Cross-Border and Multi-National Insolvencies
Due to the continued globalization of business worldwide and our clients', and the firm's, expansion into overseas markets, our lawyers are increasingly involved in multi-national and cross-border matters ranging the whole gamut of services provided to United States based clients on United States based matters.
Duane Morris lawyers routinely represent foreign companies asserting interests against domestic debtors, both in federal district and federal bankruptcy courts. These lawyers have also represented foreign companies in their efforts to acquire assets from a bankrupt debtor's estate or in structuring other transactions with debtors-in-possession. The firm is often called upon to represent parties-in-interest in cross-border cases filed by or on behalf of foreign debtors under Chapter 15 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. In addition, our lawyers have been involved in numerous overseas financial restructuring transactions involving multi-national companies and the restructuring of indebtedness owed to both domestic and foreign lenders.
