Davis Polk is widely recognized as one of the world’s premier law firms for its insolvency and restructuring practice. Our lawyers represent companies, financial institutions, hedge funds, investors, acquirers, trustees, administrators and receivers in connection with the largest and most complex restructurings. As one of the only firms in the world with both a leading debtor-side and lender-side practice, we understand the goals of all stakeholders and can develop aggressive strategies to maximize recoveries for our clients.
Our bankruptcy litigation team’s unique capabilities allow us to better address a range of issues. With experienced litigators, we handle a wide-range of complex commercial litigations in jurisdictions across the world, providing focus and insight that are not present when a bankruptcy litigation is led solely by transactional bankruptcy lawyers or by general commercial litigators. Our skilled lawyers routinely take leading roles in developing and advancing arguments, effectively analyze complex bankruptcy issues in order to protect our clients’ interests, and work seamlessly with our corporate colleagues and general commercial litigators in complimentary roles.
We routinely litigate bankruptcy-related claims and issues in multiple jurisdictions:
- Fraudulent Conveyance
- Equitable Subordination
- Insider/Control Issues
- Valuation Disputes
We litigate and advocate in situations that are unique to the bankruptcy sphere:
- Post-settlement defense and plan enforcement
- In-Bankruptcy Mediation
- In-Bankruptcy Investigations
In addition to involvement in almost every aspect of the Insolvency and Restructuring practice, our Bankruptcy Litigation group has been involved in the significant matters described below.
