Faegre Drinker has the well-earned reputation of having one of the most experienced teams in international matters, specializing in precedent-setting, cross-border restructurings and insolvencies. 

Our dedicated attorneys across the United States and in London have led restructuring matters spanning the globe, including in the U.S., the U.K., numerous European jurisdictions, Scandinavia, the CIS, numerous offshore jurisdictions (including Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Bahamas and British Virgin Islands), Canada, Latin America and Asia. The team’s experience of having led numerous market-leading, cross-border mandates means that we have deep experience of restructuring regimes in key jurisdictions around the world, facilitating an ability to craft solutions using the best tools for the matter at hand. In particular, we have significant experience in utilizing restructuring regimes to drive commercial solutions to mass tort and similar liabilities, as well as in multi-jurisdictional distressed private equity and real estate matters. In addition, we have designed and implemented successful multi-jurisdictional litigation strategies.

Faegre Drinker is recognized as one of the world’s leading law firms for cross-border restructuring and insolvency matters by its inclusion in the GRR30, as compiled by Global Restructuring Review. The team is also recognized by Chambers, Best Lawyers and other publications.

Known for formulating and executing innovative, bespoke solutions in complex and challenging matters, our team helps clients achieve the most favorable outcomes in difficult financial circumstances. We represent all constituents in bankruptcy and restructuring matters — multinational corporations, debtors, lenders and secured creditors, committees, trade creditors, bondholders, indenture trustees, boards of directors, insolvency office holders, investors, receivers, private investment funds and distressed asset purchasers. The group has a broad and diverse range of experience in developing effective strategies that address the highly nuanced issues that arise in connection with in- and out-of-court reorganizations, restructurings, workouts and liquidations across the world. 

Our corporate restructuring team represents clients in a wide range of industries — many with unique and complex legal issues. We regularly represent clients in energy, mass tort, agribusiness, health care, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, automotive, aviation, higher education and real estate industry restructurings. 

Further, Faegre Drinker operates on a “one firm” model, bringing all the resources at the firm’s disposal to provide a representation tailored to a client’s specific needs. One of the benefits of this is that our London team works closely with its U.S. counterparts to ensure a cohesive, coordinated approach to advising on cross-border matters. Our restructuring team is located throughout the U.S., in New York, Wilmington (Delaware), Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Denver, Florham Park (New Jersey) and Philadelphia, as well as in London and additional resources in our Shanghai office. We also regularly collaborate with colleagues in related practice areas, including commercial litigation, M&A, finance, capital markets, tax, regulatory, labor and benefits, so that we can meet the unique demands of each matter, and earn trust and build credibility on all sides.
