Our group has longstanding experience with cross-border insolvencies, and has first-hand knowledge of insolvency matters in multiple foreign jurisdictions. Our lawyers are involved in some of largest and most significant multi-jurisdictional cases involving the United States, Iceland, Japan, Hong Kong/China, Mexico, the UK, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Canada, Latin America, and elsewhere. We are familiar with the courts and insolvency professionals in these venues and jurisdictions.
Our firm’s cross-border experience includes regularly advising multinational institutions on restructuring or liquidating their businesses, formulating strategies for managing relationships with parties facing insolvency, resolving cross-border claims and litigation, and steering clients through the regulatory and judicial regimes of the various jurisdictions where they conduct business.
Our cross-border experience frequently includes the representation of institutions seeking recognition of their foreign insolvency proceedings in the United States under Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code. Our firm’s significant involvement in cross-border restructurings during the peak years of the evolution of Chapter 15 has allowed our professionals to gain a unique understanding of the issues facing foreign entities seeking relief in the United States.
