About Our Client

My client's Corporate Restructuring & Bankruptcy practice has been involved in some of the largest and most complex in-court and out-of-court restructurings, domestically and internationally, and some of the highest profile bankruptcy and insolvency-related litigations.

The Corporate Restructuring & Bankruptcy practice has represented virtually all key stakeholders in transactional, litigation, and corporate governance matters related to restructurings, and has demonstrated expertise involving the following:

  • Directors and Special Committees
  • Debtor-in-Possession Lenders
  • Secured Lenders and Lender Groups
  • Unsecured Creditors' Committees
  • Corporate Trustees and Agents
  • Distressed Asset Sales
  • Company-Side Representations
  • Post-Confirmation Trusts and Trustees
  • Investors and Individual Creditors
  • Maritime and Offshore Restructuring
  • Bankruptcy Litigation

Job Description

  • Applicants would preferably have experience representing unsecured creditors' committees and independent directors/special committees, but experience representing debtors, lenders, bondholders, distressed asset purchasers, distressed investors and other parties involved in corporate bankruptcies is relevant (and could be sufficient).
  • The practice group is focused on providing clients with commercial solutions to restructuring issues and is extremely cost-effective. The group draws, as necessary, on the expertise of other practice groups to address the multidisciplinary problems that often arise in distressed situations. Corporate Restructuring & Bankruptcy practice attorneys frequently work with members of the Firm's corporate trust, corporate finance, litigation, investment management, M&A, capital markets, tax, real estate and maritime practice areas to provide clients with practical advice and outstanding client service.

The Successful Applicant

  • 5+ years of experience, up to and including counsel.
  • Looking for motivated candidates that can come in and handle discrete matters within larger cases and smaller cases independently with limited oversight, as well as someone with a desire to develop business.

What's on Offer

The position comes with the possibility for advancement in the near term under appropriate circumstances.
