Creditors and distressed investors at all levels of the capital structure benefit from our experience representing a broad range of parties in in- and out-of-court restructurings, liability management transactions, debt refinancings and recapitalization transactions. We appreciate the multifaceted issues pertinent to each constituency and the interparty dynamics – resulting in our proven ability to bring parties to the table to successfully negotiate creative solutions.
We are a leader in representing ad hoc groups of lenders and noteholders, including groups of institutional investors, CLOs and hedge funds. We often represent the “fulcrum” creditor group that will own the restructured company, and we work with lawyers across the firm to assist in rebuilding the company.
Davis Polk’s seamless multidisciplinary platform is an unmatched strength in critical restructuring matters. That firmwide collaboration includes work with our Finance team on bespoke DIP and exit finance arrangements.
