Orrick’s Restructuring practice has consistently earned inclusion in the top ten bankruptcy legal advisor rankings in each quarter since 2015.
“We’re proud of Orrick’s continued top rankings in The Deal, which places us among the top tier bankruptcy firms internationally. Our rankings reflect the global nature of our work on some of the most complex bankruptcies and out of court restructurings of the year for both debtors and creditors”, said Raniero D’Aversa, Head of Orrick’s Restructuring practice.
The group handled several high-profile restructurings and bankruptcies in 2017, including the $3.7 billion international restructuring for drill ship operator Ocean Rig, which included a Chapter 15 filing in New York and schemes of arrangement under Cayman Island law. Orrick also advised Toyota Motor Corporation in connection with its exposure in the highly publicized restructuring of airbag manufacturer Takata, handled a unique bankruptcy proceeding involving tech start-up Lily Robotics, and advised lender groups and boards in the CHC and Seadrill bankruptcy cases. Other key matters have included advising creditors or trustees in major international restructurings for South Africa’s largest retailer, Edcon, French digital media group SoLocal, as well as French retailer Vivarte, among others.
The Deal’s Bankruptcy League Tables are the industry’s only league tables focused solely on active bankruptcy and out-of-court-restructuring cases. These rankings are compiled on a quarterly basis through comprehensive deal intelligence to identify the top law, crisis management, investment, and non-investment firms and professionals involved in bankruptcy transactions throughout the United States. Firms are ranked based on advice provided to creditors, debtors and out-of-court restructurings.
