Today’s landscape in the distressed company space requires a wide array of strengths to help companies and their many stakeholders achieve a successful outcome. Our lawyers bring a broad base of skills, experience and strategies to company-side restructuring engagements. We pride ourselves on seeing the forest, the trees and everything in between.

Our approach is one carefully cultivated to achieve trust and credibility from company stakeholders, be they aligned or litigious. We recognize that nearly all modern restructurings, whether in court or out-of-court special situations, are at their core merger and acquisition deals. Our philosophy as restructuring lawyers therefore fosters a deal-based mindset as our foundation. We execute on our company-side services with project management techniques, taking into account the many critical path elements of restructurings, and carefully integrating with the work of other company advisors, as well as advisors to other company stakeholders.

The restructuring attorneys in our group have deep deal experience. We are closely integrated with firm attorneys in our commercial litigation, transactional and corporate finance teams, who routinely work on distressed and restructuring situations. Our engagements include collaboration with lawyers from other disciplines including pension, environmental, health care, tax, finance, corporate, and labor and benefits matters. Our integrated team is well versed in the special demands that arise in distressed situations: speed, accuracy, creativity, flexibility and effective execution.
