Davis Polk is widely recognized as one of the world's premier law firms for restructuring. We represent companies, financial institutions, committees, hedge funds, investors, acquirers, trustees, administrators and receivers in connection with the largest and most complex:
- Exchange offer and debt/equity conversions
- DIP Financings
- Exit Financings
- Distressed Mergers and Acquisitions
We have advised on several marquee insolvencies and restructurings, including matters involving AIG, American Airlines, Delta, Enron, Frontier Airlines, Ford, Kodak, Lehman Brothers, LyondellBasell, Polaroid, Tribune and RadioShack.
Davis Polk is also a firm of choice for cross-border insolvency and restructuring matters, particularly in Asia, Brazil and other parts of Latin America. We are actively involved in some of the largest insolvency cases in Latin America, with major assignments involving Odebrecht Oil & Gas, Pacific E&P, Oro Negro, Embraport, Grupo Infinity, USS Asucare Alcohol, Schahin and Tonon to name a few, as well as several notable sovereign assignments involving entities such as the Republic of Argentina and the Government Development Bank of Puerto Rico.
Davis Polk is further distinguished from our peers by our market share of the most strategic and innovative advisory and transactional assignments. We have been the leading U.S.-based global law firm working, both domestically and internationally, with regulators to solve the “too big to fail” problem and with their financial institutions clients on “living wills” required under the Dodd-Frank Act.
