Our lawyers provide clients with first-hand knowledge of the cultural, regulatory and legal landscapes in every major international jurisdiction.

Our European Restructuring team distinguishes Orrick from many other firms with whom we compete because of our on-the-ground resources and bankruptcy experience in London, Paris, Germany and Italy. Our lawyers have advised on restructuring matters in the U.S., Europe, the United Kingdom, China, Japan and Korea for global companies.

Our firm offers an unusually broad perspective because we helped shape the practices and documentation involving bankruptcy regulations around the globe. For example, members of our team:

  • Represent firms in formal and informal corporate restructuring mandates in the UK and Europe
  • Pursue multi-jurisdictional, fraud-based insolvency litigation and investigations on behalf of creditors
  • Restructure international Structured Investment Vehicles
  • Represent acquirers in cross-border acquisitions of distressed assets
  • Represent creditors and investment funds in restructurings of cross-border loans and investments
