt litigation, judgment enforcement matters, disputes involving sovereign debt, arbitrations, and appeals.  We are well versed in the strategic decision‑making required in these complex and multifaceted matters. 

We represent creditors, directors, trustees, committees, administrators, investors, judgment debtors and creditors, and government agencies in bankruptcies and adjacent disputes.  With our white-collar criminal defense experience, we are also well suited to conduct investigations in insolvency matters where fraud or other misconduct may be at issue.

We also have extensive experience before state and federal appellate courts on complex insolvency and financial matters.  Our team has achieved numerous wins in high-profile structured finance appeals that have changed the legal landscape – cases with billions of dollars at stake.  And in recent years, our team has filed numerous briefs addressing insolvency and judgment-enforcement issues before the federal courts of appeals and the Supreme Court.

Our practice has international reach.  We are experienced in representing creditors and other stakeholders in Chapter 15 proceedings.  We litigate both for and against sovereigns on liability and enforcement matters.  We have experience in international arbitration across a range of forums.  And we handle complex judgment-enforcement matters that reach across borders.

We routinely work both on our own and in coordination with other firms to reach the right result for our clients.  Our lack of conflicts compared to larger firms provides us the tactical flexibility that complex corporate bankruptcies or distressed-debt disputes often require.
