Financing and Financial Restructuring Transactions
The Deal ranks Duane Morris as the most active bankruptcy practice in the United States. No firm handles more cases than Duane Morris. (Active cases involve an estimated $979.8 billion in liabilities. Q2 2014)
Many lawyers in the Business Reorganization and Financial Restructuring group do not describe themselves simply as "bankruptcy" lawyers. This is due to the fact that much of their work involves sophisticated financing, workout and out-of-court debt restructuring transactions that do not involve or require bankruptcy court supervision.
Our lawyers routinely represent individual lenders, lending syndicates, agents and borrowers in both "front-end" asset-based loan and other forms of business financing transactions, as well as all types of financial restructuring transactions, including forbearance and/or amendment agreements, refinancing transactions, debt-for-equity swaps, recapitalizations, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. From simple bilateral transactions involving one lender to syndicated multi-tranche and multi-facility transactions, our transactional lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help our clients get the deal done in a timely manner, regardless of whether court supervision is required.
