The Legal 500 reports that we “shine in creative, complex and difficult restructuring assignments.” We consistently rank among the top 10 bankruptcy law firms as listed by The Deal. Creditors, debtors, committees, lenders and other parties value the practical, commercial solutions we bring to every matter. We’ve been on both sides of the table, and that enables us to understand and address the goals and motivations of all parties. We offer distinctive strength in niche industries and products, and our record of success includes some of the most complex bankruptcy cases and out-of-court restructurings in the United States, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Japan and Korea.

Eligible employees will receive compensated time off through either a Paid Time Off or Flexible Time Off program (depending on position), generous Parental leave benefits, and paid holidays.
