Clients working with S&C on a restructuring benefit from our three competitive strengths:
S&C’s restructuring practice is a fully integrated part of the Firm. S&C’s top lawyer in every area—including the senior lawyers of every practice group—are available to every restructuring client. As a result, we have a remarkable record of importing into a restructuring assignment cutting-edge legal techniques from beyond the normal restructuring playbook. Real dollar differences in M&A, finance, litigation, tax and executive compensation results demonstrate the value of our approach.
Our restructuring assignments have the support of the entire 300+-person litigation group at S&C—arguably the most elite team of generalist business litigators in the world. We prepare for bankruptcy litigation in the same comprehensive manner we prepare for other Federal court litigation, and we win.
Our restructuring lawyers are widely respected as some of the smartest on the street. Yet we have never seen ourselves as members of the restructuring ‘club’ dependent on referrals from repeat players in the bankruptcy industry. Our uncompromisable loyalty is to the client and is the bedrock of everything we do.
We represent a range of both domestic and international participants across the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific, including debtors, creditors and private equity investors, as well as sovereign entities, boards and sponsors in Chapter 11, Chapter 15 and other restructuring matters.
Sullivan & Cromwell lawyers have been involved in hundreds of restructuring transactions, including as they pertain to the COVID-19 pandemic and environmental, social and governance (ESG), among other current relevant issues. Representative matters include the following, and more specific credentials are available upon request for any industry or jurisdiction.
