Arnold & Porter LLP's Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring practice represents a diverse client base, including corporate debtors, investors and asset purchasers, committees, bondholders, secured and unsecured creditors, parties dealing with distressed businesses, officers and directors, and other interested parties in corporate restructurings, bankruptcy proceedings, and related litigation throughout the United States.
Our firm and its bankruptcy partners have been recognized by numerous publications as being among the leading bankruptcy lawyers in the United States. Bankruptcy Court Decisions-Weekly News & Comment named Arnold & Porter one of 12 law firms in the United States "providing exemplary service to corporate bankruptcy clients." We have repeatedly been recognized in Chambers USA: America's Leading Business Lawyers as a leading bankruptcy and restructuring practice. Our lawyers have also appeared in The Best Lawyers in America, Lawdragon 500, Legal 500 US: Corporate and Finance, Super Lawyers, Guide to the World's Leading Insolvency and Restructuring Lawyers, and other publications. Our bankruptcy partners are frequent lecturers, published authors, and widely recognized professionals in their field.
Our bankruptcy lawyers are experienced litigators. We appear in trial and appellate courts throughout the United States and are often involved in precedent-setting cases. Our transactional experience is equally extensive. Our Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring group has taken the lead in a number of sophisticated transactions in some of the country's largest bankruptcy cases. We have also negotiated and structured successful out-of-court restructurings, helped clients acquire distressed assets or businesses, and advised clients on their dealings with troubled companies.
Our practice includes full-time bankruptcy professionals as well as attorneys from other practice areas, such as litigation, corporate and securities, finance, tax, environmental, antitrust, real estate, intellectual property, and government contracts, who assist with particular issues on an as-needed basis. As bankruptcy issues rarely arise in a vacuum, this multidisciplinary coordination is particularly valuable to our clients. Readily available substantive experience in related areas of the law is often essential to efficient and effective representation.
Although we have a national practice and are often involved in high profile, complex cases, we also can (and regularly do) handle smaller local and regional bankruptcy matters in an efficient, cost-conscious way. Our lawyers staff matters leanly and are mindful of the economic pressures under which many of our clients operate. We provide the same standard of excellence whether the case is a routine bankruptcy litigation matter, a large international insolvency, or a major corporate reorganization.
