We are a global leader in distressed claims transactions, leveraging the breadth and depth of the firm’s resources throughout the world and have firsthand knowledge of the business, regulatory and legal landscapes in every major international jurisdiction. Our attorneys are well-versed in LSTA, LMA and ISDA standard trade documentation, and are equally skilled in crafting bespoke documents tailored to suit the individual needs of our clients and their investments.
