We have a dedicated team of attorneys who regularly advise on distressed transactions in and outside of formal bankruptcy proceedings. Working seamlessly with our core financial restructuring team, we have played a role in many high-profile and complex restructurings over the last several years.

We work closely with clients to understand capital structures, structure transactions, find creative solutions to issues arising in non-traditional financings and provide fast execution in order to successfully restructure distressed balance sheets. We frequently advise troubled companies and their creditors, as well as administrative agents and indenture trustees, on bridge financings, debtor-in-possession financings, debt-for-equity exchanges, debt-for-debt exchanges, exit financings and rescue financings.
