Quinn Emanuel’s bankruptcy and restructuring group is widely recognized as a leader in the United States, Europe, and Australia. We represent parties at all levels of the capital structure of financially distressed companies and municipalities in insolvency proceedings, related litigation, and out-of-court workouts. Our clients include private equity sponsors, bondholders, hedge funds, mezzanine and second lien lenders, unsecured creditor and equity committees, litigation trusts, contract counterparties, and claim and asset acquirers. We have an outstanding record of success in pursuing or defending against litigation in virtually every aspect of distressed investing, including breach of fiduciary claims, preference and fraudulent transfer litigation, subordination disputes, intercreditor fights, and litigation over substantive consolidation and enterprise or asset valuation.
Our restructuring lawyers are able to utilize the firm’s other litigation groups to advance our clients’ interests as the industry and company profile dictates, whether it be litigating competition issues, intellectual property disputes, fraud, securities, structured financial products, or corporate governance. The degree to which our complex financial fluency can be combined with our courtroom skill is unrivaled by our peers. We aim to dominate our opponents in the courtroom. At the same time, we are very successful at delivering outcomes that maximize value through negotiated resolutions. We are known as being aggressive, creative, strategic, and practical--attributes that serve our clients well, whether they be hedge funds, private equity sponsors, statutory committees, or ad hoc creditor or equity groups.
